XTads pre-beta 6 is out

XTads is a TADS 2/3 interpreter for macOS (version 10.9 and higher). It’s a GUI application, with native macOS look and feel. Game output is text-only, with limited/simplistic support for HTML.

This version brings:

  • Support for pagination in banners (for T3 games that request it)
  • A few bug fixes and performance tweaks

XTads is still a work in progress. Bug reports and suggestions are more than welcome – see contact info in the program’s About panel.

Executable: https://ifarchive.org/if-archive/programming/tads2/executables/XTads-prebeta-6.zip

Source: https://ifarchive.org/if-archive/programming/tads2/source/XTads-prebeta-6-src.zip

Note that building XTads from source on macOS 10.13 (High Sierra) is problematic, due to changes in the dev tools. I’ll try to address this in the next version of XTads.
