Rhino OS X update

There is a new build available, Wenatchee 2010-11-10, which includes the following changes:

  • The Python module has been updated to include the latest changes made in the Windows RhinoPython module. If you are using Python, be sure to also download and install the updated IronPython module. See the IronPython installation instructions for more information.
  • The current release of Paneling Tools is included in this WIP release.
Changes and fixes:
  • In preparation for the upcoming V5 version of Rhino, this version of Rhino now displays "RhinoV4" in the menu bar. The V5 version of Rhino will display "RhinoV5" so it is easy to tell which version you are running.
  • Commands that have default values now display that default value in the Value field in the command options dialog.
  • When exporting to DWG or DXF, you can now add or edit new export schemes. An AutoCAD export scheme defines how different Rhino objects are translated into AutoCAD objects.
  • Right-clicking the viewport label always displays the viewport context menu, even when the right click context menu for the viewport is disabled.
This release of Mac Rhino requires 10.5 (Leopard) or 10.6 (Snow Leopard) to run.

Everyone is invited to download and use the OS X version of Rhino while it is in development.

Most of the core functionality has been ported from Windows and is very stable. There is still much to do to port the rest of the functionality and refine the interface.

We don't expect the first commercial release to be ready until next year. Don't worry if the build you are using is about to expire. New versions will be available every few weeks. There will be a newer one available before the expiration date.
