Subject: [OMPI devel] README / OS X versions (was: 1.7.4rc2r30168 - configure failure on Mac OSX 10.5)
From: Jeff Squyres (jsquyres) (jsquyres_at_[hidden])
Date: 2014-01-10 08:42:38


For my own sanity:

10.9: Mavericks, last release Dec 2013
10.8: Mountain Lion, last release Oct 2013 (maybe not dead)
10.7: Lion, last release Oct 2012 (dead)
10.6: Snow Leopard, last release 2011 (dead)
10.5: Leopard, last release 2009 (dead)

I don't think we should expend any effort for 10.5; it's too old. I don't think I care about 10.6, either, but if it still works, I guess there's no real reason to remove it.

So this is just a +1 on removing 10.5 from the README.
