Can someone confirm that this is the current state of Kicad on the

Is there anyway I can help with getting osx support working?
I can confirm that it appears that it's wxMac, or how we use wxWidgets
combined with the modernization of wxMac, that causes the majority of
wxMac is a moving target, and at the same time Apple is deprecating
old API's in Mac OS X quite fast these days, so it's hard to establish
a stable platform.
I'm looking into this from time to time, but it's hard for me to
maintain motivation long enough to get very far, since it's a lot of
code to wade through and I'm not a huge fan of wxWidgets :/
It would be awesome if you want to take a look at this though.
Three suggested action points:
o Establish a way of producing a working wxMac binary and document
this process somewhere visible for
other KiCad people.
o Establish a way of producing KiCad binaries in a way which makes it
trivial to try out a new version.
It seems you're almost there.
o Find & fix bugs. There is a bugtracker on SourceForge which can be
used to discuss and collect knowledge
Good luck :)
