Mac OS X Notes

Attention Mac OS X Users

The latest version of Sigil requires macOS 10.11 or higher. macOS upgrades are available for free directly from Apple.

Per the recommendation of www.python.org (see https://www.python.org/download/mac/tcltk/), due to bugs and the age of Apple's internal Tcl library, you should also download and install ActiveState's ActiveTcl Community Edition. To get the latest bug fixes, Sigil-0.x.x's embedded Python has been linked with the very latest version of Tcl 8.6.x.x

We may not redistribute this Package with Sigil due to ActiveState's binary non-redistribution policy.

So please, if you have not already done so download and install this version of ActiveState's Active Tcl Community Edition, until we get a chance to do our own build of Tcl from source for future releases. ActiveState is a primary contributor to www.python.org and a respected and trusted source for python and tcl/tk related binaries on both Windows and Mac OS X.

See: http://www.activestate.com/activetcl/downloads Version: 8.6.4.1 or later 8.6.X release

You can’t perform that action at this time.
