Well, as the web page says, please be patient. I am starting to wonder when the 0.6 version will be coming to the mac. I have patience but please! :?

Well, there is no developer building for 06 yet, ergo nothing official.

However, I have been making OSX builds since September 2014. You can try one of my builds. My development platform is Mavericks using QT 4.8.5, 64 bit. No plugins. There may be minor issues dealing with idling and/or minimization that may have been solved already..

Temporarily you can pick up these builds outside my RetroShare Channel here:

http://107.150.3.74/fun/RetroShare06-RC2.dmg This is as close to RC2(8551) as possible.

http://107.150.3.74/fun/RetroShare06-8673.dmg Bleeding edge as of 8/14/15.

Note this is also a major 06 chatserver site accessible at http://retroshare.rocks

That's great! Thanks. I installed your 8/14/15 build and everything seems okay. I noticed that the 0.6 version is quite different form 0.5. I tried to add the chat server chatasaurus and copyleft. Do you add them as a friend the same way as under 0.5? It seems after adding them that they do not show up in the chat lobbies. I must be doing something wrong or does it take time for the servers to validate my key? I don't know.

Thanks.

Chatasaurus had a rare crash as you added the key. sorry. restarted. as far as CopyLeft I have no idea.

additional note: if you aded the key incorrectly, keep in mind there is no error-checking at alll at the web level. it wont tell you if the key was added successfully to the chatserver.

hi

here is a preview of the website:
https://cavebeat.github.io/retroshare.g ... s.html#mac

you can also download a MacOSX binary here https://github.com/RetroShare/RetroShar ... v0.6.0-RC2
(its jensters build, so he maybe provides newer stuff directly)

in the future you can check the github releases.

best regards

Everything works well...BUT how the heck do I join the chat servers? I enter them manually but I always get the error.

"We successfully reached your Friend.
but they have not added you as a Friend.

Please contact them to add your Certificate

Your Retroshare Node is configured Okay"

Any help would be appreciated. Here's my key anyway:

Yes. The same error comes up when trying to connect to Copyleft, Chatasaurus and PirateParty. :(

You are not giving the chatserver the correct key. Go to options -> node -> certificate. This is what you must give to the chatservers, and your new friends.

When at the website interface to subscribe to the chat server it asks for my "key". I followed your instructions and pasted my certificate instead.

I receive the following error:

"We successfully reached your Friend.
but they have not added you as a Friend.

Please contact them to add your Certificate

Any help would be appreciated. :(
