You are right, the last Mac package was some testing version. So you will get a message that a newer version is available (which there is, just not a Mac package for it).

There are a couple of issues while running Pigeon Planner on Mac, as you will notice. Some of them which I can't fix and some which I haven't had time to fix. I'll see if I can build a new one and mark it as unstable, just for the people who really want it.

It's not that easy and very time consuming the first time. Python isn't the problem, but the graphical toolkit which is used, isn't really OS X friendly.

This is what I wrote down in README.dev in the Pigeon Planner package, but I'm not 100% sure if this is still valid.

Mac OS X:
    Build GTK from source, see http://www.gtk.org/download/macos.php
    Use mac/jhbuild-custom and mac/pigeonplanner.modules for a complete build.

    jhbuild shell
    python setup.py install
    gtk-mac-bundler mac/pigeonplanner.bundle

The mac/* files are located in the Pigeon Planner source package.

I'll have a look at it tonight anyway, hopefully I can produce a working dmg.

Here you go: https://sourceforge.net/projects/pigeonplanner/files/Unstable/
It should work on all Intel Macs with atleast OS X 10.6 installed.

Mandatory disclaimer:
This file is put in the unstable folder because it is really unstable. This is no joke. Expect crashes and weird behaviour.

No problem. I made some changes which will make it much easier for me to build these packages in the future, so there should be a Mac OS X package for each new Pigeon Planner release from now on.

I hope I can spend some time soon to try and fix the outstanding issues.

I have troubles with my Mac build machine and haven't been able to fix it yet. 2.2.0 should still work though, there were only 3 changes in 2.2.1:

 * Fixed exporting pigeons to csv
 * Fixed DTD resultparser for results with an extra column at the end
 * Make database backup before update and restore in case of error

New build is available here: https://sourceforge.net/projects/pigeonplanner/files/Unstable/

This is done on a new system, so please report any problems. The package only works on Mac OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion or newer probably.

Hallo Timo!
I work now with PP 2.2.3 on OSX El Capitan 10.11.6
There is an error in the date field in the individual results window: If you change the date, the program freezes.
Hope you can help. Sorry my bad english

I'll have a look at it this weekend. I only have a 10.8 Mountain Lion system around, but hopefully it doesn't matter.
