Mini vMac 3.0.4 is now officially released (with no change from the final beta, as usual).

Version 3.0.4 | Release Date: 2007-11-09 | Download

There is now a Mini vMac 3.0.4 beta, which fixes a bug in the PowerPC Macintosh OS X version that made previous versions incompatible with Leopard. It changes only 10 bytes of code from 3.0.3, so I'm optimistic it won't introduce further problems. The same fix is in the PowerPC version for Macintosh OS 9 and earlier. There is no change in the Intel Macintosh OS X version from 3.0.3, or the versions for other operating systems, other than to change the version number.

I've also updated to 3.0.4 the '-im 1' version of Mini vMac with David Sibley's icons installed.

Version 3.0.3 | Release Date: 2007-09-06 | Download

There is now a Mini vMac 3.0.3 beta. Beta means no new features will be added before the official release, which will hopefully be soon. Many more features could be added, but it has been too long since the last official release.

There aren't too many changes in the default compile since the last alpha. The main one being that by default, the Macintosh versions of Mini vMac will not claim ownership to disk image and ROM image files. So double clicking on disk images will not launch Mini vMac. This is because when you have lots of copies of Mini vMac around, all of which claim ownership of disk images, it is unpredictable what happens when you double click on one, making the feature useless. Instead there is a compile time option, -im 1, to make Mini vMac claim ownership as has been done previously. You can then make sure to have only one copy of Mini vMac compiled this way on your computer...

Most of what is new in Mini vMac 3.0.3 are compile time options, such as -bg, -speed, -no-asm, and -min-extn.
