Can we make RDi RPG/COBOL development tools available for MAC OSX? I understand that in the past the delay was due to the lack of verifier routines to run on OSX, but even a version without these would allow Mac users to use the tool to gain business benefit and develop for the platform.
Most developers I know do not use the RDi verify feature, as they work in a connected state using the remote LPEX editor, and submit compiles to check their source validity.
The loss of the verify routines would not unduly affect the ability to use RDi, but now ACS runs on Mac it seems important to also have the development tools we need, that support the latest version of RPG, also available. SEU is increasingly less fit for purpose on modern versions of IBM i as it throws out to many errors for newer language features, therefore a Mac version of RDi is increasingly important.
