Two major announcements for fans of RootsMagic – one, as has been mentioned/hinted at in the past, the folks behind RootsMagic are working on an OS X-native version of RootsMagic, the popular Windows genealogy program.
The other major announcement, one that concerns the here and now, is that they have released MacBridge for RootsMagic, a utility that allows you to run the Windows version of RootsMagic 6 on top of OS X without the need for a virtual machine (such as Parallels Desktop or VMWare Fusion) or a WINE or CrossOver environment/layer. It does use the native filesystem of your Mac. It’s on sale for $9.95 (normally $14.95).
This is welcome news for those RootsMagic fans who are wanting to switch to Macs, and who don’t want to go through a full install of Windows, or deal with compatibility layers/emulators.
Below is the press release:
