This page contains information about the most recent builds (development and stable branches) of AlphaX.
The stable releases are usually announced on the AlphaTcl-users list (you can subscribe here ).
The last official release of AlphaX is version 8.2.3. Download the disk image here:
AlphaX-8.2.3.dmg (16.8M)Once it is downloaded, double-click on the icon of the disk image. A window containing the application will open. Then drag the AlphaX application to the Applications folder (or anywhere you like on your machine).
Under Mac OS X 10.9 (Mavericks), you need at least version 8.2.2 of AlphaX.
You may see the following message when launching this new version for the first time under Mavericks : "AlphaX can't be opened because it is from an unidentified developer". This is due to the fact that AlphaX is not (yet) a signed application. Here are instructions to bypass the Security & Privacy System preference which is responsible for this message: how-to-open-applications-from-unidentified-developers (instructions are given for Mountain Lion but they apply just the same to Mavericks).
All the development effort is now dedicated to AlphaCocoa which is a reimplementation from scratch of Alpha. It is written in Objective C and based on the Mac OS X Cocoa framework. The AlphaCocoa project is hosted on SourceForge.
TclapplescriptHere is a compiled binary of the Tclapplescript extension version 2.1 which can be used in AlphaX on Yosemite systems (Mac OS X 10.10). Download and unzip the archive, then copy it inside the AlphaX application bundle in AlphaX.app/Contents/Resources/Scripts/Tclextensions.
This fixes the issue reported with the version 1.0 where loading the extension resulted in an error message "Error: Error opening component".
