Mac OS GUI version listed on

Posted on Wednesday 26 March 2008

The Mac OS X GUI version of the simulator was recently listed on Apple’s software download page for Unix and Open Source applications available for Mac OS, a link to which is built into every Mac. Not surprisingly, there were almost a hundred downloads of the packaged GUI in the first few days. Not bad for an academic research tool.
