#6133 closed task (fixed)

Propose dropping any support for pre mac osx (10)

Reported by: Kurt Schwehr Owned by: warmerdam
Priority: normal Milestone:
Component: ConfigBuild Version: svn-trunk
Severity: normal Keywords: legacy


I would be very surprised if MacOS 9 or older has built for a long time.

If there are no ojections, I'll remove the macintosh and macos_pre10 defines but leave the _WIN32_WCE

find . -name "*.[ch]*" | xargs egrep 'macos_pre10|macintosh' | egrep -v 'libpng|margin'
./port/cpl_port.h:/*      We will use macos_pre10 to indicate compilation with MacOS      */
./port/cpl_port.h:#ifdef macintosh
./port/cpl_port.h:#  define macos_pre10
./port/cpl_port.h:#ifdef macos_pre10
./port/cpl_vsi.h:#if !defined(macos_pre10) && !defined(_WIN32_WCE)

let's drop macos 9 support.

Windows CE is no longer maintained toi. not sure if it is worth keeping the specialized code paths

r30731 removes macos 9 and older support.

I'll keep the bug open for anyone who wants to weigh in with support for WinCE.

Resolution: fixed
Status: newclosed

Nobody reads tickets... Let's close this one. You could bring the subject on gdal-dev if you want. There's no longer any Windows CE maintainer.

Removed WinCE from trunk: r30912 r30910 r30909 r30902 r30901 r30900

Windows CE code remains in 3rd party code e.g. libpng, libjson, etc

Remove WinCE links dangling in the front-page translations (r31013)
