Bio7 1.5 MacOSX Update

I detected some issues with the MacOSX release and uploaded a new version with a new configuration file (Bio7.ini – the only change). With this new configuration file of the application the errors didn’t occur anymore (some deadlocks when opening 3d perspectives etc.). For those who already downloaded Bio7 1.5 for Mac: Simply open the Bio7.ini file (see previous post) and exchange the attributes with the following text:

-startup
../../../plugins/org.eclipse.equinox.launcher_1.2.0.v20110502.jar
–launcher.library
../../../plugins/org.eclipse.equinox.launcher.cocoa.macosx.x86_64_1.1.100.v20110502
-vmargs
-XstartOnFirstThread
-Dorg.eclipse.swt.internal.carbon.smallFonts
-Dosgi.requiredJavaVersion=1.6
-XX:MaxPermSize=256m
-XX: +UseCompressedOops
-Xms40m
-Xmx1048m

Please adjust the the initial heap size -Xms and the maximum heap space -Xmx for your needs. As a default value for the maximum memory Bio7 (java) can use on MacOSX 1024m of the OS RAM.
