MacOS G5 App 4.27 available
I've been working on the PPC code a bit more with what I learned from the coding for x86 and made a new version. I've seen it run about 20% faster than the previous 4.23 App on some machines.
However, applying all the measurements we need for copmpatibility of an "official App", this code slows down even behind the 4.23 App, at least on G5. So for now I made an App that maintains the maximum possible compatibility without loosing speed. It turned out to be a G5 App that should run on MacOS 10.4 as well as on 10.3. It is available from our Power User Apps page. I haven't seen a single invalid result from this code in internal tests.
I'll continue to investigate this level of "maximum useful compatibility" for G4 machines. For G3 I don't have any more ideas for speeding up the Apps anyway.
