Toucan Version History

2.1.2 October 2014

Fixed showing images on different screens. And fixed that the cursor could stay hidden sometimes.

2.1.1 January 2014

Fixed compatibility with OS X 10.9 Mavericks. Some transitions were causing a crash on Mavericks, that is fixed now. Mavericks requires some additional setup, which was added in Toucan 2.1.1.

2.1 December 2013

In this update the display of images has been completely re-done. Toucan now uses a different more powerful graphics system, Core Animation. This allows Toucan to do more advanced stuff. Many more transition effects are possible now. And it clears the way for future improvements. Unfortunately the performance of Core Animation on older Macs is not good enough. So you need a fairly new Mac. PPC Mac's are not supported anymore for the same reason. More information about the new features in the Toucan Guide.

2.0.9 June 2013

2.0.8 April 2013

2.0.7 March 2013

2.0.6 March 2013

2.0.5 February 2013

2.0.4 October 2012

2.0.3 July 2012

2.0.2 May 28, 2012

Toucan 2.0 is a completely new application. No code from Toucan 1.5 was useable for a modern Mac OS X application. Work on Toucan 2.0 started a long time ago, but progress stalled until some loyal Toucan users found that it did not work on Lion. Development was resumed and the result is Toucan 2.0.2. Not all the features of Toucan 1.5 made it to Toucan 2, but development will continue. The goal was to have a usable Lion compatible version as soon as possible.

1.5 and earlier

These versions where made a long time ago, when Mac OS X was still new and many Mac users where still using Mac OS 9 or earlier. Toucan 1.5 is still available and works on Mac OS 9 and Mac OS X up to 1.6 Snow Leopard. It is a PowerPC application, thus its performance is not optimal on new Macs with Intel processors.
