Update: OIV and Mac OSX Lion

Mac OSX LionUsers of Mac OSX Lion and ARTstor’s Offline Image Viewer (OIV) have been out of luck so far this semester (read my previous post here), but a solution finally appears to be on the horizon. ARTstor is currently testing a new version of OIV that will be compatible with Lion, and expects to release it within the next week.

Keep an eye on VRC@UD for more information!

UPDATE, November 23, 2011: OIV for Lion has arrived! To download it, you first need to log into your ARTstor account. In the navigation bar at the top of the main ARTstor search page, click on Tools and select “Download offline presentation tool (OIV).” Make sure to click the radio button next to “OIV 3.1.2 for Mac (Java 6.x; Mac OSX 10.7)” before downloading.
