Source Forge, a site that hosts and discusses open-source code and applications, has recently announced that the Open Source Development Network (ODSN) has added PowerMac G4 servers with OS X 10.1 to the SourceForge.net Compile Farm. This will allow programmers to test any applications made for OS X through the development site.
Here's a clip from the article:
Mac OS X v10.1 has the performance and polish that developers can tap for next-generation applications," said Ron Okamoto, Apple's vice president of Worldwide Developer Relations. "With SourceForge.net, the Open Source community has a world-class environment where developers can test their creativity and put Mac OS X through its paces. The Open Source community is very important to Apple, and SourceForge.net is key to helping that relationship grow.While not specifically game related, this is great news, as open source code has often encouraged many past developers in making various programs, including games. It looks like OS X's UNIX base is starting to pay off.
