Snow Leopard

Does the latest Mac version of FogBugz work under Snow Leopard Server? I see 10.5 listed, but not 10.6. I understand 7 will work on 10.4 or later (implies 10.6), but 7 isn't available for the Mac yet.

I'd like to know the answer to this as well please.

We have not tested 6.1.46 against Snow Leopard.  We will likely not do so in the near future as we're primarily concerned with getting 7 for Mac/Linux out the door.  That said, since we're running on PHP and Apache, I don't see any reason why it wouldn't run.

I seem to recall there is (or was) a binary component to FogBugz. Is that no longer the case in 6? I am trying to decide what to do about upgrading. We have an older installation running on some Linux variant, and I would like to move that over to a new Mac OS X Snow Leopard server. However, I don't want to commit to that transition (up+crossgrade) if I don't have a decent chance of success. Is there an ETA for 7?

I've spent some time trying to get FB 6.1.46 ready for a OSX 10.6.1 server, and the problem I've hit is getting mono up. Installing mono via port or svn fails to compile. This may not be a FB issue per se but it's a dealbreaker none the less.

See, A few workarounds are described, but nothing works for me yet.

I don't know about FogBugz 6, but I can confirm that we've been testing FogBugz 7 on Snow Leopard and it works fine so far.

OK, so just to be clear, there is no version of FogBugz for the current version of Mac OS X, therefore FB cannot be installed on a newly purchased Mac server (since all new machines ship with 10.6). The current version of FB for Mac has not been officially tested, but informal attempts to install it have failed (or at least met with problems) and the upcoming version is still (obviously) upcoming, but with no ETA.

I have to say, I find this a little disappointing. The ability to run on a variety of servers and switch them around if need be was a big selling point for FB. It also seems to run counter to current claims of FogCreek software. It seems like this information should be made a little clearer (i.e., mentioned) on your website. Obviously, our FB purchase predates 10.6, but it would have been nice to know before committing to a hardware purchase that we would not be able to migrate all our services to the new machine.
