  1. Currently it can work on Macintosh in VirtualBox, that is a virtual computer in which we can install Linux and run it in a window. We have several customers who use it this way.
    We are also planning to port the program to Mac version, but I can not give you a fixed release date. Please join Arahne group on Linkedin to get more information about running this software on Mac.

  2. Demo version for Macintosh using VirtualBox is now available for download from Arahne's web site.
