Building Voreen on Mac OS

Mac OS is currently not an active development plattform. Since our development is cross plattform a compilation from source is possible, but you may encounter some difficulties. You may also experience problems at runtime.

Voreen 5.0 provides a core profile mode which resolves the problem of prior Voreen versions which rely on the OpenGL compatibility profile that is not supported on Mac OS. However, Apple recently anounced to drop OpenGL and OpenCL support entirely in Mac OS at some point in the future. We will thus continue not to target Mac OS as a development platform and cannot give any support when trying to use Voreen on Mac OS.
