James - Welcome to the forums. Why do you think Logos is not compatible? Are you using a developers copy? Can you be more specific?

Just finished installing myself and can confirm Logos crashes on startup.  Hope there is a fix so we don't have to uninstall Mountain Lion.

10.8 is considered a "pre-developers copy."

The Developer Preview was only released today, so (until now) our developers haven't had the opportunity to investigate and fix compatibility issues.

We will post an announcement when a version of Logos 4 that is compatible with OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion is available. (Again, since the Developer Preview only came out today, we don't have an estimate for when an updated version of Logos 4 will be available, but it's likely to be close to (but before) the official release of 10.8 this summer.)

James - This is similar to what happened with Lion last year.

Bradley - I hope we will see some more Lion features implemented at that point (hint, hint). Smile

I'm downloading Mountain Lion now. It may be too soon to answer this question, but when you say you "will post an announcement when a version of Logos that is compatible with OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion is available," do you know if that will be a regular build, a beta build or something different? Just curious.

The developers are obviously just getting a peek at the software now, as you are (insert Napoleon Dynamite "Lucky!"). If I remember correctly, a service release came out last year just in time for the release of Lion. I assume that the SR went through the same beta process of other releases, and would anticipate the same with this future SR.

I went ahead with the install. It's true that Logos 4 won't run. So far, though, every other program works fine. If Logos waits until until a "just in time" window like you describe above, I guess that means about four or more months without Logos for me.

Rick, while I understand the annoying-ness of Logos being the anomaly, can't you just roll it back to your previous install or is there a pressing need for  Mountain Lion?

Paul, I'm not certain I can roll it back or not. Certainly, I could simply reinstall Lion, but I would bet that I probably couldn't keep my user folder and settings intact. 

Unless I run into major problems, I'll probably just press forward. Apple invited me to participate in the beta through the Appleseed program, so I figured why not?

I have confirm installation of MAC OS is possible using Virtual Box, so as long as you have the space installing a copy of the old os and putting logos in it should't be an issue. I have not tested Logos under it because it is just installing but then again i just wanted to see if virtual box would do it, I did know my parallels would do it but VB is free. So no need to go back just take a little time to have a second OS X system on you machine.

That's a good idea, Dan. I bet I could do it in VMWare, which I have loaded. Or I could simply load Logos in the Win 7 install I have in VMWare until the Mac version is working again.

After I read an article tonight, I wondered the same thing. Inquiring minds want to know.

No, Gatekeeper really only affects installation of programs. Regardless, I've got my security settings set to allow anything from any source to install.

Like most new features, this will very likely be released first as part of a beta (for testing), then make its way into a regular build.

As a practical matter don't be too surprised if this takes awhile, due to the dependence on mono. Besides, there isn't all that much time between the dp and general release.

While I'd like a quick patch as much as anyone and was also disappointed that logos has been the only incompatibility I've run into (so far), being realistic anyone who is running 10.8 and needs logos probably should plan on running lion in a vm or re-installing lion. Not sure which I'll do yet. C'est la vie.

I agree and more! C'mon it is totally unrealistic to expect to get a pre-release copy of an OS and then plonk something like L4M on it with the expectation that it will be a guaranteed work.

Apple says... don't put on production machines.

Also I would be a bit annoyed if Logos siphoned off resources chasing a moving target like getting L4M to work on work in progress pre-release Mountain Lion.

Having said all that, of course Logos will/should be looking into compatibility with new OS - but it's not summer yet! So why is this question being posted in the first place.

Apple released Mountain Lion to developers precisely so that they could start working to ensure compatibility. There's every reason to believe that Logos will have their software running in Mountain Lion well before it actually ships, and no reason why users shouldn't be kept posted on their progress.
