How recent do you need?
4.9 might do, 4.8 definitely won’t work, 4.13 definitely will work.
Mac OS X "Leopard" has 4.8. MacPorts bumps that to 4.13,
but a lot of
people don't seem to like MacPorts.
I don't know about Snow Leopard. Still, the Mac people we have seem to be
very aggressive about being on the bleeding edge, and I doubt very many
are using Leopard any more.
I’m emphatically not very aggressive about being on the bleeding edge, and
am still using 10.4. (I use and value the bluetooth connection on my
machine, and at the point Leopard was released all the information I could
find said it would no longer work, but now I look again that may not be the
case; personal experience welcome.) But I have MacPorts.
Gentoo and Debian stable have 4.13.
So I guess I don't really have a problem with a more recent
requirement in 21.5, as long as Cygwin or MSYS (preferably MSYS, some
people don't like the Cygwin dependency, but I can live with requiring
that, I suppose) have that version available. If people really have a
problem, I can always start building info tarballs for the betas.
OK, absent any contradictions I’ll go ahead with it in a few days.
I'd like to hear from some of the other folks, though, especially
and the Solaris testers.
