Dear Firefly for Mac Users:

An updated set of drag and drop run applications is now posted (please see link below):

http://classic.chem.msu.su/gran/gamess/macosx/RUN-FIREFLY-JOBS-08-14-2011.zip

A quick summary of the changes for these applications are below:

* Added compatibility for Sandy Bridge architectures on both Snow Leopard and Lion OS.

* New Drag and Drop Run Applications no longer perform error checking that the users does not select more cores for a job than are physically present on their machine.  This was done, in part, to simplify compatibility with new hardware architectures moving forward.

* Drag and Drop applications now support running jobs on up to 16 cores (selectable for 1, 2, 4, 6, 8, 12 and 16 cores).

The new drag and drop run application should work on Leopard, Snow Leopard and Lion OS and are compatible with the Firefly for Mac 7.1.G release.  Although they have been reasonably well tested, if there should be any questions or concerns please post them here on this thread so that we can resolve any bugs prior to the use these new run applications as part of the Firefly for Mac 8.0.0 release.
