Hi. I'm an avid user of Voila and I'm writing to find out whether the current version will work under Lion, Apple's upcoming version of OS X that's expected to be available on July 14th.
If it's not compatible, can you tell me whether a Lion-compatible version will be a paid upgrade or not?
Thanks a lot.
Voila does not work with Lion
All you will get is a black screen,
We have been testing Voila with Lion and we have come across similar issues mentioned by you. These issues are faced by all similar applications. This is due to a few changes in the Lion OS.
Having said that, we have already identifies and have provided for fixes in the next update, which will be released in time for the new OS release. As of now we shall be giving it away as a free update, so that any of our friends who decide to migrate to Lion can still enjoy their copy of Voila!
Yes, Voila v3.0.4 is compatible with 10.5.8 and later, 10.6.x as well. So, in short, 10.5.8 or newer.
Lion compatible version 3.1 of Voila would be coming out soon; we are testing out the web version. Updated version would be released simultaneously on the Mac App Store and on our website as well.
We have tested Voila 3.1 in Lion, it works fine. Could you send me the console log to email@example.com. We will surely look into it.
I hope a solution is coming ......
The download that never ends... the wait continues...
Can I please have the OLDER version because the upgrade download destroyed my older version.
Thanks and can I have it ASAP
