I have had Frontier 9.5 + Manila running websites over the past 10 years or so without a hitch. Its currently running on a MacMini server under OS X 10.4 (Tiger). I should have upgraded it ages ago, but it still 'just works'! Compatibility with newer OS X versions has been an issue holding me back:  I maintain it via WebEdit using OPML editor on my more modern 'client' Macs but I haven't tried using OPML Editor ar a replacement server.

I have just acquired a 2011 MacMini with Yosemite loaded which I'd like to configure as a replacement for my current server. In Scripting News, Davie Winer mentions a 'heroic port by Ted Howard' on his new 5K iMac, which I guess is running Yosemite. If this is indeed compatible would it be possible to obtain a copy. Or would I be better off using Jake Savin's latest Manila updates with OPML Editor?

Any help or comments would be much appreciated.

Hi Chris...

You can download the new version here.

Note that the OPML Editor is a Frontier distribution, so there's no either/or. When you run OPML, you're running Frontier.

And I would definitely recommend using Jake's new Manila. It will help to keep it alive if more people use the latest stuff.

I also linked to this thread from the post, in case anyone follows you here. I wish we could get the word out to all people who are still running Frontier.
