ATIK OSX Test Application & Alpha3 drivers here!
      #5678749 - 02/14/13 03:33 AM

These are the latest alpha 3 drivers released today. My focus on this release has been to finish the test example application and focus resolving some fixing some bugs in the driver.

For non-developers there's now a test application that you can run that allows you to try your ATIK camera on your mac! It allows you to take images, set/see the temperature, select filters and more - including easier support setup for the 16IC. I'll create a youtube video guide shortly along with a desktop PC application for easily reading the FTDI id.

Get the test application & drivers (all larger than the CN limits unfortunately): ATIK OSX Test Application & Alpha3 drivers available here! (SGL link)

Note the application is not digitally signed, this means that OSX will complain if you have not allowed applications from non-mac app store. Go to System Preferences > Security & Privacy and on the General Tab select the "Anywhere" option from the "Allow applications downloaded from" section - you will need to unlock using the padlock to change this.

For developers, I've put together the Alpha3 drivers used in the test app along with an updated development guide.
