New version is available, introducing three new maps, improved leaning, server browser and other improvements and bug fixes.

The biggest news is however that since this year we're now two people team, both dedicated to this game. This is a big boost to development of Resistance Force. BirthNight is audio/music guy primarily but fell love into mapping, modelling and many other things. This allows me to focus more on the game core and together making assets faster and better.

Most likely problem with OSX 10.8. There is some problem between Java7 and LWJGL (library used for OpenGL/AL access). Also it might be case you have no Java installed. Gatekeeper can be also in the way.

These issues should be fixed in the future by 3rd party and Java would be bundled with the game as it's done on other platforms (not possible previously because of licensing problem).

As of Gatekeeper, there is high chance that in future it won't be possible to disable it (Apple is heading into more and more closed platform). In such case we'll stop supporting OSX, except maybe jailbroken one.

That depends solely on what Apple will do in future. Otherwise I'm fan of crossplatform apps and games. I'm not fan of closed systems though, so as long as OSX will remain open platform we'll support it. And even if it's stops being one, there is high chance we'll continue supporting jailbroken versions at least as it's quite easy to support multiple platforms for us.

Currently the default setting in 10.8 is to disallow running unsigned apps, so users need to bypass it by either opening it by context menu or disabling Gatekeeper. I haven't yet tested RF on 10.8 so I don't know how exactly it behaves (except for the known incompatibility with Java7 that's being addressed by 3rd party).
