NoMachine Extends Client Support to Lion
2011-11-18 by: Sarah Dryell

Mac OS X 10.7 users continue to get remote access to their Linux servers using NX Player, the replacement to NX Client

Rome, Italy, Nov 17, 2011 - NoMachine, award-winning provider of virtual desktop and application delivery software, has extended its multi-platform solution to the latest Mac OS X 10.7, also known as Lion. NoMachine is aware that from the release of Mac OS X 10.7 (Lion), Apple will no longer support the PowerPC emulator, Rosetta. As users of NX Client for Mac will know, 3.5.0 and earlier has been natively compiled for PPC and requires the Rosetta translator to be present on the OS X device. Consequently, NX Client will not function on Lion installations.

With the approaching release of NX 4, the new client, namely NX Player, is natively built for Mac Intel and therefore will work without Rosetta support. Although NX Player requires an NX 4 server in order to take advantage of all the new functionalities, it maintains backward compatibility and can be used to connect to NX 3.x servers. Users of Lion and NX Client 3.5.0, or earlier versions, must install NX Player in order to connect to their remote NX server.

A Preview version of NX Player 4 for Mac OS X is already available in the download section. Note that this is not a final version and might still be affected by some minor issues. The new NX Player will allow Mac users who have already upgraded to Apple’s Mac OS X Lion to continue to remotely access all their documents and applications on their NX servers.

NoMachine invites all its customers and users who have any questions about using NX Player Preview with Lion to contact us. Whilst NoMachine is committed to fixing problems in as short time as possible, users should check our website from to time to get updates about the latest version of NX Player.
