Google Earth Beta 2 – Mac OSX 10.3.9 Supported

Google released a new beta for the Mac OSX which now supports OSX 10.3.9 as well so many more Mac users can now use this fantastic application. Here’s the announcement at the Google Earth Community (GEC) which includes the differences between this beta and the last. Google was kind enough to recognize the considerable help it received from GEC members. MacWorld has already written a review of the new release as well. If you have any issues with the new release go to the GEC forum for GE Mac OSX Support.
To get the new Mac Beta you can go to earth.google.com. If you are already using the first beta, simply select the “Check for Updates” option in the “Help” menu.
[EDIT: 9:40 PM - By the way, reports are that beta 2 runs on the Intel Mac as well.]

  1. It’s a great thing that GE works with Mac, but I don’t have a 10.3.9, I have a 10.2.8, so when can I expect a version compatible with my OS?

  5. Lord Niku – when you upgrade your computer and move to a newer version of OS X. As far as I know Google has no plans to go to an earlier version of OS X, Linux, or Windows.

    I downloaded Beta GoogleEarth 4.2 that is supposed to work with 10.3.9 iMac and it still wouldn’t function, rejected immediately as soon as I opened it after the downloading completed. What is going on here?

  7. Stephen Deutsch says:

    Recently upgraded to a Power Mac (Intel). Google Earth freezes when tip for day automatically launches (and cannot be put away).
