Beyond Compare 4.0 beta is now available for testing on Windows, Linux, and OS X.
This version adds a number of new features:
- OS X support
- An improved user interface
A new major release of Beyond Compare. I'm genuinely excited.
I know you use VCL for the Windows version and CLX for the Linux version so to support OSX you were always going to have to write a new GUI at the very least. What platform/framework did you end up going with?

As Kevin mentioned, we used Free Pascal 2.6 and Lazarus 1.2 with the
Carbon backend. We expanded our existing VCL/CLX compatibility layer,
so it's still all a single source and a single set of DFMs, with design
work and core development all done in Delphi XE.
Looks nice and running under OS X it looks the goods as well. You
should consider making the compatibility layer available (ie. sell it)
for others because this makes FireMonkey look embarassing. Very nice
