Quick update on the opening in the same tab problem: in the source code, where it says "target=_blank", if you replace "_blank" with "_self" then the linked page opens in the same window, like a normal link.

(Still have not found answers to any of the other problems, if people have insights -- I'm going to go post about the rapid prototyping tool problem in the bugs forum.)

EDIT/UPDATE: Answer to my question is YES (https://vue-forums.uit.tufts.edu/posts/list/1393.page).

Does anyone know if this latest version of VUE (3.2.2) is compatible with Mac OS X 10.10 (Yosemite)? Looking to upgrade to that version soon, and I hope that I won't lose VUE in the process. The experience of one other Yosemite user here (https://vue-forums.uit.tufts.edu/posts/list/1384.page) doesn't look promising. Or is this user just having a Java update issue?

I use VUE regularly with Yosemite, Apple changed the way Java works a bit. You may need to install this package, usually if you're upgrading you may not need to or some other software packages may install it automatically but if you have a problem where VUE wont' run under 10.10 just install this:

Is VUE compatible with Mac OSX 10.11 "El Capitan"? Thanks.

No, I've started looking at that today (VUE On El Cap). I have a workaround which sucks, and I'm trying to figure out the permanent solution for it. I should say VUE works fine, but the AppBundler the makes VUE a native application on mac is whats broken.

If you've gone to El Cap and need to use VUE, you need to install the Mac Java 6 compatibility package (as you did in 10.10)

https://support.apple.com/kb/DL1572?locale=en_US

You than need to open a Terminal window, using Applications/Utilities/Terminal

and set Java 6 as your active java:

export JAVA_HOME=$(/usr/libexec/java_home -v 1.6)

finally, you need to execute the VUE code package inside the bundler from the Terminal:

java -jar /Applications/VUE.app/Contents/VUE.jar

Mike,

Thanks for looking into this.

I'm not on El Capitan yet, so can't test out your solution. But once I follow those steps, should VUE run fine? I wasn't clear on what part of the work around "sucks": just all of those steps you have to do, or VUE performance as well. If I just need to follow the steps and then VUE will work fine, I'm ok with that. If, on the other hand, VUE performance is compromised in El Capitan, then I'll wait to upgrade until a compatible version of VUE is released.

"sucks" = all of the steps.
