Qt 4.6 is just around the corner, and Nokia has been touting performance improvements as one major development goal for this new version. Maybe that means better Mac performance... we'll see.

EDIT: Correction, Qt 4.6 has been released TODAY.

EDIT2: Qt now officially supports Snow Leopard. Hell yeah.

Sigil v0.1.6 should now take a bit longer, since I need to make sure everything works with the new version.

That's exactly what Sigil v0.2.0 is slated to bring. Instead of loading all XHTML files into one big flow, they will be kept separate. You will be able to select which XHTML file you want to load and edit. Should do wonders for performance on all platforms, Mac included. Hitting the "chapter break" button will split the file into two at that point.

This should all work a lot like the Solution Explorer in Visual Studio.

You can track this issue here.
