Sigil 3.2 & Macintosh

QUESTION: Does Sigil for Macintosh version 3.2 run only on Intel based Macs or will it run on PowerPCs running MacOS 10.5 and higher?

BACKGROUND: My older Mac PowerPC G5 runs well on MacOS 10.4.11. I use Sigil 2.4 and I am happy with it. (I am envious of 3.2 users, but I can live with that.)

This past week, Apple sent me an email saying that their next release of iTunes Producer ( publisher's software for uploading media to iTunes) will not run on OS 10.4.11 and I needed to upgrade to 10.5.

After some hassle finding a copy of 10.5 (Apple no longer sells it) I will install it soon and begin checking all my software for compatibility. I am hoping, as a benefit for this hassle, that I can now run Sigil 3.2 on my Mac. Hence my initial question.

Thanks. - Fabe

I can remember reading this before. If I remember correctly Valloric had very good reasons that PowerPC is no longer supported.

Suggestions as to where I can get a copy of the earlier Sigil that will run on a PowerPC Mac with OSX10.5.8 would be most welcome. Current version is Intel only.

you can change the search pulldown on the Sigil site to say all and then Search (no term) and see allof the available.
3.0 is the last 'Universal' I spotted. http://code.google.com/p/sigil/downl...e.dmg&can=1&q=
