Download WeaveMaker MI 9.2.1 for OS X
Corrects the problem of the Warp Actions triangle in the Tools window being disabled. See this page of the manual if you are unsure of what the "actions" triangle looks like and does.
Corrects a discrepancy between the user's manual and the software for Algebraic input. The manual says that an incomplete entry (where the algebraic input specifies fewer ends or picks than are contained in the design) is repeated to fill up the warp or weft, but the software didn't do that. Now it does.
Improves several error messages in Algebraic input mode to provide more and better explanations, rather than just saying there's incorrect input. Also fixes the display of the count of ends or picks specified by the current input.
Corrects the confusing and incorrect double appearance of the word "Denting" in the View menu. The second appearance should actually be "Stop Motion" and now so reads.
Fixes the incorrect coloring of the Fabric Swatch in printouts.

Download WeaveMaker MI 8.4.2 for OS X (for 10.3 and earlier) [7-20-05]

Download WeaveMaker MI 8.3.7 for OS X [10-18-04]
Fixes a problem with Algebraic Treadling. When going into Algebraic Treadling, the expression that appeared didn't correctly represent the existing treadling. Now, the expression you see is correct for the existing treadling.
Download WeaveMaker MI 8.3.6 for OS X [8-25-04]
Fixes a problem with printing of the wool simulation. Removes the restriction of only installing on Mac OS X 10.2 or higher; this version will install on any Mac OS X.
Download WeaveMaker MI 8.3.5 for OS X [8-18-04]
Adds "Wool Simulation" to the print options when printing a fabric swatch. Fixes several bugs in the Macomber driver, including one involving the keyboard up and down arrows. Adds a Dobbytron loom driver.
Download WeaveMaker MI 8.3.4 for OS X [5-19-04]
Fixes a bug in the AVL CompuDobby-III driver. If you design in WeaveMaker with fewer harnesses than you have physically in the loom, you won't get the extra harnesses lifting. For example, if you have a 16 harness loom but set WeaveMaker to just 4 harnesses, prior to this version, when you wove, harnesses 5-16 would always lift.
Download WeaveMaker MI 8.3.2 for OS X [4-2-04]
Fixes a nasty bug involving Save As. The symptoms vary. But either during Save As, or the next time you try to save a file, WeaveMaker crashes. This version also has improved handling of dobby weaving. Prior to this version, when you exited weaving mode, the harnesses on your loom would not necessarily drop to rest position. That's now fixed.
Download WeaveMaker MI 8.3.1 for OS X [2-2-04]
Fixes the "knfw-susp" bug, which causes an occasional crash in WeaveMaker, displaying the text "knfw-susp". If you experience this crash, please upgrade to this version.
Download WeaveMaker MI 8.3 for OS X [10-18-03]
Changes the way the fabric window is displayed. Prior to this version, you only saw one repeat. Now, the design is repeated as needed to fill the window. Also, corrects a bug in which the fabric simulation menu doesn't get checkmarks on the selected items.
Download WeaveMaker MI 8.2.7 for OS X [10-4-03]
Fixes a bug that permits you to save two different designs under a single file name. Here is an example of the bug (that's now fixed): Launch WeaveMaker, then create two new designs, not by opening a saved design, but by using "New" in the File menu. Save one of the designs, calling it "A" (for example). Now, save the second design, and also name it "A". WeaveMaker lets you get away with this, which it shouldn't. You now have two different designs which are being saved into the same file. This is very bad! The next time you try to save, WeaveMaker will crash. 8.2.7 fixes this bug.
Download WeaveMaker MI 8.2.6 for OS X [10-3-03]
Fixes a large number of menu items that are incorrectly grayed out when designing with more than 32 harnesses.
Download WeaveMaker MI 8.2.3 for OS X [8-25-03]

Download WeaveMaker MI 8.2.1 for OS X [6-24-03]
Fixes an error in reading and writing to a pattern cartridge for the AVL Compu-Dobby Type II. Fixes an error in Print Setup which sometimes caused it not to appear.
Download WeaveMaker MI 8.2 for OS X [6-12-03]
Gives "mouseover help" (the little yellow explanations) for OS X; this feature wasn't fully ported to Mac OS X in version 8.0 and 8.1, but now it's fully available. The registration keys are once again consistent between the Mac and Windows versions (in 8.0 and 8.1 for the Mac, the registration key was unique to the Mac).
Download WeaveMaker MI 8.1.2 for OS X [5-14-03]
Fixes a bug that prevents some users from getting the 30-day demo. If you have an earlier version and you can't register the software when you type "Demo" in the name or key fields, switch to this version.
Download WeaveMaker MI 8.1.1 for OS X [4-29-03]
Adds support for the Louet Octado dobby loom, and has changes in the Dobby Type menu to make it clearer that WeaveMaker also handles the Magic (24 harness) and Megado (16/32 harness) looms from Louet. Also, fixes a bug in "Save As" and in opening WIF files.
