MCS applications and utilities for Mac AY2016-2017

Over the summer of 2016 various items of Macintosh software were added, upgraded or withdrawn. Access to MCS Macintosh is most convenient using the Apple menu item provided. Applications are listed below under their category type.

MCS Macs run under Mac OS X 10.11

All applications are available at all University sites, and where possible, at all other cluster sites. Some applications are limited by licensing issues, and these are indicated by the notes below.

Additionally at the time of writing, a few new applications or upgraped version may not yet be available; this is indicated below by the abbreviation NYA in the Comments column and applies, in a few cases, where technical difficulties remain or master licensing arrangments are not complete.
