Apple make impossible to develop outside having a Mac.

They don't allow even virtual machines on other than mac hardware and
other versions of hackintosh are pain to install or use.

Can't do anything about this.

In fact, I believe that a native build of digiKam for Mac OS X could be a huge success, since there is no alternative to digiKam as a serious photo management software under Mac OS X. iPhoto, as I said, is just a nice toy, and the test reports about the new Fotos for OS X app do not sound as if it was worth while to spend 80 Euro for that.

Two days ago, I installed the new digiKam version (4.8.0) from macports, and, apart from a few difficulties with missing libraries during the installation, which I had to install separately, nearly everything I tested worked quite well. Only the import from camera did not work at all. My OS X version is 10.10.2.
