SimulIde 0.3.12 Windows 64 and MacOS versions

Hi guys.

There are new builds available for donwload


- Windows 64 bits.
  Need some testing. Any feedback will be very appreciated!


- MacOs port, done by Prof. Benoit ZERR (ENSTA Bretagne).

  Tested on Mac OS 10.15 Catalina and Mac OS 10.13 High Sierra.
  For the details on Mac OS X port, you can have a look here
  A Mac OS simulide.app and an installation movie can be found here

  It will be OK for all MacOS users having QT Installed.

  For those not having QT installed an additionnal step should be done by running
  $ macdeployqt simulided.app
  This will create two addtionnal folders in simulide.app/Contents , PlugIns and  Frameworks

  Then the whole folder simulide.app can be moved to /Applications


Best place for feedback or problem reports is our Forum.


Regards.
