Thanks Darren McDonald

I have tried to download the zip file from his site.
But it seems that the Mac OS X executable FET file is still version 5.27.8 (the same version released last year by yush)

Thanks for catching this LSimon!

The correct version should now be included—can you check now to see that you're getting 5.30.2 from the site? (Let me know if there's still a problem.)

Big thanks!

The version now is 5.30.2 . 

It worked smoothly.

This is the Mac OS excuteable version I have waited for almost a year   :) :)

No problem, and sorry about the mixup!  :)

(When creating the folder for the upload I had both the new version and the old version open to make sure I was distributing the same set of files, and I must have accidentally copied across the app from the wrong folder.)

Again, thanks for catching that!

I often compiled myself FET source for MacOS but the result app lacks the translation folder. So you need to open the package and place under fet.app/Contents/MacOS
The zip package published also lacks this functionality. For the next version, please, include this change so anyone don't need to make it.

Thank you for the suggestion—I was thinking about doing this when I next compile FET, and given that there's some interest I will do this for the next release.  :)

You could do that with FET-5.30.3: make a new release, with the name fet-5.30.3-1 or fet-5.30.3-2 (as you prefer). But you can also wait for FET-5.30.4 or FET-5.31.0.

Done—version 5.30.3-1 is now available for download and has the language files already in place (and removes the now redundant translations folder).

Version 5.30.5 doesn't work on Mac OS X Lion (10.7.5) so,  I compiled myself with Qt 5.6.1 with success.
If you want my compiled version to test on your system tell me.
