    The compiler itself may not be the biggest issue but the GNUStep runtime.
    Someone working on that?

    We currently don't know I suppose, Objective-C is not enough we need the API that goes with it.
    Itix wrote that a new programming language was under work IIRC, who knows which one.

    Swift would be the burner. But unlikely I guess.

    The Synergy server bundled with MorphOS was written in Objective-C.

    Really? MorphOS comes with a Synergy server bundled? Or do you mean client?

    OK, I have found a Portable Objective-C compiler (http://users.telenet.be/stes/compiler.html).
    A MorphOS pre-built binary is available on Aminet.
    But this does not contain the GNUStep runtime.

    If Synergy server is done in Objective-C and this was compiled for MorphOS I'd really like to know more.
    Hard to find anything though.

    Both gcc 4.4.5 and 5.3.0 supplied with the SDK come with objc support enabled and a port of the GNUStep runtime (although incomplete).

    Concerning the new language: I guess that "Lua" is the answer.

    Was introduced with MorphOS 3.8.

    Wish I could tell you more, but this stuff ain't ready yet. Hopefully with the next SDK release...

    And why wouldn't it work provided you use the correct server/client version on Linux? I'm unaware of any issues there really.

    Ok..last I remember you said something needed to be fixed for it to work under Linux but you didnt like Linux and therefore didnt feel like fixing whatever it was. I'll re-test and see if it works.

    From 4 months prior to MorphOS 3.8 release:

    "Linux servers will be supported in the upcoming MorphOS release"

    Synergy works as a server on morphos and linux as a client, but I'm not interested in it that way.

    I want Linux as the server so I can use its kb and mouse and MorphOS as the client. I get

    The synergy you're using on linux is very very old. You need to update.
