I've put together a collection of screen shots to walk you through the new GUI installer for ColdFusion 7.01 for Mac OS X. Previously one had to perform several tedious prerequisite installations, but now CFMX is available in a clickable, user friendly installer.

For the first time, the System Requirements page lists support for production use of Apple Mac OS X 10.3.9, 10.4.2 and 10.4.3. Previously, the sysreqs had a footnote for for Mac to indicate support was development only.

Some versions of Windows now bear the Development Only footnote, including Windows 2000 Professional and Windows XP.

For convenience in starting and stopping the server as well as using the web server config tool, check out the ColdFusionLauncher.app.
