For the purposes of normal communication, libhpcalcs ( / / ) compiles and runs on Windows, Linux, MacOS X Smile
It's written in C for maximum portability and interoperability. However, nobody made a GUI for it. Nowadays, Qt is the abstraction layer / GUI toolkit of choice.
It does not implement the firmware reflashing protocol, which is only partially understood ( ).

Some MacOS X users are experiencing different behaviour depending on how the calculator is connected to the computer (e.g. directly or through a hub), but that's outside libhpcalcs' control. There has also been a recent report of overly large and corrupted screenshots... but on the computer side, the size of the packet is extracted from what the calculator sends, so it would seem like the calculator sends garbage ?
At least, the same packet parsing code works when I'm testing against the Windows Prime emulator, through to the CK <-> Emulator communication channel, under Wine. This is all I can do by myself because I don't have a real Prime.

Further discussion about libhpcalcs itself, if any, belongs to the other topic, however Smile
