High Sierra Support

(1/4) > >>

Hi Guys,

Probably getting a little ahead of myself here, but I noticed that WeatherCat is pretty much the only 32 bit app I am regularly running.  With High Sierra out next month (supposedly - officially just northern Fall) and it (supposedly) removing 32 bit app support, is there a timeline for a WeatherCat update?

I am very sensitive to this noting that it is a similar issue to IOS 11 (also going 64 but only), for which I have a couple of very useful apps that are still 32 bit (and looking unlikely to be updated - leaving me in a bit of a predicament).

I think High Sierra (10.13) is the last version that will still support 32 bit apps. It will be whatever comes after HS (10.14?) that will require 64 bit apps. Butt, i,ve ben rong befour!  [lol]

Felix:
Yep, X-Air is correct. You'll be good for one more year but Stu needs to get cracking and testing. The handwriting is on the wall, iOS 11 will drop 32-bit support this year.


Another program I've been keeping an eye on is SuperDuper which I run nightly on schedule. It's still 32-bit as well.

Yep. I was a former SuperDuper user and switched over to Carbon Copy Cloner. The developers currently have a v5 beta for High Sierra testing with the new file system. It is just as good as SD and seems to be a little more modern interface.

Bombich is ahead of Nanian thus far with regard to APFS. The only way to use SuperDuper with High Sierra at this point of the beta is to install without converting to APFS (in other words, load 10.13 but stay with HFS+) which kind of defeats the purpose of loading/testing the beta.


Presumably, everyone is running 10.13 on a partition so it's not the end of the world if it's not backed up. Unless you're a developer I suppose.
