Using v5.15.4.

As of OS X 10.13.5 (High Sierra) I'm receiving warning's about 32bit deprecation.

https://support.apple.com/en-gb/HT208436

Are there plans for a 64bit OS X version?

hi ,
i am a total newbie to programming, but the gui doesn't seem to work properly under High Sierra:
the app is crashing showing you "access violation" and forces you to quit, it also freezes, or closes suddenly in a middle of an action .
does Someone know how to improve the gui for Mac ?
Greetings ,
Alex

  1. install Lazarus development environment
  2. download project to your computer
  3. run under the debugger.

Enjoy )))

@AlexCGN13 Obviously it shouldn't crash, but it does run relatively crash free on High Sierra 10.13.6 for me. Might be something specific to your app or system preferences?

OS X Mojave is now released and it suggests to move to 64-bit app. Any updates on moving to 64-bit app?

If there are programmers.
For some reason, there are no free programmers for OS X (Mac)

Would it be easy to compile for 64 bit if I have a mac, but don't know Pascal/Lazarus too much?

Or would somebody be able to donate for Circle CI to build this automatically, for example? There's macOS support, but it requires paid plan

@faergeek Travis CI also supports macOS for free plan, as you can see we are using.

@PeterDaveHello Sorry, didn't RTFM too much. So what's the problem with 64-bit build? Just googled and didn't find confirmation that Travis CI doesn't support 64-bit or vice versa. Is that problem? What about cross-compilation then?

@PeterDaveHello Could you please estimate at least too approximately how much changes it needs? All over the codebase or only some places? Didn't try to read the code yet, sorry again

@PeterDaveHello Is there any news when switching to a 64-bit?

Hi @PeterDaveHello does that mean once Apple update Mac OS Mojave this year (and likely restrict it to 64 bit only apps) we won't be able to use Trans Gui anymore? Or will you assign resource to it before then?

@Jbb08 I'm not really sure, maybe only Apple knows it.
To be honest that I have no resource to be located on this, it's all free and open source without donation or company support, feel free to contribute if you want ;)

@PeterDaveHello Apple already announced it actually. 10.14 Mojave is the last release to support 32-bit software. Once people upgrade to 10.15 the app will no longer work.

Don’t mean that as a criticism. Just as an FYI since you seemed unsure.

@mrowlinson Thanks, I know the announcement, just as that's not something we can control, so it always depends on Apple.

Why this information? While not one owner of Apple has offered his help.

We have no Apple and no desire to buy these products. Therefore, please offer a solution to finalize the program.

I’m an Apple user and if I knew how to support and make it work I would. We can’t let this amazing GUI die because no one knows how to update it to 64bit :(

I think:

  1. install Lazarus, 64bit version (from site).
  2. compile version in Lazarus

I'm an OS X, Linux, FreeBSD and Windows user. They all have their merits and target users.

I'll install Lazarus and have a poke around. The Lazarus community seem fairly supportive and other people are looking at the 64bit conversions https://forum.lazarus.freepascal.org/index.php?topic=40268.0

The Carbon widget problem is likely way over my head. I'm capable of compiling stuff and changing a few flags and knobs but that's about it.

@baz1536 I've been working for a little while on a 64-bit Cocoa port that can be run in Catalina. Builds can be found here, though note that they are not fully-tested:

Your latest v5.17.0-cocoa-alpha6 build works perfectly for me. Thank you!

will a 64 bit version be released before macOS 10.15 (aka Catalina) is released on October 4th? or only afterwards? Can you already give an approximate date?

Hi, thanks for the fast reply. and thank you for your work. :-)
I just wanted to know, you better leave your time and publish a bug-free version, 10.15 can wait.
Apple probably has to fix a lot, as it was with iOS 13.0, so it does not hurt to wait a few weeks with the update to 10.15 ;-)

@mrc247-DE thanks, actually, bug-free it's impossible for real, and we do have a lot of known issues waiting to be fixed or implemented, feel free to help report and join development to make it better and better.

macOS Catalina came out today and no longer supports 32-bit apps. A new release would be good!
