Just did the deed and upgraded to Catalina  :o

First report:
Everything went completely smoothy and very quickly. With all 64bit apps fully operational after upgrade including all dev systems.
32bit apps now have a cross through them do denote they are no longer supported.

So. It was painful for me at this end.
OS now going though the system and re-catalogue the system.


I lost one app that was dear to me (Scrivener 2.x) , but the rest I am fine with. BMax and Bmax-NG doesn't work for me anymore also, glad I created the launcher before.

Pfft! not a chance :P - It'll be a month or two yet before I even think about blanking the drive and reloading everything from fresh. It due a total fresh install and will take a full day to get everything back to normal  :o
Until the next time...

Because I’ve not had a fresh install for 9 years ( something like that ) as I’ve just kept on upgrading on top so I’m due a proper fresh install :)

Of course, if you're a Mac Developer you can't let your Mac Customers down.   :D

9 years?!  Ok, then that makes sense.  I received a High Sierra version of Mac OS when I bought the MacBook Pro - and upgraded to Mojave when it became available.  So I'm not in upgrade upon upgrade upon upgrade territory.

So I just did the Catalina update. A whole bunch of favorite 32-bit stuff is now dead including many games. Most of the steam games also no longer work on 32-bit. Had to reinstall several apps that HAD catalina support but many don't.

Anyway... BlitzMax NG is no longer working for me. It says that OS X couldn't verify the 'bcc' app and so it's not allowed to be run.

Has a catalina-compatible version of NG been released yet?
