MacOS 11 Big Sur Support

#1 Post by sram » 16 Nov 2020, 11:27

Can we expect MacOS Big Sur support anytime within the next one year considering the fact that DipTrace still doesn't support Catalina, without workaround, which released one year ago?

Have you abandoned MacOS development?

We will evaluate new version of Mac OS then let you know whether DipTrace works on Big Sur or not.
Development of native version is postponed indefinitely as we develop other features.

We just tested DipTrace 4.0.0.5 on MacOS 11.0.1 Big Sur. The software starts on new MacOS and works as expected.

So, the project and library directories only working from within the DipTrace executable has been fixed?

We recommend to save DipTrace files within Wine prefix because some problems may happen with accessing files outside the prefix.

I believe DipTrace uses Crossover, which is built on WINE and so Diptrace can work on new Apple Silicon Macs (which have amazing performace) because Crossover 20 was demonstrated to work on M1 Apple silicon Macs.

A native version for new Apple Silicon would be great as the performance is out of this world and would probably benefit DipTrace when doing intensive processes, like routing?
Developing a native version would be a very good idea as these new high performance/low power consumption Apple Silicon Macs, I believe, will become very popular in the coming years.

We tested DipTrace on Intel-based Mac book with Big Sur and it works. We haven't tested it on M1 Apple Silicon yet therefore I don't know whether it works or not. Of course, native version would be good solution but it requires a lot of code rework.
