Closed topicContinuing Snow Leopard Support

With the upcoming release of Mavericks we're once again considering the number of OS versions that we should be supporting. So it's time for you to weigh in.

Currently Yate is built for 64 bit and 32 bit environments. We would like to drop 32 bit support which is only required for Snow Leopard and older Macs. Actually we'd like to drop support for Snow Leopard. Many UI related API changes were made when Apple moved from Snow Leopard to Lion. Continuing support for Snow Leopard makes it difficult for us to move the UI forward utilizing any of these APIs.

The next major release of Yate will concentrate largely on the UI. We would like to take advantage of all that OS X avails us and dropping Snow Leopard would help greatly. So please let us know your thoughts on this, especially if you have a Snow Leopard requirement.

The choices are:

1. Continue support for Snow Leopard
2. Drop 32 bit support but keep Snow Leopard support
3. Drop 32 bit and Snow Leopard support (yah!)

For me it would be 64 bit, only, and no Snow Leopard.

No more SnowLeopard for ages now...
Let's go 64bit only, please!

I vote for the second option, keep SL support on 64bit. There's still about 30% of of the installed user base that is running Snow Leopard (this year), especially musicians and DJs.

Your focus should be on data handling anyway, not on more advanced interface details.

No need for Snow Leopard.
Rework of the UI would be nice, there are some things which got quite hacky by the time.

64bit and no SL here, either.

UI rewrite is much appreciated some things are not exactly intuitive. 😉
