Major 64Bit Updates for Mac OSX 11.0, 12.0 and Later
As of the date of this notice, ALL McCAD tools and utilities have been rewritten to conform with Apple's Latest OSX11, OSX12 and later releases.
Numerous 64Bit running issues have been resolved. The Current releases incorporate all of Apple's certificating and ID requirements. We advise all users to upgrade as soon as possible.
This especially applies to any users who maybe using any Non-Roman Fonts sets. These Non-Roman fonts when used on the Latest 64 Bit Mac OSes running our older software
versions can result in dire problems with file management. Upgrading is the only option.
Please be aware that these upgrades are not free.
Unfortunately, because of changes made to the Apple OSes and the development tool versions required to produce compatible shipping versions of our software products
we can no longer easily continue to maintain support for older product releases. Where posible we will try to continue with that going forward.
However, based on what we see coming down the line from Apple we advise that our users plan for keeping their Hardware and OSes and Tools more current.
We are bound by Apple's changes and dictates.
Also please note that these updates may run on older Mac OSes. This will depend on how updated the particular OS is (i.e., does it contain what is in OS 12 and later).
We have not tested this and currently have no plans to do so because of the large number of variations that are possible. It is also unknown whether we could build to that specific configuration.
Therefore, if you find that it works for you consider yourselve fortunate. Everyone else will have to move to newer OSes and tools.

Balance for other products to follow in the coming weeks.
