macOS 64-bits versions of maxprog products available

Topics

Most modern operating systems like Apple macOS, Microsoft Windows and Linux are all 64-bits operating systems. For that reason we have been working on 64-bit versions of all our products for months.

At WWDC 2017, Apple announced new apps submitted to the Mac App Store must support 64-bit starting January 2018, and Mac app updates and existing apps must support 64-bit starting June 2018. macOS High Sierra will be the last macOS release to support 32-bit apps without compromise. The next release of macOS after High Sierra will begin to restrict 32-bit apps and will feature "aggressive" warnings about the coming change. Apple has not said at exactly which point support will be phased out completely.

For Windows, Microsoft still ships both 32-bit and 64-bit versions. So we’ll have to also have both 32-bit and 64-bit versions of our apps available. Customers that are running a 64-bit version of Windows can run either the 32-bit or 64-bit versions of our apps. But customers on a 32-bit version of Windows can only run a 32-bit version of our apps.

Updating our applications to 64-bit has taken some time in order to review all their functionalities thoroughly. The good news for you is that we are done, you will be able to use all the memory available on your computer and you will now put less strain on the OS as it does not have to load a 32-bit compatibility layer anymore.

As a small reminder, the terms 32-bit and 64-bit refer to the way a computer's processor handles information. A 64-bit operating system handles large amounts of memory more effectively than a 32-bit system. While 32 bits of information can only access 4 GB of memory, a 64-bit machine can access 17.2 billion gigabytes of system memory! That means that your video card and other devices will not be stealing usable memory space from the operating system any longer. In addition software programs that require lots of calculations can operate faster and more efficiently on 64-bit processors.

Handling more memory is very good for most of our products and they can even work slightly faster however it will be difficult to tell. The memory space available for our programs will be bigger and it will be less problematic in case of memory leak issues. A memory leak is when memory which is no longer needed is not released properly. This is a rare problem that may end with the program crashing.

So, right now these are the applications that are now available as 64-bit:

- MaxBulk Mailer 8.6.3
- eMail Verifier 3.7.2
- eMail Extractor 3.7.3
- eMail Bounce Handler 3.9.3
- Web Dumper 3.4.2
- FTP Disk 1.4.2
- Loan Calc 2.8.2

Please test it and report any error or add your comments below.

What about iCash? No worry, iCash 64-bit has been a bit more complex to port. It will be available in the coming days!.
