We’re pleased to announce the immediate availability of EverWeb version 2.5 which now supports 64-Bit computing. Apple recently announced that the recent release of macOS High Sierra would be the last OS version to support 32 bit applications ‘without compromise‘. As Apple moves towards being a 64-Bit only environment it is important that applications, such as EverWeb, move as well so they function properly under future releases of macOS. In everyday use, you may notice some performance improvements in EverWeb as well as being able. to create larger EverWeb project files than you could before.
EverWeb 2.5 is available in two versions:
OS X 10.6 – 10.8 (32-Bit): Snow Leopard, Lion, Mountain Lion, Mavericks
OS X 10.9 and higher (64-Bit): Mavericks, Yosemite, El Capitan, Sierra, High Sierra
When updating to EverWeb version 2.5, the update process will automatically download the correct version of EverWeb for you.
In addition to 64-Bit support, EverWeb 2.5 includes the following new and enhanced features…
