32 Bit Apps Such as iWeb Not Supported in Apple’s Next Generation macOS!

Thursday, May 23rd, 2019

During the month of May, there is always press speculation about what the future holds for Apple’s major operating systems: iOS, watchOS, tvOS and, of course, macOS. This year is no exception, but one thing is sure… support for 32 bit applications in Apple’s macOS operating system will end with the release of Apple’s new 2019 software for desktop and laptop computers.

The end of 32 bit support has been flagged since June 2018. Last year’s Apple World Wide Developer Conference announced that with macOS Mojave (10.14) there would be warnings when launching 32 bit apps they should be converted to 64-Bit ASAP as they would not be supported in Apple’s 2019 macOS release.

One year later and we’re almost at the next WWDC and the next macOS will then be only a few months away.

If you are still using iWeb, this should give you pause for thought especially if you plan to buy a new Mac with a new OS on it in the near future! Now may be the time to switch from iWeb but will it be easy to do so? With EverWeb, we think it’s really easy! Here’s why…

Why Go From iWeb to EverWeb?

  • Both iWeb and EverWeb are drag and drop website builders for the Mac.
  • iWeb and EverWeb have similar User Interfaces making the learning curve a lot quicker when moving from one to the other. You’ll get up to speed in EverWeb in next to no time.
  • Both products support blogging. You can easily import your iWeb blog in to EverWeb with just a few mouse clicks.
  • You can host with your own provider or with EverWeb which gives you extra benefits built directly in to the product such as password protection, 404 page not found, 301 page redirects and regular product updates throughout the year
  • EverWeb fulfils the promise of iWeb with responsive web design, template pages, 100’s of free themes, in product SEO for better Search Page Results Rankings, animation effects, PayPal e-commerce built in, in product website project backups, fast, one-click publishing and much, much more.
  • EverWeb always keeps up to date with technology, so there is always something new to enjoy with every product update which usually happens every couple of months.
  • You will no longer have problems with iWeb crashing or other associated issues that hinder you working. EverWeb has been a 64 bit product for over a year and our regular product releases throughout the year always include stability and maintenance fixes.
  • EverWeb comes with 7×24 support 365 days a year if you have a valid user licence. There’s also the EverWeb community where you can ask questions, suggest features that you would like added to the product, try out the latest beta test versions of EverWeb and see what’s available from EverWeb’s third party providers.
  • Check out EverWeb’s blog (yes you’re here!) and also our YouTube channel that’s packed width videos about every aspect of EverWeb.
  • EverWeb is not a subscription service so you alway keep the product that you initially purchased if you do not want to renew after the first year. You keep the product and any website you have built.
  • And last but not least, EverWeb is now in its sixth year and we continue to grow and innovate! We’re committed to delivering the best we can offer to our community.

EverWeb Addon Products

EverWeb can be purchased as a standalone product if you have your own hosting provider, or with EverWeb+Hosting Lite and Hosting Pro options to suit all needs. There are also additional products that you can add to your purchase such as Site Shield Addon for HTTPS Secure websites.

Third party widgets and theme template add-ons are also available if you cannot find exactly what you need out of the box!

Apple Updates iWeb To Version 3.0.3

Wednesday, February 16th, 2011

Although I wouldn’t consider this the iWeb 11 update everyone was waiting for, Apple has released a small update to the web publishing software. iWeb 3.0.3 was released today by Apple. This new version brings minor improvements including;

  • Addresses an issue when using the iSight Movie widget on certain Macs
  • Addresses an issue publishing iWeb sites using FTP
  • Improves compatibility with Mac OS X

Although a minor update, this may indicate that Apple is still working on iWeb and hopefully will release something that we can consider iWeb 11 to go along with the previous iLife updates. iWeb is still not yet available in the Mac App Store.

iLife ’11, Including iWeb ’11, Coming Soon?

Sunday, October 3rd, 2010

Reports of a new version of iLife have been circulating for a few months now. It was first speculated that iLife ’11 would be released in August, then September and now November with a book listing on Amazon.com according to 9to5mac.com.

Whether or not iLife ’11 gets released next month with a new version of iWeb is yet to be known. What we do know is that all of our software will be 100% compatible with the new version of iWeb. The only product that may need an update is iWeb SEO Tool, but it is very unlikely that the new version of iWeb will cause conflicts with it. All of our other software will be fully functional in their current versions when iWeb ’11 is eventually released.

Our speculation for what will come with iWeb ’11 is new templates, twitter integration, updated blogging features and possibly some creative HTML 5 only features. 64-bit versions of all applications is also very likely. An iOS version is also very possible.

Back From Macworld

Sunday, January 14th, 2007

Yesterday night I arrived back home from Macworld in San Francisco. I think it was a great show and definitely well attended. There are two things that I did find odd however. One is that Steve Jobs did not make any announcements regarding the Mac. Not even a demonstration of Leopard. Aren’t these the people who will be buying Leopard in a few short months? I was surprised that there were no computer updates, software announcements (iLife 07?), or a Leopard preview. This was probably because Steve wanted to emphasis the fact that Apple is no longer just a Computer company. But still, I think a Leopard preview should be the least that is expected at Macworld. This isn’t Appleworld:-)

The second thing that really surprised me was how many companies were there to promote iPod accessories, specifically iPod cases. There were so many companies promoting all these iPod cases, many promoting virtually the same iPod case, just in a slightly different color. Then you had a wide variety of iPod speakers. These guys must be selling their stuff because Macworld is not cheap. If they are then good for them. However, I think for the good of the Mac platform and the Mac community there needs to be a rise in the number of software (specifically shareware or small software companies), who attend to show off their new Mac products. There are small pavilions that small software companies are able to purchase for a relatively cheap amount, but by far the most prevalent products announced and being promoted at Macworld were iPod related. I would personally like to see Macworld take the initiative to support small software developers by recognizing the impact small developers have on the Mac community. They should guarantee a certain number of small software vendors and reduce the price for ADC pavilions to make them more accessible to emerging Mac developers. Although there were a lot of small software companies exhibiting, in relation to iPod related products, they were well out-shined.

Other than that, I think the Macworld Expo was a great success and a great resource for Mac enthusiasts. Even more importantly, next year it will be a great resource for RAGE enthusiasts. We have already booked our booth and will be there to show off some new products we have been working on and, more importantly, meet face to face with our customers. We will post more details as the event gets closer, but we are real excited here for next year. For now, mark down January 14-18, 2008 in your iCal calendar!
