macOS 10.15 Catalina Support Info

(Eventide Staff)
October 03, 2019 - 03:00 pm

Apple is expected to release macOS 10.15 Catalina sometime in October.

At the moment, our plugins are not currently supported on macOS 10.15. We have been conducting systematic tests, and there are several known issues that we are working on resolving. We hope to officially support macOS 10.15 soon.

In the meantime, please do not install macOS 10.15 if you are using Eventide plugins. Please check back here regularly for up-to-date information about compatibility.

This release is not exactly a big surprise. Developers have had access to betas for months. Why weren't more human resources put on this?

Companies much larger than ours are having problems with Catalina.

Unless your really really need it, I would suggest that you wait a while.

Are these problems due to 32-bit support going away? That's been in the works for *years*.

Sorry Eventide, you have had the chance of testing and making the necessary adjustments with the Catalina beta for months. As I just spent quite some money on plugins from you I find this amateur way you are dealing with it pretty upsetting. What is you time frame for a solution now? Some days? Some months?

Many companies much larger than Eventide do not yet have support for Catalina. For example:

http://avid.force.com/pkb/articles/en_US/Compatibility/macOS-Catalina-su...

This stuff is not easy.

Please do not rush to upgrade to the latest shiniest thing unless either you really need it, or are confident that full support is in place.

Please do not assume people are anxious to install Catalina merely because they like shiny things.  For example, Apple will be releasing security updates, and perhaps they will only install under Catalina. Other application vendors will be making highly desireable new releases, and perhaps they will only install under Catalina. Some use systems that are administered by IT staff, and they may have policies such that they only support the latest OS release.

etc.

Hi all-

It is understandable that the current lack of support on Catalina is frustrating. As nickrose has mentioned, there are quite a number of significant changes in the release of Catalina, and they are not trivial to support.

We have in fact been testing with the Catalina betas for several months, and making the necessary changes to our plugins and installers to support the release. However, there are still gating items - which we have reported to Apple - that prevent us from yet offerring full support. Additionally, Apple has been a moving target with regard to the changes required by Catalina. This process is further complicated when you are creating software which is run inside of other software (e.g. plug-ins).

Of course, it is understood that there are a variety of reasons that users would want to update to Catalina. We are working to support it as soon as possible.

-Tom
