Later this month the new version of MacOS will become available, being named High Sierra. This will involve fairly major changes to the file system. One of the biggest impacting changes will be that the system will only run 64 bit apps. Hence any 32 bit apps we may have will simply disappear.
My research shows that Coollector is a 32 bit app. Will there be an upgrade to the program to make it 64 bit, or will the program simply disappear on Macs?
Lets hope not, considering the effort and dollars that I am sure we have all put into our databases.
Hopefully someone will have some good news.
In the meantime I will be holding off upgrading, as this is not the only 32 bit app on my system.
But we can't indefinitely put off the inevitable.
Thanks Steve

The app is actively maintained, with at least 1 update each month.

If Apple requires that the app is compiled as 64 bit, I'll do what they want, it's not a problem at all. :D

Thank you for this info. I will release the next update in a few days and I will make it 64 bits.

After checking, I've found that the last 32 bit version of Mac OS X was Snow Leopard, so it'll be fine for everyone. :V:
