• Will Isadora be working on the new apple silicon M1?

    Will it be universal app or working with Roseta 2?

    Thanks


  • Yes, we intend to port Isadora to run natively on the new ARM chips. But since this will likely be a significant effort, you should not expect to see it immediately.

    We do not yet know if Isadora runs under emulation, as we do not yet have an ARM machine. We will be moving to acquire one right away.

    It will be interesting to see where this goes for Isadora.

    Huh! Who would have thought we might be using Isadora branded software on an iPad or iPhone within the next couple of years. Convergence of Mac and iOS has been anticipated for more than a decade - and now it appears to be here! A big challenge for independent Mac developers as these pro machines get flooded with iOS apps and integration.

    Does it also mean that a lower base priced machines like mini mac/Mac Air can now handle Izzy?


  • Dear All,

    I have posted some thoughts after reading a review of the M1 machines in Forbes. Please have a look.

    Hello Mark. As always I want to thank you for this wonderful program. I have used it for over 10 years and it is such a wonderful tool.


    I got an M1 Mac mini and tried isadora on it with Rosetta 2. Izzy opened right up and snappily even. But so far the movie players only play audio. I am sure you are well aware of this but I just wanted you to have the Info.


    cheers

    Isadora 3 is not yet compatible with Big Sur because Apple just loves making life difficult for us developers. :-(

    However, we have a beta that _is_ compatible and working well with Big Sur, and that will likely solve the problem.

    If you want to sign up for the beta test program you we can let you try it.

    Regardless, you can expect a the Big Sur compatible version to arrive soon into the new year.

    Best Wishes,
