32 Bit Problem

Post by Ericstheguy » Sat Jun 09, 2018 7:45 am

I have a pop up saying that
Audacity isn't optimized for my mac
when I open Audacity since my Mac os x is macOS High Sierra Version 10.13.4. There is this article that explains about 32-bit programs / applications being less advised to run on new macs: https://support.apple.com/en-nz/HT208436. Is there any chance of Audacity upgrading to 64-bit technology?

We are aware of the issue and 64-bit is in the pipeline. No firm date for release at this time.

Thank you for the answer. Just after I posted this I saw on the menu it said that it was going to be upgraded soon, But I wasn't bothered to delete or whatever.
