Advance Notice: PowerPC Support Going Away

Support in my apps for PowerPC Macs will be dropped as of Feeder 2.2 and Together 2.5, which will be released as the year progresses. Poster only runs on Mac OS X 10.6 and later and is therefore already Intel-only.

The reason, quite simply, is that Apple is transitioning their developer tools and has dropped PowerPC support from the new versions, which will make it impossible to both build apps for PowerPC and take advantage of the new features in Mac OS X 10.7 Lion, out later this year.

Personally, while I can understand why Apple is doing this, I think the move is a tad premature. I would rather wait until such a time that I choose to drop support for Mac OS X 10.5, the last version of Mac OS X to run on PowerPC.

The final versions of the apps to run on PowerPC will always be available to download from this site.
