There is now a native ARM64 build for Apple’s M1 chip devices. The X86 version continues to run just fine on those machines but going forward I will be supplying 2 builds of the app for each machine. This is a middle of the road conversion so far. The main app is completely arm but the embedded python implementation and the included binary plugins are still x86 code. If you have an M1 mac that is running XTension please download and test this version. It makes no database format changes so if there are issues you can go back to the release version by just replacing the executable.
In general the M1 and X86 versions should function identically however if you have an M1 machine it will likely load slightly faster and possibly run slightly faster and will use less memory and other system resources.
Both M1 and original X86 compiles of this version are available.
NOTE: when you first run the new version on the most recent system versions it will make you approve access to the documents folder. Once you have done this once it should not ask again on future launches. If you click deny you must go into the security and privacy and manually re-enable XTension for access to the Documents folder.
In addition to the M1 build this beta includes the following changes and fixes:
Note that the M1 version is not a Universal build and will not run on X86 based machines. While the X86 version runs just fine on the M1 chip under emulation the M1 version will not run on an X86 based machine.
