Indigo 64bit version in the pipe line?

I got a message in Mojave when starting Indigo after a system update. See attached screen capture.

It seems that Indigo is still a 32 bit app. Are there any plans for making a 64 bit version? Apple will stop supporting 32 bit apps at some stage (no date is set yet).

Thanks.
Stupid me, should have done a better search before posting.

To be fair I knew it had been, tried to search for any and couldn't find them. Tried searching on 64 bit and didn't get any joy.

I’d rather 65 bit support. It’s clearly 1 better than 64 bit.

Computer says no.

Unfortunately, one of the biggest failings of phpbb is that there are some words/letter combinations which are not indexed well (or at all) so they don't show up in searches. This one falls in that category. I did tweak the post that is linked to above to include "64bit" to help with the searching.

Just a note that you can often find Google will help get around the limitations of phpbb indexing and I can often get useful results not available through the forum's built-in search function.

Agreed. I add site:forums.indigodomo.com to the search line in google to get results from the forums only.

+1

I should have added that, too. I do the same thing.

Support for X86-64 would be enough for me. Among other improvements, the X86-64 architecture provides twice the number of CPU memory registers over the X86 architecture, which usually yields a significant increase in speed. Twice the registers means slow writes/reads to main memory occur less often. In other words, the move to "64-bits" isn't just about the increased precision available. Some applications work just fine within 32-bits native precision but would still benefit from using the "new"* hardware and software architecture.

*X86-64 is almost 20 years old.

Did you think I was being serious?

Indigo is a very lightweight program. Since a lot of devices in Indigo will be Z-Wave or Insteon, the bottleneck at is the serial interface to those devices along with the slow transfer rates. 64-bit will not make the devices turn on any quicker. I doubt many people have an Indigo instance that uses more than 4GB of RAM; plugins included. If someone is running security spy and other programs, that does change the RAM requirements.
