  • Start64!Microsoft Office 2016 for Mac is on the verge of moving to 64-bit. The good news is that the transition from 32-bit to 64-bit should be seamless for most users. There are, of course, still a few aspects worth knowing if you rely on Microsoft’s productivity suite. Here’s what longtime Office for Mac users need to know about the switch to 64-bit.

  • Start64!Microsoft is working to bring a 64-bit version of the Office productivity suite on Apple’s Mac, and the company took an important step recently towards this goal when it pushed this new release to the slow ring of the Insider program.

  • Start64!As you may know, Apple has long encouraged application developers to adopt the 64-bit runtime environment, and we’ve been hearing from customers (e.g. here and here) that 64-bit versions of Mac Office are desirable to enable larger address spaces, better performance, and new innovative features. The Mac Office team has been working on the transition and we’re currently preparing to release the Office apps in full 64-bit.

  • Start64!It's been over a year since Apple required all app updates to offer a 64-bit binary. It would appear that the firm now wants to warn you when you use an app that doesn't comply with the rule, or more specifically, a 32-bit app that hasn't been updated since before June 1, 2015 when the rule was enforced.

  • Start64!LiquidSonics' Reverberate is a highly efficient hybrid convolution reverb audio processor offering true zero-latency operation for two separate, stereo impulse responses for Mac and PC supporting VST, Audio Units, AAX and RTAS.

  • Start64!The Wine Staging team announced a few minutes ago, April 19, 2016, that the Wine Staging 1.9.8 development release is now available for download via the official channels.

  • Start64!Apple this morning acknowledged the bug whereby if you change your date to May 1970 or earlier, you won't be able to restart your iOS device. The bug affects all iOS devices that utilize a 64-bit chipset.

  • Start64!The next big thing from Apple is really big. The new iPad Pro announced by the Cupertino-based company features a large 12.9-inch Retina display. It's a little bit larger than Samsung's Galaxy Note Pro 12.2 slate, which measures 295.6 x 204 x 8mm and weighs 753g (battery included).

  • Start64!Pearl Linux was released a couple of months ago as a natural successor of the much more famous Pear OS, which disappeared mysteriously. Now, the 64-bit edition has been released as well.

  • Start64!Starting next year, Apple will require all new app submissions and all new updates to include support for 64-bit architectures (the A7 and A8 chips in the company's newest line of iDevices), as well as to support iOS 8 natively.

  • Start64!Apple has recently announced that new and updated apps submitted to the Apple App Store must include 64-bit support for them to be approved. This change will be implemented by the Apple App Store starting February 1, 2015.

  • Start64!Google has unveiled Chrome 39 FINAL for Windows, Mac and Linux. The big news with version 39 is the long-awaited arrival of a native 64-bit build for Mac users. Unlike the Windows version, which offers both 32-bit and 64-bit builds, the Mac build is now 64-bit only, and existing users with supported Macs will be automatically upgraded to the new version.

  • Start64!Google today released Chrome 39, the company's first 64-bit browser for OS X from its "stable" branch. The update also patched 42 vulnerabilities and paid $41,500 in bounties to the bug hunters who reported a dozen of the flaws.

  • Start64!We are planning to discontinue support for 32 bit Macs for Tor Browser. We're doing this for two main reasons. First, Apple itself no longer supports 32 bit Macs. The only remaining 32 bit Mac users are on OSX 10.6, which Apple ended support for in February of this year. Second, 64 bit software has improved security properties by way of improved address space layout randomization (ASLR), which makes exploitation more difficult.

  • Start64!A terse but very clear message directed at registered developers has been sent out this week from Cupertino: all app submissions from February 1 forth must support 64-bit architectures and iOS 8. No ifs or buts.

  • Start64!This is probably the first beta release of a new version of Chrome in a long time, where everything works pretty much out of the bugs. Chrome 38 Beta is faster and it didn't break any plugin functionality or it didn't show any strange behavior on web pages.

  • Start64!Chrome announced back in June that its Canary build of its Chrome browser (meant for early adopters and developers) would finally support 64-bit on Windows. At the time, no indication was given as to when other platforms would support 64-bit.

  • Start64!Back in September of last year after Apple unveiled the iPhone 5S smart-phone with a 64-bit processor, they said they would ultimately open-source their 64-bit ARM compiler back-end... A half-year later, we're finally seeing this code that yields another AArch64 back-end for LLVM.

  • Start64!When computer users think of the buzzword "64-bit", usually the first thing that comes to mind is the Windows operating system, which comes in two flavors; 32-bit or 64-bit. Like a computer, a smartphone or tablet also has an operating system, (usually Android OS, iOS, or Windows), and to run as 64-bit, it needs a processor that is built to do so.
