Plans

The table below specifies the more or less concrete short-to-mid-term plans:

Target date Application Version Editions Features

A-880 Manager
BC Manager
FCB1010 Manager

2020 MIDI Tools 3.0.0 Linux same as macOS/Windows
2020 BC Manager 5.0.0 Linux same as macOS/Windows
2021 BC Manager 6.0.0 All BCL bypass

Needless to say, all this is heavily subject to change.

Nearly all applications are available on Windows as dual 32/64-bit installers (which automatically install the edition matching the operating system) and as 32- and 64-bit portable editions.
The exception is the Delta Framework application, which will remain available only as a 32-bit installer until further notice.
The Delta Framework application is behind the times in several other respects as well, such as:

  • MIDI I/O handling.
  • It is 'pre-mountainutilities.eu', thus links to the old Mountain Utilities web site.
  • It doesn't provide advanced setup/desktop management yet.

The table below specifies the general plans for all applications, concerning the availability of manuals, and macOS and Linux editions.

Linux:
At the moment no application has a Linux edition.
However, the only remaining stumbling-block is the lack of low-level MIDI I/O handling.
Once this is implemented (hopefully in 2020), creating Linux editions should be easy, particularly for the four applications already having macOS editions, since the source code of these macOS editions can be used for Linux almost verbatim.

macOS:
Apple now deprecates 32-bit macOS applications.
Unfortunately, the Lazarus programming language, used for the existing 32-bit macOS editions of four Mountain Utilities applications, doesn't support the 64-bit macOS interface ("Cocoa") fully yet.
Therefore work on 64-bit editions of these applications can only start once Lazarus does support Cocoa fully.
It is unknown when this will be the case: perhaps in 2020?
