Plans

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

Target date Application Version Editions Features
Roadmap
Late 2018 D-5 Manager 2.0.0 Windows Manual
Editable libraries?
Late 2018 GT-3 Manager 1.2.0 Windows Manual
Late 2018 R-8 Manager 1.5.0 Windows Manual
Late 2018 ProMix 01 Manager 1.4.0 Windows Manual
Late 2018 BCN44 Manager 1.4.0 Windows Manual
Late 2018 XG Manager 1.5.0 Windows Manual
Late 2018 CSV Doctor 1.4.0 Windows Manual
2019? misc. misc. macOS 64-bit editions
2019 MIDI Tools 3.0.0 macOS/Windows SysEx messages via MIDI Thru
2019 BC Manager 5.0.0 macOS/Windows SysEx messages via MIDI Thru
2019 MIDI Tools 3.0.0 Linux same as macOS/Windows
2019 BC Manager 5.0.0 Linux same as macOS/Windows
2020 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 for the foreseeable future.
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 the availability on macOS and Linux.

macOS:
Apple has started deprecating 32-bit macOS applications, such as the four Mountain Utilities applications coming in 32-bit macOS editions (as specified in the table below).
Unfortunately, the Lazarus programming language, used to create these four 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 uncertain when this will be the case: perhaps in 2019?
