Hi, I checker which of my beloved outliners would pass away if I upgraded to the latest OS system :
hère goes :
64 bits (so, should be ok, although Aperture is 64 bits but will be killed by Apple if the OS is upgraded…)

- [ ] WriteRoom 3.3.0
- [ ] VoodooPad 5.3.0
- [ ] Simplenote 1.1.8
- [ ] OmniOutliner Essentials 5.4.2
- [ ] nvAlt 2.2.8
- [ ] Notes 4.6
- [ ] NotePlan 2.0.19
- [ ] NotePlan 1.6.30
- [ ] Notebooks 2;0
- [ ] Notational Velocity 2.0.ݛƒ5
- [ ] Neo 1.1.1
- [ ] MacJournal 6.2.1

those who will leave us
- [ ] Mori
- [ ] Opal
- [ ] Journler
- [ ] TopXNotes
- [ ] TopXNotes 2

Any thoughts? I am surprised Notational Velocity is 64 bits (so early! If accurate, this is remarkable)

My mistake, I just found there is a 64 bits compatible version of Opal (http://a-sharp.com/opal/download.html)

The interesting thing is that they didn’t *have* to do kill 32-bit apps; Windows hasn’t and probably never will. Apple did it because, you know, Apple.

Sure you can avoid upgrading to Catalina—for now—but at some point you’ve gotta make a decision to move on; either from those apps or from Apple itself.

For me, I choose the latter. Not because of Catalina but because of the butterfly keyboard on their macbooks. Any company that would deliberately do that to their customers—including me—is a company that I will never give more money to. Ever. For any product.

As far as the 32-bit sendoff goes, the one that I will really miss is Inspiration. It’s an outliner/mind map app that I use all the time—and have for many (many) years—because it’s familiar, does everything that I want/need and is cross-platform. The Windows version, of course, still works fine.

That’s an odd list - it includes apps for which Catalina-compatible updates are available (Simplenote, Omnioutliner, Notebooks, MacJournal are ones I’m aware of).

Does this purport to be a list of apps that don’t work? Or apps that may exhibit some issues?

Well, he wrote “64 bits (so, should be ok…”. Does that answer your question?
