Did you know that you have a custom icon on folders created from your Xojo app? Read on to learn more!
Uniform Type Identifiers (UTIs) are one of the many often misunderstood parts of building native macOS apps. While they’re not just for specifying file types, that’s what I’m going to focus on today.

To help developers check if their software is ready for 64-bit, Apple added a new tool for developers in Xcode 9. With this tool, you can force macOS to run as “64-bit only” to see if your software is ready for a 64-bit only environment.
While at the Xojo Developer Conference in Denver last spring*, we got a lot of great feedback about the features that people needed most from the iOS framework. We managed to sneak a few into recent releases of Xojo; here are three of my favorites!
In the Mac world, 32-bit apps have been disappearing more and more as time goes on. This year already we’ve seen significant steps toward 64-bit.
In January 2018 Apple stopped accepting 32-bit app submissions to the Mac App Store.
In February 2018, starting with macOS 10.13.4, Apple added a warning that displays the first time you launch a 32-bit app.
In June 2018 Apple stopped accepting updates to 32-bit apps in the Mac App Store. All new apps and app updates must now be 64-bit.
At WWDC 2018 Apple announced that macOS 10.14 will be the final version that support 32-bit apps. Although they did not announce a release date, based on the timing from the past few years macOS 10.14 will probably be released around the end of September 2018.
Of course you want an iMac Pro! But do you really need one for your development work? Most of the iMac Pro videos and reviews seem to focus on video and audio editing, which are certainly tasks that make use of the many cores that are available (8-18).

Typically most people will opt for a computer that probably has four cores such as found in the i5 and i7 series. These are used in the popular Macbook Pro and iMac models, for example. Four cores sure sounds like a lot so why would a developer need more?
