Support for version 2020.36.3 has ended.
The choice to have Daylite be a native app has its advantages. Better performance, offline access and integration with Apple Systems. However, as with every choice, there are trade-offs.
In the past, our policy has been to support the three most current OS. On the surface, this policy made sense. Many businesses could continue to use Daylite after a macOS update, but this policy has sometimes done more harm than good. Each year Apple adds new capabilities to help you do more. To achieve this, they remove the old code while adding new, better technology without looking back. Supporting Daylite on older operating systems has added bloat, made Daylite complex to support and slow to develop. Maintaining old code creates new bugs, and keeps us from being able to add new features to Daylite fast enough, the features you’ve asked to be added.
This year, with the introduction of macOS 11 (Big Sur) and its many new capabilities, we had an important decision to make.
We want to provide you with a first-class app in macOS 11 but, we found that supporting macOS 10.14, 10.15, and 11.0 would create more of the same problems. The data shows that the current number of customers using macOS 10.14 is below 20%, and that number will only continue to decrease after Big Sur is released.
With all this in mind, giving you the best experience, modern features, fewer bugs, and faster development, we’ve decided to drop macOS 10.14. Support for Daylite version 2020.36.3 has ended. Customers that are running Daylite on macOS 10.14 should look to upgrade to macOS 10.15.7 or macOS 11.
