regarding 32 bit conversion to 64 bit for a mac

MAGGIE MISNIK
hello apache open office.

i enjoy using your product.  can you tell me if open office will be converted to 64 bit as now required by apple in the below statement, please?    i just upgraded to catalina today and my spreadsheets will no longer open.


About the transition to 64-bit technology and how it affects 32-bit apps.

Apple began transitioning to 64-bit hardware and software technology for Mac over a decade ago, and all modern Macs now include powerful 64-bit processors that can run advanced 64-bit apps. These apps can access dramatically more memory, enable faster system performance, and take advantage of technologies that define today's Mac experience, such as Metal graphics acceleration<https://support.apple.com/kb/HT205073>.

Apple has been working with developers to transition their apps, and in 2018 Apple informed them that macOS Mojave would be the last version of macOS to run 32-bit apps.


please advise.  thank you.

maggie

If you look at the list of system requirements at
https://www.openoffice.org/dev_docs/source/sys_reqs.html you'll notice
that the Mac version nowadays is 64 bit only.

Since you are not subscribed to this list you may not see all the
replies to your query. To subscribe to Apache OpenOffice mailing lists
go to http://openoffice.apache.org/mailing-lists.html

As a courtesy I have sent a copy of this reply to you as well as to the
mailing list. Do Not reply to me personally but just to the list at
<[hidden email]> - replies to my personal email address
will be ignored.
