OS Compatibility

macOS High Sierra (10.13)

We cannot provide support for the use of our products on versions of macOS that are not in general public release.

If you are using a pre-release version of macOS 10.13 and encounter difficulty, please first check to see whether the symptom occurs when running the most recent public release of macOS 10.12. If it does not, report a bug to Apple, and they will contact us as necessary.

32-bit compatibility: Since Apple has explicitly stated that macOS High Sierra will run 32-bit applications, there is no immediate compatibility concern. We do plan to release a 64-bit version of BBEdit, which we expect to have ready well before OS support becomes an issue.

As always, we recommend keeping your OS up to date, in order to get the latest fixes and improvements from Apple.
