Chips without legs . . .

Apple have just announced they will be transitioning to ARM chips:

What has LiveCode got hiding under Kevin's sofa?

"Programmers will have varying degrees of difficulty rebuilding their software for Arm-based Macs
while continuing to support Intel-based Macs that will still be used for years."

Every few years Apple makes some sort of change that requires deep revisions for all developers: 69k to PPC, Classic to OSX, PPC to Intel, Carbon to Cocoa, 32 bit to 64 bit.

This is just the upheaval du jour, and I can't imagine the LC team wouldn't handle this as well as they've handled all the previous upheavals before.

Well: I've lobbed them some money, and I hope everyone else will manage something:

Because, if LiveCode don't keep their heads above water we might all drown in a sea of ARM chips.
