ARM64 / Apple Silicon Compilation for macOS

My understanding is that Bootstrap Studio uses Electron under the hood. Is there any reason the macOS version is still only being compiled as an Intel binary rather than a universal binary that will run on ARM64 for people will Apple Silicon? Electron has supported that for a while now. It’s basically the only app left on my system that is still running Rosetta 2 emulation.

I am happy to share that we have an Apple Silicon build internally and it will be part of our 6.3 release next month.

The reason it took us a while is because our update/license system also needed reworking, and we had quite a few other features to finish first.


Fantastic news - super happy to hear it will be part of 6.3!
