PhotoLine for Intel based Macs

Post by maho »

Hi Martin & Gerhard,

Are there any plans to release a PhotoLine binary optimized for Intel-based Macs? That seems to be the way Steve Jobs is taking his company. Would such a version run much faster than the Universal binary?

Thank you.

An Universal Binary contains a binary for Intel-based Macs. Or do you mean something different?

I was under the perhaps mistaken assumption that an Intel optimized binary would be smaller or faster than a Universal binary.

An Intel only version would be significantly smaller than an universal binary, but not faster.

There's probably a simple utility out there to do this by now, but here's how to "thin out" universal binaries:

Personally, disk space is cheap. I wouldn't bother.
