I have recently heard a solid rumour that a 64-bit compilation of OpenInsight project has just recently begun. It is still very early days, but if all goes well Revelation will be shooting to include this in version 9.1 which ‘could’ be released in around 12 months time.
With an steadily increasing number of end-users asking for tighter support for 64-bit machines, this is something that every OpenInsight developer will be pleased to hear. At the present time, we do not normally have any issues running on 64-bit servers, so long as the registry settings are configured correctly. However, this release will certainly enable us to tick the 64-bit box on our proposals.
If you are not yet coming up against the 64-bit question, you will no doubt be asked about it sometime very soon. For this reason, now is definitely the time to get your application up to version 9.x and ready for a full 64-bit version of OpenInsight.
