Current Known Issues & Areas of Concern

  1. 32-bit applications will no longer be supported as of Catalina.  Launching these applications has resulted in a warning message within High Sierra and Mojave.  (Most common applications in use at Middlebury have been 64-bit for years.)
    1. MathType 7 - FAQ (MathType 8 is planned as a 64-bit app)
    2. Audacity - 2.3.3 and older not supported
  2. For Terminal users, the default shell is "zsh", rather than "bash".  Bash is still available.
  3. KaleidaGraph is currently still a 32-bit application and will not run under Mac OS 10.15. A 64-bit version is under development, although it will not be released before Catalina and we do not have a release date at this time.  KaleidaGraph will still run under Mojave (10.14) and earlier versions of the OS.
  4. SPSS running on Catalina info : https://developer.ibm.com/predictiveanalytics/2019/10/08/spss-statistics-on-catalina-macos-10-15/
  5. Pro Tools is now 64-bit, but some functionality is still limited.  See here for more info.

Resolved Issues:

  1. Spartan:
    Update to version Spartan’18 v. 1.4.4 Before upgrading to Catalina.
  2. Adobe Creative Cloud 2020 is compatible.  
  3. Sophos pre-approved for access to file system.
