Is KymaConnect compatible with macOS 10.15 (Catalina)?

+1 vote
I recently upgrade to macOS 10.15 (Catalina) but now KymaConnect does not work. The Preference Pane works as expected but when I click RUN the status LED shows red for a short while, then it stops. Does KymaConnect have a compatibility problem with Catalina? If so, will there be an update?

KymaConnect 1.X is not compatible with macOS 10.15. It is designed to work on systems running OSX 10.6.8 (Snow Leopard) through macOS 10.14.6 (Mojave). It will not be updated to run on Catalina.

There are many changes in macOS 10.15 that impact software, like KymaConnect 1.X, which was designed and built to run on a older releases of OSX and older Macs. There are new software libraries that should be used, new installer requirements, and mandated 64-bit operation; macOS 10.15 is the first version of macOS that no longer supports 32-bit software, which some older Macs require.

We are working on a successor KymaConnect product. It is a new product, with a new design incorporating the many changes required to work on macOS 10.15. The new KymaConnect product includes most of the features of KymaConnect 1.0.2, but it will no longer include CapyLink, nor any other specific Capybara support. We cannot say at this time when the new product will be available, but will announce the upgrade policy and costs when the new product is closer to its release.

We will edit this answer as new information becomes available, and to let you know when beta testing begins. We will also make announcements on the Delora Software Twitter feed, @DeloraSoftware, using the hashtag #KymaConnect.
