v14 and OS Sierra - Any real life issues

4D Tech mailing list
Hi,

The compatibility chart says “Compatible”  but not “Certified”. Any real life issues, show-stoppers, annoyances?

Both for Server and Developer.



TIA

Mitch

Main issue I ran into was running it on a new MacBook Pro with touch bar; you need 4D 15.4 or higher for that to work.  4D v 14.x just quits on you on a touch bar Mac.   (The workaround is to bring up a VM in a program like Parallels running El Capitan;  that will work, even on a touch bar Mac.)

On earlier Macs (pre-touchbar) with Sierra I haven’t encountered issues running an existing database, although I’ve not tried to do much dev work on v14 under Sierra so there may be development interface issues.

Although it is a bit tedious, you can work 14 on Sierra with Touch Bar.
It does crash from time to time (from 5 times in a day, to sometimes not at all), and whenever it does:
- Open MSC - Repair Structure
In 90% of the cases you will be able to work on.
Just save that 590 line method frequently…

As for accessing Servers, create an empty structure, open it and then connect to the server.
