I just recently switched from a Windows box to a Dual G5 Mac. So I havenīt followed threads in this forum - please forgive me if this topic has already been discussed.

Dose anyone know if LW8 will support the 64Bit processors of the G5??

thanks

Newtek is going to port the Mac LW code to Apple's XCode development environment (likely right after the 8.0 release). Although the initial release of 8.0 probably will not have specific support for the G5 and 64-bit, once the port is complete (probably 8.1 or something) there will be significant acceleration for the G5, and by utilizing XCode they will have improvements as well when compiling applications.
Short version: Not specific to 8.0, but soon.
