Will Mari 4.x be Mac compatible?
Mari has been updated to use the Qt5 UI libraries as part of our support for the 2017 VFX Reference Platform. Due to the nature of the Qt libraries, which are not created by Apple, the macOS version of Mari 4.x requires more development time to ensure a quality user experience. During Beta, we've seen a high variability of customer experiences based on the range of macOS versions. As such we need more time to investigate and decide on which bugs and macOS versions are key to support. Therefore, we are advancing Mari 4.x for Windows and Linux customers, as we keep working on the macOS version to make sure everyone's experience with Mari 4.x is great from the first version onward. Both Foundry and Apple feel that a quality user experience is important and worth the extra time involved. Thank you for your patience.
