This release marks the discontinuation of support for macOS 10.15. This decision aligns with Apple and Qt's cessation of support for these older macOS versions, officially designating them as End-of-Life (EOL). We recognize that some users may face challenges in upgrading their systems to the latest macOS Sonoma 14.0. However, our commitment to delivering the best user experience, leveraging the most current technologies, necessitates this transition away from supporting outdated versions. We appreciate your understanding and are dedicated to assisting our users through this change.
