64bit

Here's the scoop from Apple, and more details from Wikipedia.

Translation:
10.14 ("Mojave", the current OS) fully supports 32bit. I have tested kJams on 10.14, and found it to work just fine. So even though Apple says “[32 bit] with compromises”, I have found no compromises with kJams. It will periodically tell you the app is not optimized, and instruct you to contact me. Rest assured I know about this.
10.15 ("Catalina", due out around September 2019) will NOT support 32bit

DO NOT UPGRADE to 10.15 (Catalina) until kJams itself tells you it's safe to upgrade!

There is no timeline: it will be done when it's done. I've hired a helper now to make it go faster.

FYI: the current 32bit kJams will continue to run on older systems, and be maintained for the foreseeable future

Windows Users

You got nothin' to worry about, since Windows continues to support 32 bit apps, and probably won't stop for a very long time.
After the 64bit transition, you will be automatically upgraded to the 64bit version of kJams.

Sorry for any confusion.
