Max compatibility with MacOS 11 Big Sur


    Jan 15 2021 | 11:57 am
    Hello,
    I would like to know if Max 7 and earlier are compatible with MacOS 11 Big Sur. I suspect not, but it is sometimes useful to be able to run earlier versions.
    Max 8.18 is running great so far :-)
    Thanks in advance, Benjamin

      Hello again,
      Ok, I found the answer ("No") by poking around a bit more. Here are the details, in case anyone else is wondering:
      Max 7 : Mac OS X 10.7 - 10.14 Max 6 : OS X 10.5 - 10.11 Max 5 : OS X 10.4.11 - 10.7.1 Max 4 : OS X 10.3.9 - 10.4.11 (10.4 recommended)

      I took delivery of an M1 Mac Mini last week. Max 8.1.8 is running without difficulty under Big Sur in emulation. I believe Cycling is suggesting late 2021 for a Big Sur-native release.
