Version 2 of Google’s Flutter toolkit adds support for desktop and web apps

At an online event, Google today announced Flutter 2, the newest version of its open-source UI toolkit for building portable apps. While Flutter started out with a focus on mobile when it first launched two years ago, it spread its wings in recent years and with version 2, Flutter now supports web and desktop apps out of the box. With that, Flutter users can now use the same codebase to build apps for iOS, Android, Windows, MacOS, Linux and the web.
“The big thing that justifies the major version number shift is, of course, the availability of web and desktop support,” Flutter product lead Tim Sneath told me. “And that’s just a fairly profound pivot. It’s rare for products that you suddenly have all these additional endpoints.”

He noted that because of Flutter’s open-source nature, web and desktop support had been “cooking in the open” for a while, so the

Amazon switches on macOS Big Sur for AWS

Delay may be the deadliest form of denial, but Amazon’s decision to introduce Mac support via AWS illustrates Apple’s growing importance in enterprise IT, as vendors across the board follow the money.Big Sur in the cloud
That importance is this week reflected by Amazon’s decision to offer macOS Big Sur in the cloud within AWS. The company originally confirmed plans to offer Big Sur support in early December when it first introduced support for Macs in the form of a fleet of Mac minis. Now, it seems those Macs have been upgraded and Amazon has introduced support for macOS Big Sur in its cloud.To read this article in full, please click here

Mac utility Homebrew finally gets native Apple Silicon and M1 support

Popular Mac tool Homebrew has long been used by developers and others for package management on macOS, but as we lamented in our first M1 Mac review, it didn’t support Apple Silicon when Apple’s new Macs first launched late last year. Now, with the release of Homebrew 3.0.0, that’s no longer the case: Homebrew now supports Apple Silicon natively, albeit not with every package.
The volunteer Homebrew team made the announcement on the Homebrew blog alongside today’s release. While the native support is not yet comprehensive, it bridges the gap significantly, and users can still run Terminal via Rosetta 2 to do what they can’t yet while running natively on Apple Silicon. The Homebrew blog post says “we welcome your help” in providing bottles for all packages moving forward.
Here’s the full bullet point on Apple Silicon in

Parallels Desktop 15 for Mac moves to Metal for DirectX 11 and more

Today, popular virtualization software Parallels Desktop 15 for Mac becomes available to new and current users. The flagship feature is support for DirectX in virtual Windows machines via Apple’s proprietary Metal graphics API. Other additions include a handful of new macOS Catalina-related features and improvements to transitions between Mac and Windows software running on the same machine.
When we wrote about Parallels Desktop 14 around this time last year, we asked about Metal support. The application then still relied entirely on OpenGL in macOS, and Apple had already announced that continued support for OpenGL would end. We were told it was coming, and we were not misled: the new version of Parallels Desktop now supports DirectX 9, 10, and 11 via Metal. Previously, DirectX 9 and 10 were supported via OpenGL and

GitHub gets a CI/CD service

Microsoft’s GitHub today launched the beta of a new version of GitHub Actions with full continuous integration and delivery (CI/CD) capabilities built right into the service. General availability is planned for November 13.
The company also today announced that it now has more than 40 million developers on its platform.
Ten months ago, GitHub launched Actions, its workflow automation platform. Developers could already take actions to trigger all kinds of events and use that to build custom CI/CD pipelines. At launch, the GitHub team stressed that Actions allowed for building these pipelines, but that it was a lot more than that. Still, developers were obviously quite interested in using Actions for CI/CD.
“Since we introduced GitHub Actions last year, the response has been phenomenal, and developers have created thousands of inspired workflows,” writes GitHub CEO Nat Friedman in today’s announcement. “But we’ve also heard clear feedback from almost everyone: you want CI/CD! And

Developer launches new version of Windows 95 that runs under Windows 10, macOS and Linux

Who doesn’t feel a little nostalgic from time to time? Progress is great, but sometimes it’s nice to look back at how things used to be — even if it’s only to laugh at how different and primitive things used to be. The world of computing is no different in this regard. Last year, developer Felix Rieseberg released Windows 95 as an Electron app to let 90s computer users relive their younger years. Now he’s back with a second version of the Windows 95 app, and it’s even better than ever — gaming classics such as Doom and Wolfenstein3D are… [Continue Reading]

Which Macs will run Apple’s macOS Mojave?

Apple removed several years’ worth of Macs from the list of supported systems when it unveiled macOS 10.14, aka “Mojave,” earlier this month.As the Cupertino, Calif. company has done before, its two-year cycle scratched out Macs that had been able to run the immediate predecessor, macOS High Sierra. Apple’s odd-even cadence has alternately retained the prior year’s models (odd-numbered years, odd-numbered editions) and dropped models (even-numbered years, even-numbered editions).[ Further reading: 40 tips to get the most from your Mac (and macOS ‘High Sierra’) ]In 2016, for instance, macOS Sierra (10.12) struck 2007’s, 2008’s and some of 2009 Macs from support. Last year, High Sierra (10.13) stuck with the same models as Sierra.To read this article in full, please click here

The next version of macOS is macOS Mojave

Apple isn’t done with macOS just yet. The company presented the next version of macOS at the WWDC developer conference. With macOS Mojave, Apple is leaving the mountain metaphors behind.
“Today we’re excited to take Mac a huge leap forward,” Apple CEO Tim Cook said.
Apple’s senior vice president of Software Engineering Craig Federighi started with dark mode. With a single setting, you can invert the colors of everything. Even the background of the Finder, Calendar or Photos is black, not just the Dock or menubar. Apple had to redo all the buttons and color schemed across the operating system. If you find white documents too aggressive, dark mode is for you.
With the next version of macOS, the wallpaper and desktop will adapt depending on the time of they day, from morning to afternoon and night. On the desktop, macOS can automatically stack all your documents in the Desktop folder by format.
