Is there such a thing out there yet? As the resident crash test dummy I installed Big Sur on my Mac and I think I have everything working except the XMF client which doesn't give me any errors. It just won't launch.

That is the software we use on our Javelin CTP so I guess we have a license. I've never used Fuji/XMF support so I have no idea where to start. Also I'm not a big fan of calling support no matter where on Earth it is located.

Fuji/XMF support is actually pretty awesome. I miss it, since we cancelled our Maintenance a while ago.

Check it out, I'll be curious to know too, as I hope to get new Macs in here before long and will need compatibility.

So have not heard back from XMF support. This is why I hate all tech support. Awesome support? Wonderful support? Balderdash! Or maybe it is just me. :blind:

Why, when I called them last night did they ask me if I was calling from Walmart? The people that work in the plate room told me every time they call they also get asked if they are calling from Walmart. Weird.

I have found out from my friend Google there is a version of the XMF client for Big Sur. Why does XMF not have a website where you can download software? I have found their support website where they have downloads. Below is the extent of their downloads.

sorry Joe, I hope you get a good tech
there are a couple that really are very good

So they did just call me. There is no XMF Client for Big Sur yet. Maybe by September but that is only a guess on their part. So Big Sur will be supported about the time Apple releases macOS Monterey. So they are staying a full version behind. Have they been taking lessons from Kodak?

Seems the google page I found about Big Sur support was for other Fuji software and not XMF.

We called them [Fuji] Yesterday, and the representative was getting a lil p*ssed defending theirselves by saying Apple surprised everyone out of the blue with a big number of problematic changes...

We didn't even want to rustle his jimmies  :azn:

He also vaguely said something along the lines of "maybe by autumn"
So that's coming from European tech support, as well.

"Maybe by autumn" is also the official release Date for Monterey tho..
EDIT: oOh, Joe just pointed that out.

In what may be a worlds first Kodak beat them in supporting Big Sur in Prinergy. Still waiting on Preps to be fully compatible but that is supposed to happen in July.

Meh, I won't be getting new Macs with Big Sur any time soon anyway. Shoot, I just got the OK to add 16GB of RAM to our 4-year old machines to try & keep 'em running for the duration!  ::)

We just got a beta version this morning and so far, it runs just fine on Big Sur!
