Max OSX Mojave and Metal

mac

#1

Hello

I don’t know if anybody knows the answer to this yet; I understand that Apple is deprecating Open GL in the new Mojave and will no longer develop it. I am a long term Mac user and Sketchup is my main design program. Is Sketchup going to still be developed for the Mac using Metal or am I going to have to gently and painfully transition to using Windows?
Oh, also for the moment has anybody experienced any issues with Mojave 10.14 and Sketchup pro 2018

many thanks

Dan

A very serious question without a good answer available yet. At this point Apple has not set an absolute deadline for discontinuing OpenGL, though they imply maybe 2020. It is still available in Mojave. Trimble has also not announced what if anything they will do when/if OpenGL is no longer available on macOS. They will not be alone in raising a stink at Apple over this unilateral decision, as OpenGL is one of the industry standards for portable graphics.
