Version 3.5 of Stitch Painter is compatible with Macintosh OS Catalina and Big Sur. W This initial upgrade is a phased release of the software. We are releasing this in phases so our Stitch Painter customers can be operative on the new OS.
All critical functions are in the software and the less important ones continue to be added and thus you will receive update versions as we progress.
Technically, this is a 'beta' version. Although tested, it has not reached a full audience yet. Rest assured that we will address oddities as they come up.
If you are upgrading from other than version 3/3.1, please email us if we haven't already posted other upgrade options. firstname.lastname@example.org
