I know this has been brought up time and time again, but with windows 11 officially going to be 64 bit only, will BYOND finally move to have a 64 bit version? Ubuntu server 20.04 has dropped MOST(not all) support for 32 bit. We may have a few more years of 32 bit support left on windows(I believe windows 10 is supported till 2025).


They're dropping support for 32-bit *processors*, not 32-bit *applications*. https://www.windowscentral.com/windows-11-announcement
Steam is 32-bit as well, among many other examples. Not that this isn't still really really wanted, but it's not any rush because of Windows 11.

Okay, what I read just said support for 64 bit only, but different sites will word it differently. Either way, hopefully discussions are happening about native 64 bit support. We see people wanting more than 2 GB of RAM.

That's still limited to 4GB. Certainly better, but no replacement for 64-bit.
In response to Exxion
Agreed. Also there are a lot more benefits to having 64 bit support at least.
