Many issues using Adobe's framework it is so invasive I see why Apple quarantined it. I have Goalscape working online.

I would like to know if there are any plans to port over to a more modern framework?

    Hello David

    Welcome aboard – sorry you have had trouble.

    You have a 12-month Unlimited subscription for the web application Goalscape Online. It requires the latest Adobe Flash Player installed on your computer and Allowed/Enabled in the browser. Since Safari has known issues with all Flash applications, we recommend using Mozilla Firefox or Google Chrome browsers – and Chrome uses its own Flash plugin, so it is always up to date.

    There are more details about Goalscape Online in the attached pdf.

    We are developing Goalscape 3.0 as a fully functional cross-platform web app, using html5 and Javascript, along with technologies like Web Components. We will let you know when there is a beta version for you to try.

    Goalscape Desktop is a separate (yet compatible) product: all the software and data are on the local machine (like Word or Excel). It uses Adobe AIR to allow the same software to run on both Mac and Windows machines. If you want to try Goalscape Desktop you can easily unquarantine AIR on your Mac using the steps on our on our Known Issues page (under 'Issues with Adobe AIR under macOS Catalina').

    We are investigating implementing a captive runtime version of AIR that will make Goalscape Desktop independent of the local AIR environment (this means there will be different software downloads for Windows and Mac).

    Enjoy the journey – and stay safe
