Deluge in 64 bit ?

Postby Pascal007 » Tue Mar 24, 2015 1:18 pm

I hope I'm not asking a stupid question, but I did search for "64 bit" in the forum and I didn't find any recent mention of this.

So I've recently begun using Deluge, and I see in "Activity Monitor" that Deluge is 32 bit... One of the only 32 bit process on my Mac in fact. Obviously, I have a 64 bit processor (2,6 GHz Intel Core i7) running a 64 bit OS (Yosemite 10.10.2).

I looked and it seems there's only one possible download for Macs. Would it be possible to offer a 64 bit version of Deluge ?

Building OS X For 64bits used to be easier than building for 32bits... (Haven't tried for a while, was a time where I couldn't even manage to produce a 32bits version)
But because 64bits versions only works on 64bits OSes, while 32bits works on all, and because maintaining both versions is an extra burden, Deluge OS X is only 32bits for now.
And from what I know, but maybe I'm wrong, a 64bits version won't bring anything more to Deluge than a 32bits...
