BiblioMaker 7 is a deeply overhauled version of our application. After more than 30 years of continuous evolution, the program needed a complete change of the internal engine in order to rely on the most modern technologies and guarantee their durability, as well as optimal performance.
Our team of programmers undertook this redesign two years ago and that's how we will directly jump 3 generations of the internal 4D database from v15 to v18. This provides 100% 64-bit execution, essential for compatibility with the latest macOS version Catalina, and the ability to manage very efficiently an almo...
Due to the release in October of the new macOS 10.15 Catalina, we remind you that BiblioMaker 6.2 is not compatible with this operating system and will stop working if you install it. Only BiblioMaker 7, soon available in beta version, will be compatible.

This model can be configured with different processors as well as with different amounts of RAM and disk sizes:
Preferably choose an Intel Core i5, possibly i7 processor. 8 GB of RAM will be sufficient if only 1 server application is running on the machine with a data file not exceeding 2 GB, otherwise choose 16 GB. A 128 GB SSD disk should be sufficient in most cases, as well as...
