Can you verify that the API for PF8 is compatible with the API supported by the downloadable "Path Finder 5 SDK".
That is, if I use the Path Finder 5 SDK to generate a plugin, will it work with PF8?

Thanks.

    The PathFinder 5 SDK does NOT compile using xCode 9.4.1 on OS 10.13.5 . Lots of complaints about 32-bit targets, localization files that need to be marked UTF-16, deprecated use of 'isa', and so on.

    Assuming you are still using all these utility classes for PathFinder 8, could you re-release the SDK with updated versions of the utility classes as well as the example plugins?

    I just want to chime in here… Unfortunately, interest in Path Finder plugin SDK was so small, it didn't justified resources for keeping in going, so it started dying slowly since PF 6 was released.

    Besides, we're in the middle of changing complete design and plug-in structure in PF, abandoning Distributed Objects and going towards XPC services and that transition will take some time. Once it's finished, we'll reconsider publishing again completely rewritten SDK.

    Thanks for your understanding regarding this issue.
