Nice to see native AS support is in progress 🙌🏻. Any realistic ETA for the release?

No ETA since arm64 support in FileBot requires arm64 support in all 3rd party dependencies, many of which have not been updated in years. The x86_64 binaries are known to work well via on arm64 via Rosetta binary translation though.

FileBot_4.9.5_arm64.pkg is now available for testing:
https://get.filebot.net/filebot/BETA/


:!: Optional dependencies that aren't available for aarch64 (e.g. fpcalc / AcoustID) are not included and won't work.

The fpcalc executable is still x86_64 (used exclusively for AcoustID) but other than that it's all arm64. The arm64 JRE runs things ~3x faster compared to x86_64 JRE under Rosetta.

Well, Rosetta translation working correctly at all for just-in-time compiled code, at only a 3x performance penalty no less, the Apple engineers really outdid themselves there. IMHO, that's the really impressive thing here! :o There probably won't be a noticeable performance difference between running FileBot on a high-end macOS M1 machine and a high-end Windows / Linux machine with Intel or AMD inside. :lol:

fpcalc has now shipped arm64 binaries as well, so the arm64 bundle is now arm64 only.
