Helix 6.1’s macOS products are available as Universal binaries, running natively on older and newer Macs running macOS. Helix Server 6.1.11 supports Clients running natively on three distinct Mac OS platforms: Intel, PowerPC, & Classic.

Helix Engine

There are no changes to Helix Engine; the current version remains 6.1.10.

Helix RADE 6.1 is a Classic application. (Helix RADE 6.2 is Intel-native.) There are no changes to Helix RADE 6.1.10; the current version remains 6.1.10.

About Helix 6.1

Helix 6.1 represents the second stage of our work in updating our code for macOS. Helix Server, Helix Utility and Update Collection were released as macOS native products in Helix 6.0. Helix 6.1 brings Helix Engine and Helix Client to macOS native status. Helix RADE remains Classic for the time being. All products except Helix Server are also available in a compatible Classic version.

How to Upgrade

Helix RADE 6.0 & 6.1 owners are encouraged to join the Europa Pioneer Program, where the Intel-native RADE is currently available by subscription.

Owners of Helix 6.0 licenses are entitled to free updates to version 6.1.10 of Helix Server for PowerPC, Helix Client for PowerPC, and Helix Engine for PowerPC. Those who wish to run Intel native code must purchase the full upgrade. Those running on Intel Macs who do not want to purchase an upgrade can run the PowerPC Helix products using Apple’s Rosetta emulation software. Rosetta is available for Mac OS 10.4–10.6.x; it is not available in macOS 10.7 or later.

Helix products for PowerPC use existing Helix 6.0.x keys. To update, simply download the program you need and apply your existing keys to them. If you have lost or misplaced your keys, log in to your account and click the Current Keys link. If you have any questions about this upgrade policy, please contact us.
