Is Keka Compatible with the new Apple M1 Chips and MacOs Big Sur?

Just released the final silicon build: https://github.com/aonez/Keka/releases/tag/v1.2.2

I don't have a DTK nor a M1 Mac yet, but should work as expected :)

I'm using Keka on a M1 Macbook Pro; it's running natively with no problems If you're using an M1, the activity monitor will show either Apple or Intel under the architecture column.

markbyrn, thanks a lot for the feedback! So it’s showing Intel for some Keka processes? Which ones?

I was browsing the forums for a question and came across this post, decided to share what I see here with a new Mac mini M1.

Installed Keka 1.2.4, first a list of all the compressing binaries and architecture:

Code: Select all

keka7z:     Mach-O universal binary with 2 architectures: [x86_64:Mach-O 64-bit executable x86_64] [arm64:Mach-O 64-bit executable arm64]
kekabrotli: Mach-O universal binary with 2 architectures: [x86_64:Mach-O 64-bit executable x86_64] [arm64:Mach-O 64-bit executable arm64]
kekalbzip2: Mach-O universal binary with 2 architectures: [x86_64:Mach-O 64-bit executable x86_64] [arm64:Mach-O 64-bit executable arm64]
kekalrzip:  Mach-O universal binary with 2 architectures: [x86_64:Mach-O 64-bit executable x86_64] [arm64:Mach-O 64-bit executable arm64]
kekalzip:   Mach-O universal binary with 2 architectures: [x86_64:Mach-O 64-bit executable x86_64] [arm64:Mach-O 64-bit executable arm64]
kekapbzip2: Mach-O universal binary with 2 architectures: [x86_64:Mach-O 64-bit executable x86_64] [arm64:Mach-O 64-bit executable arm64]
kekapigz:   Mach-O universal binary with 2 architectures: [x86_64:Mach-O 64-bit executable x86_64] [arm64:Mach-O 64-bit executable arm64]
kekaplzip:  Mach-O universal binary with 2 architectures: [x86_64:Mach-O 64-bit executable x86_64] [arm64:Mach-O 64-bit executable arm64]
kekatar:    Mach-O universal binary with 2 architectures: [x86_64:Mach-O 64-bit executable x86_64] [arm64]

kekaunrar:  Mach-O universal binary with 2 architectures: [x86_64:Mach-O 64-bit executable x86_64] [arm64:Mach-O 64-bit executable arm64]
kekaxz:     Mach-O universal binary with 2 architectures: [x86_64:Mach-O 64-bit executable x86_64] [arm64:Mach-O 64-bit executable arm64]
kekazstd:   Mach-O universal binary with 2 architectures: [x86_64:Mach-O 64-bit executable x86_64] [arm64]
And then finally when running a compression (I didn't find a way to upload the image to this forum, just fix the space before .com):
