It would be nice if there was a 64 Bit Binary available for PlanetPress Watch/Server.

I agree, it would be nice. Unfortunately, the development environment we are using now does not allow us to create 64 bit applications.

That being said, our current 32 bit applications will run in emulated mode on 64 bit OS'es (just like 16 bit apps can run on 32 bit OS'es).

We estimate that converting our applications to 64 bit would give us a performance boost of about 15% in the best of cases. That's pretty good, but it isn't radically faster than the current versions.

Eventually, we'll be moving to a new, 64 bit capable development environment. But this will not happen before the next major release... or maybe the one after that...
