Does Feral have an up to date list of which games are updated to 64 bit, like Aspyr has?
Apparently not. At least I can't find anything.

The system requirements for Total Wahwahhammer 2 are out:

To play WARHAMMER II on macOS, you will need macOS 10.14, a 2.0GHz Intel Core i5 processor, 8GB RAM and a 2GB Nvidia GeForce GTX 680 MX, 2GB AMD R9 M290 or 1.5 Intel Iris Graphics 540 graphics card or better. The game is supported on all these Macs:
  • All 13" MacBook Pros released since 2016
  • All 15" MacBook Pros released since Late 2013 with a 2.3GHz processor or better
  • All 21.5" iMacs released since Late 2017
  • All 27" iMacs released since Late 2013 with a 2GB graphics card or better
    • Late 2012 models with a 2GB Nvidia GeForce GTX 680MX graphics card are also supported)
  • All 27" iMac Pros released since Late 2017
  • All Mac Pros released since Late 2013

Okay, seems I was wrong about no significant Mac news. I'm (to some extent) pleasantly surprised.

Apparently, Apple changed their mind about ending the MacBook Air (this message was pretty obvious back when they introduced the TouchBar MBPs), and actually redesigned that model. Retina Display – Yay! Shallow Butterfly keyboard – Booh! I think this unfortunately cancels out, so I wouldn't necessarily call the new MBAs an improvement. The higher price also doesn't make them really attractive (especially considering the woefully undersized 128 GB SSD in the "cheapest" model).

The new Mac mini seems to be a very good update. Conservative on the outside, but a lot of improvements on the inside. And it still has replaceable RAM. This is… a miracle. Also, far from affordable, though.

By the way: Apple has also silently announced Radeon Pro Vega GPUs coming to the 15" MBP in late November.

In Topic: 64-bit apocalypse

Feral seems to prepare for the 64bit apocalypse as well: they just reported that Medieval II: Total War has been updated to 64 bit (and Metal).

Pretty sure we'll at least get a significant bump to the iMac specs (he said hopefully)
I wouldn't rule out spec bumps, as these could be introduced within a few minutes on stage. I could also imagine silent updates, though, that just turn up in the Apple Store.

A new iPad Pro in the style of the iPhone X is pretty much sure. There is also speculation about new Macs (new Mac mini and a "low-cost" MacBook) but I'm sceptical: the new iPad is too much of an update to share the stage with significantly updated or completely new Macs.

The invites also seem to point to a focus on a tablet as a tool for artists.
