Re: Sweet Home 3D 6.0
Tonight, the Beta 11 gets closer to the final release even if translation process may slow down its arrival...
It brings some various improvements like:
- the ability of total price labels displayed under the furniture list to stack on each other if there's not enough space to display their content.
Enough space:


Not enough space:


- a tooltip associated to the Arc extent field in Wall dialog box, to display the length of the middle arc of a wall when its arc extent is not 0


- the ability to enter a minimum height of 0 for sloping walls
- the support of ARM 64bit Windows in Sweet Home 3D installer as proposed by arm64appcompatguy
- the ability to select 32 bit or 64 bit architecture in Windows installer user interface when it's run under Windows 64 bit, without the need to use /os.arch and /j3d.version options from the command line (these options are still available if needed).


Under Windows 10 64 bit, the 32 bit option is selected by default in the hope it will solve the problems of people who can't run Sweet Home 3D. So, pay attention to this option if you want to run Sweet Home 3D 64 bit under Windows 10.
- Under Mac OS X, Sweet Home 3D DMG installer comes with a private copy of Java 8 to avoid being obliged to install Apple Java 6.

This Beta version brings also some important bug fixes:
- furniture and texture libraries loading under Java 10 now works (thanks to Jiri Slaby's suggestion)
- HiDPI screens are much better supported under Java 8 without the requirement to define a scale and change Swing look and feel. System property com.eteks.sweethome3d.resolutionScale is still supported if you want to apply an additional scale to Sweet Home 3D user interface.

Finally, to allow you to test the features bound to installers, here are some Beta versions you can download and test:
- Windows installer: see updated Beta 12 version
- Mac OS X installer: SweetHome3D-6.0.beta11-macosx.dmg (66 MB)
- Linux 64bit installer: SweetHome3D-6.0.beta11-linux-x64.tgz (65 MB)

Hans, I hope that version will work for you!
