Mac Catalina support

Our enterprise is required to purchase Macs, and there are plenty of new Mac models now which cannot be downgraded to Mojave from Catalina.   Is there ANY way to get the ZCM agent to run on Catalina?   Is the lack of 32 bit support in Catalina the big road block in this case?   Is Catalina support going to happen any time in the near future?   In the meantime we are forced to deploy machines with no ZCM agent.   Is there a solution that doesn't involve scrapping ZCM and going with a different vendor for endpoint management?

Catalina Support is expected to be in ZCM 2020 Update 1, which is expected to ship this month.

Early Release Versions, which include Catalina Support, have already been deployed to those in the early adoption program.

Thanks for the reply.    How can we get involved in the early adoption program?

The ZCM 2020.1 early release project  is closed now, but for nearly every major release, we have something called a "LightHouse Project".

This involves testing early Betas and then working with the ZENworks Support team to implement the initial "Gold Code" into one's production environment and report back any issues discovered.  Then anything critical discovered is fixed prior to general release and patches are supplied to the LightHouse customers to get them patched up to the released version with any last minute fixes.

If you email "ZEN@Microfocus.com", I'm sure they would be more than happy to put you on a contact list for future releases, such as ZCM 2020 Update 2 which will likely ship near the end of the year.

I don't have an Exact ETA, but if I had to guess probably about 2 weeks..... Not this week, since I don't have my hands on an updated Gold Master to test.
