Introducing Tumult Hype v4.1 with Apple Silicon and Big Sur compatibility

Tumult Hype 4.1 is a significant update to the HTML5 animation builder for macOS, supercharged with the latest macOS tech advancements.

Tumult Hype 4.1 on macOS 11 Big Sur

What’s new in Tumult Hype 4.1:

  • Built for Apple Silicon: Tumult Hype is built as a Universal application that will run natively on Apple Silicon and older Intel-based Macs. Using one of Apple’s new “M1”-based Macs will make your animations fly.
  • Compatible with macOS 11 Big Sur: A new icon, improved color scheme, and many UI tweaks make Tumult Hype a natural citizen of the newest version of macOS. Don’t worry if you’re not ready to upgrade your system; it still runs great on OS X 10.10 Yosemite and later.
  • Source Editing Improvements: Tumult Hype’s sister app, the HTML editor Whisk, just went through a major update. We’ve brought those source editor changes back to Hype for an upgraded HTML and JavaScript coding experience along with new interface preferences.
  • Bug Fixes: versions 4.1.0 through v4.1.2 include over a dozen other assorted fixes.
