our recent user survey indicates that fewer than 5% of our users still use 32bit systems to run Dynare. Only about 2% do not also have access to a 64bit system in addition to the 32bit system they operate. To conserve resources currently devoted to maintaining the 32bit architecture, the Dynare Team has decided to stop supporting 32bit systems starting with version 4.7 to be released in 2021. However, this decision is not completely set in stone yet. Therefore, we ask users to provide feedback here.
- Yes, supporting only 64bit is the right decision
- No, continued 32bit support is important
