In response to growing concerns over its OS X support, Coda Music has noted that Finale 2003, which is due later this summer (after the release of the Windows version) will operate as a Classic application under OS X, providing "full access" to its new features: "Coda is strongly committed to delivering a Native version of Finale for Mac OS X as quickly as we can... Finale Macintosh is undergoing an array of architectural improvements that will benefit all Macintosh users as well as facilitate full OS X implementation. A number of these changes will be apparent in the release of Finale 2003, available in the summer of 2002. Finale 2004, scheduled for the summer of 2003, will be a Native OS X application."
