Pro Recompiled open source version 2 can run on Mojave in 64-bit
Version 2.x was open source and so can be recompiled to run on Mojave 64-bit with some source code modification. Thanks to the author who left some old code that works well in 64-bit. But 64-bit has some restrictions. QuickTime.framework is not available so Xee will not open QuickTime files.
You can download and try 64-bit Xee build here.
