It looks like it will... I grabbed this snapshot of the Core Audio page on Apple.com

Very intriguing stuff:

I'm no big fan of limitations and just out of curiousity i have to ask.
Why on earth would you need an audio file to be bigger than 4 gigs?

I'm not going to bother with the maths but isn't that like 45 minutes of 24 bit 96 kHz 5.1 audio ?

If you're recording full length concerts at hi sample-rates, the lack of filesize limitation will definitely be welcome.

Oh yeah...

So, that means that this has already been implemented... but isn't supported by any DAW programs yet.

Interesting....
