Catalina introduced new requirements for plugins. And unfortunately gave us very little time to respond to these things. And, just to add a bit of fun to the mix, end-of-lifed ALL of my macs
yes all five machines – backup server, build server, and 3 daily use machines fell behind the curve. I knew it would happen eventually – they’re all getting quite old – however I was a bit surprised they all went in one fell swoop. Ouch – my bank account hurts already.
That said, I am now catching up. You may have noticed a few days ago I posted about our first successful Catalina notarizations. It is, of course Stacks – which is our number one priority. Both release version and beta version of Stacks are working great in Catalina now. And since this tweet I’ve integrated Catalina notarization to the build server which should get all updates notarized as they’re being posted.
We expect to have all plugins notarized for Catalina before Catalina ships, but it will require rebuilding of many – a process that will take months, not weeks I’m afraid.
So for the time being I would not recommend running Catalina if you depend on RapidWeaver plugins other than Stacks.
