macOS 10.10 and 10.11 support added

I am pleased to announce that a version supporting macOS 10.10 (Yosemite) and 10.11 (El Capitan) has been added to the downloads section. That gives us a total support range from 10.10 to 10.15.

macOS 10.14.6 Mojave specific issue

If you’re trying to run the current version of Tubulator in macOS 10.14.6 Mojave (or the coming Catalina), you will see the following complaint in a macOS dialog:

“Tubulator 2.app” can’t be opened because Apple cannot check it for malicious software.
This software needs to be updated. Contact the developer for more information.

The complaint is due to a security hardening in the newest Mojave version (and Catalina). I will fix the required changes in the coming release — the app needs to be “notarized” apart from the code signing it’s already going through..

In the meantime, there’s a workaround.

  1. Right click on the application icon.
  2. Select “Open”
  3. You’ll see the same dialog as before, but this time you have the option to “Open” or “Cancel”. Click “Open”.
  4. The app launches.

Windows Installer Progress

Success. Finally managed to install and successfully run the app on a Windows 10 install with no development environment. This means I can now distribute to a couple of users for testing.

Version 1.1.0 preview for Mac

A 1.1.0 preview is available for download at https://tubulatorapp.com/tubulator/Tubulator%202.app.zip

The Windows version is done as such, but packaging apps on Windows is a royal pain. That’s what I’m currently dealing with.

Almost There

Windows installer is done. For the time being you’ll have to suffice with a 32 bit version, since the 64 OpenSSL libraries are not as easy to integrate as I imagined. A few more minor windows issues to be fixed, but then I’ll be happy to release it. Since I have no experience code signing Windows apps (yet), this will be an unsigned release – you know, the kind that says the application is from an unknown developer.

On the Mac side, I just received my renewed Apple Developer Program approval today, and this time in the company’s name. The old certificate expired earlier this year, so no way around it.
Good times, even though the experience was a bit uphill. Apple don’t fool around.
I hope to have a code signed version ready for release within a couple of days from now.
