Will NeoFinder run in macOS Mohito?

Very likely, yes.

When?

We cannot say, as we have no time machine. Unfortunately… ;-)

For macOS 10.14, Apple has done some very unusual things extremely late in the beta period, like the addition of the completely undocumented "AppleScript Cage" in Beta SIX!

You can find more technical details about this massive new problem here:

Also, at the time of this writing, there is no date available when Apple plans to actually release that major new release of macOS.

And last, Apple has made a lot of other undocumented "under the hood" modifications that are creating a lot of problems with regular Mac applications.

We are very very concerned about the stability of all these late and undocumented changes made in macOS 10.14. This is really similar to the failed Windows Vista, which by the way had the development codename "Mojave". Go figure.


Because of this, we will do the following:

Two days AFTER Apple has released the final version of macOS 10.14.0 (to make sure they don't pull it back like they did with some iOS betas recently), we will download and install that version on our test setup. That will usually take two or three days.

Then we will run NeoFinder 7.3 through the complete and exhaustive testing plan, and see what happens. This will take about two weeks.

If we need to make changes to get around new behaviour or new bugs in macOS 10.14.0 (Final), we will release a version 7.3.1 with the fixes needed for macOS 10.14, of course.

Should you upgrade your Mac to macOS Mohavre?

No.

If you use your Mac at work, no, not at this time.

Wait at least until 10.14.3 or better 10.14.4 have been released by Apple.

Really.

If it doesn't matter for you if your Mac or your applications crash a lot, just update to macOS Moojava immediately ;-)
