This is for all of you using Picard on macOS: Since macOS 10.15 Catalina there are new security restrictions in place requiring all apps to be submitted for a malware scan to Apple. Trying to start current Picard releases there for the first app shows a big security warning. While it is possible to manually circumvent these warnings, this is not obvious for most users.
I have now integrated the necessary steps for letting Apple aprove the app into the Picard build process. So far it is looking good, but I can only test on a single machine myself.
Hence the question for help: If you are using macOS 10.12 or later it would be great if you could try running the app MusicBrainz Picard 2.3.0.dev1_osx_xcode11.2_20191108234016 macOS 10.14.dmg.
I am specifically looking for the following:
- If you use macOS 10.15 Catalina, does the app start and run without showing the security warning?
- If you use macOS 10.12, 10.13 or 10.14, does the app start and run? I am especially interested in whether this app still runs on macOS 10.12 and 10.13.
If you test the app please let me know your results and the version of macOS you are using.
Please note: This is a development build and might contain bugs and not full completed features. For this specific case I am mostly interested in whether the app runs or not, so if you just test opening the app and see if it runs in general this is fine. Of course you are also welcomed to test and experiment this development build in general, but do so at your own risk.
Thanks a lot for your help.
