OS X Yosemite is now available, and if you rely upon any Red Sweater apps, you’ll be happy to know that we are good shape with compatibility. I’ve been running the beta releases for a few months and fixing little things here and there as I run into them. For the most part, Apple made this an easy transition for me, and I hope it will be an easy transition for all of you as well!
There are only two issues, both with MarsEdit, that I would point as possibly needing fixing, but they shouldn’t impede your normal use of the app:
- The script menu icon doesn’t draw right in “dark mode.” If you flip the switch in System Preferences to favor a dark menu bar with white text, you will find that in MarsEdit the Script menu icon continues to draw darkly. This is rooted in a problem that Apple apparently plans to fix in a future update.
- The “vibrant” translucency currently applies to the categories table in the post editor’s options side bar. I’m not sure it’s appropriate for this to happen, and it seems distracting to me. I plan to arrange for this content to always draw opaquely in a future update to MarsEdit. In the mean time, if the translucency bothers you in MarsEdit or in other apps, you can turn it off across all apps by selecting the option under System Preferences > Accessibility > Display to “Reduce transparency.”
Hopefully those little quirks are the extent of issues with Yosemite. Please do let me know if you run into anything else.
