MarsEdit 4.0.2: Minor Bug Fixes

December 12th, 2017

Since I released MarsEdit 4.0 last week, I’ve been grateful that no major issues have been reported. A few minor issues have been reported, and I decided to release an update now to get those problems ironed out before too much time passes.

MarsEdit 4.0.2 is available for download from the MarsEdit home page and the Mac App Store. The version jumps from 4.0 to 4.0.2 for direct-download customers, because some quick Mac App Store-specific fixes warranted a version bump last week.

Here is the list of changes common to MarsEdit 4.0.2 in both the Mac App Store and direct release versions:

  • Revise toolbar popup menus to use the same rounded button style as other buttons
  • Fix a bug that caused some error sheets in the main window to be presented in wrong location
  • Fix a crash that could occur if preferences are not writable for some reason

One fix applies only to the direct download version:

  • Fix app registration URL handling so it works even when the app was not already launched

And one fix applies only to the Mac App Store version:

  • Fix a bug in which validating an app for discount upgrade could spin forever

Let me know if you run into any problems with the update!
