macOS 10.15 Catalina Compatibility
The current release of SpamSieve (2.9.37) is compatible with the macOS 10.15 Catalina developer beta and public beta.
Because SpamSieve 2.9.36’s Software Update “Download & Install” command doesn’t work on macOS 10.15, it’s best to update to the beta version of SpamSieve before installing the macOS 10.15 beta on your Mac. You can also click the Software Update “Download” button and do the install manually, according to the instructions in the Read Me file.
Installing the Public Beta Version
We make a public beta version of SpamSieve available for compatibility with the latest macOS beta:
- Click this link (after installing SpamSieve) to join the public beta program and receive updates via the built-in Software Update… command.
- Click this link to stop receiving beta updates.
The beta release notes are available in the Software Update window and also in the Version History section of the manual (in the Help menu).
We do not recommend using a macOS beta on your main Mac, as there may be bugs that we have not had time to, or cannot, work around. With that said, we do welcome bug reports so that we can investigate any bugs and report them to Apple or try to develop workarounds. Please submit any feedback or bug reports via e-mail, rather than posting here.
When the new version of macOS is finalized and released to everyone, we (usually within hours) test SpamSieve with the release version and finalize the new version of SpamSieve. The new version is announced on the SpamSieve mailing list, blog, and Twitter feed and becomes available via the Software Update… command. It’s best to update SpamSieve before updating macOS. To prevent macOS from updating itself without asking you, go to the App Store section of System Preferences and make sure that Install macOS updates is unchecked.
