Title-free Touché

Tue, 29 Nov 2016 14:24:04 +0000

I have been impressed by the response to Touché, my macOS utility for testing Apple’s Touch Bar without the need for Xcode. What’s surprised the most is the number of people asking for minor usability changes. These are not the kinds of things you fret about when you’re using a utility here and there for […]

Introducing Touché

Mon, 14 Nov 2016 15:00:00 +0000

When Apple announced the new MacBook Pros, featuring a hardware Touch Bar above the keyboard, I was immediately intrigued. Apple provided a “simulator” to developers, so they can get a sense for how the Touch Bar works, and test their own apps with the Touch Bar, without having to buy a new MacBook Pro. The […]

Automatic Window Tabbing

Sat, 24 Sep 2016 17:05:06 +0000

I wrote recently that there were no known problems with our apps on macOS Sierra. It turned out I had overlooked one subtle aspect of the update, which did have a negative impact on two Red Sweater apps. Automatic window tabs grant the ability to almost all apps on the Mac to organize multiple documents […]

macOS Sierra Compatibility

Tue, 20 Sep 2016 17:40:30 +0000

macOS Sierra (12.0) went live today. There are no known issues with any of Red Sweater’s apps on the new OS. I have been running macOS Sierra on my personal development Mac for several months, and it’s been a pretty solid update both with respect to Red Sweater apps and with respect to most other […]

Second Level Of Security

Fri, 20 May 2016 13:22:58 +0000

An issue MarsEdit users are running into with increased frequency is a challenge, when trying to connect to a blog, for a “second level of security” password. This panel is usually only displayed when a blog has been configured with an HTTP Basic protection to ensure it is completely private: However it is recently being […]

FlexTime 1.3.1: Animation Fix

Tue, 17 May 2016 19:40:57 +0000

FlexTime 1.3.1 is now available from the FlexTime home page and will be submitted for review by Apple for the Mac App Store. This update addresses an issue which snuck in somewhere along the way, causing the animated “pie chart” progress indicator to stop animating if you increase the size of a window while a […]

MarsEdit 3.7.7: Flickr Privacy Checkbox

Mon, 11 Apr 2016 15:40:14 +0000

MarsEdit 3.7.7 is now available from the MarsEdit home page, and will be submitted to Apple for update on the Mac App Store. In MarsEdit 3.7.6, I changed the behavior of the Flickr photo browser so that it only showed “public” photos. I had received some requests to omit private photos from the list, and […]

MarsEdit 3.7.6: Lots Of Bug Fixes

Tue, 08 Mar 2016 16:24:11 +0000

MarsEdit 3.7.6 is now available from the MarsEdit home page, and has been submitted to Apple for update on the Mac App Store. I recently took the opportunity to go through a long list of open bug reports against MarsEdit, and discovered a good number of items that I felt motivated to finally take action […]

MarsEdit 3.7.5: Secure Sparkle Updates

Thu, 25 Feb 2016 22:50:44 +0000

MarsEdit 3.7.5 is now available from the MarsEdit home page, and will be available soon for update on the Mac App Store. The main purpose for this update is to respond to security concerns with the Sparkle software update mechanism that MarsEdit uses. Although Red Sweater uses a custom version of Sparkle, it was vulnerable […]

Prematurely Published Drafts

Fri, 19 Feb 2016 21:14:56 +0000

A WordPress bug was brought to my attention in which changing the publish status of a post from “Draft” to “Published”, while also giving the post a specific date, for example to schedule it for the future, would cause the post to be unexpectedly published immediately, instead of scheduled for the future date. I looked […]
