Hotfix for fre:ac on macOS 10.15 Catalina Print E-mail
Sunday, 13 October 2019 21:47

The fre:ac v1.1 Alpha 20190423a hotfix has been released to add support for macOS 10.15 Catalina.

In previous releases up to 20190423 it's not possible to select any files or folders in file open/save dialogs. It looks like this is caused by a broken open/save panel programming interface in macOS Catalina. Chances are that this will be fixed in a future macOS update. In the meantime, the 20190423a hotfix implements a work-around for this incompatibility.

The update is available in the downloads section.

 
Continuous AppImage builds now available Print E-mail
Thursday, 30 May 2019 12:43

The Travis CI system now creates AppImages for every commit to the fre:ac source repository. This means that you can now try the latest changes right after they land in the repository without having to build fre:ac yourself, for example to verify fixes or test new feature additions.

AppImages are distribution independent Linux packages that bundle most dependencies and should work on any modern distribution. To start an AppImage, just make it executable after download and run it:

chmod a+x freac-continuous-linux-x86_64.AppImage
./freac-continuous-linux-x86_64.AppImage

Packages are provided for the x86, x86-64, ARM and ARM64 system architectures making it the first time that fre:ac binaries for ARM/ARM64 systems are made available outside of the Snap store.

Get your AppImage at the downloads page or from GitHub.
