Today's the last day to contribute to Mars
M3 (unless there are exceptional circumstances).
Wanted to call attention to those contributions
with some part "disabled". It is not the end of the world if
they can not be re-enabled for M3, but I wanted to be sure none were simply
"oversights" in changing the files.
Second, I should have announced this
earlier, but if you haven't heard, there have been changes imposed by an
outside Operating System maker. Apple changed it's "signing rules"
recently, primarily for Yosemite, (10.10) but actually went in to effect
in latest release of Maverick (10.9.5). There are two critical bugs where
the work on our end is being tracked:
- Change location of eclipse.ini (for Max OS X signing)
- Need to update "Mac signing service"
Both of them "tough bugs". The "bottom
line" for Mac executable signing is that it is not going to be possible,
for M3. Users can still use the various "run
anyway" work-arounds for unsigned executables,
and with lots of luck (and effort from many skilled people) I hope we can
get signing re-enabled for M4.
