I was looking at the XNU source code today (don’t ask) and stumbled upon this line in a particular file (https://github.com/apple/darwin-xnu/blob/0a798f6738bc1db01281fc08ae024145e84df927/libsyscall/Libsyscall.xcconfig) SUPPORTED_PLATFORMS = macosx iphoneos iphoneosnano tvos appletvos watchos bridgeos I can tell you what all of those are including the new Bridge OS that powers the Arm chips on Continue Reading
Another Mac beta is up. I have fixed all the crashes that came in on the last beta.
There is a new beta of the Mac client with all of the recent fixes and addition of group messaging. I know there are still a few issues, for example it doesn’t save the password for auto joining a bookmarked group. Im curious to see what other issues people encounter. Continue Reading
