Apple announced macOS 10.12 Sierra at WWDC yesterday. The current direct versions of Feeder and Together will not open on Sierra, because of changes to Gatekeeper, which validates the integrity of apps before allowing them to be opened.
The following downloads for Feeder and Together are identical to the current direct versions, but will launch on macOS Sierra.
IMPORTANT: If you purchased Feeder or Together from the Mac App Store, you should not download the above, and continue to use the versions installed by the Mac App Store.
Please also note that these have not been tested in any other way on macOS Sierra other than to confirm that they will open. Reinvented Software apps will not be officially supported on macOS Sierra until it is released.
These changes will be included in future versions of the apps, so you won’t need to keep downloading special versions in future.
Together with iCloud Drive on macOS Sierra
macOS Sierra also introduces a new feature where iCloud Drive can make your Desktop and Documents folders available on all your Macs. If you are using Together from the Mac App Store and store your libraries in iCloud, you should either avoid storing your library folder in your Documents or Desktop folders, or not use that feature. Together works with iCloud directly and all the files in Together iCloud libraries are already stored in iCloud, so this feature would both interfere with Together’s iCloud support and double the space used on iCloud.
To move your library:
- Choose File > Library > Show Library in Finder from the menu
- Quit Together
- Move the folder that contains your [Library name].trlib file to a new location
- Double-click the [Library name].trlib file to open that library in the app again
It is also possible this feature will corrupt all Together libraries that end up stored in iCloud Drive, regardless of whether they are what Together considers to be iCloud libraries, should more than one Mac attempt modifying the library at the same time. You should not expect iCloud Drive to work as a method of sharing Together libraries across Macs, and you will not be able to open those libraries in Together for iOS.
The good news is that after the release of macOS Sierra, Mac apps sold outside the Mac App Store will be able to use iCloud properly, but there may be restrictions on where the library folders can be stored.
