Today Apple released macOS Catalina 10.15 GM Seed #1 Beta 11 (19A582a)

Catalina 10.15 GM Seed #1 is here! GM stands for Gold Master, this term is from way back when CD and DVD media was still a thing. The GM build was the final production version of the OS burned to CD or DVD. Now that Catalina GM Build is live, we should be very close to the public release of 10.15.

This article is meant to save you time going through the notes to find what is new and what is still leftover from the last beta. I went through both Beta 10 and the new Catalina 10.15 GM Seed #1 (19A582a) release notes to find all the changes. When Apple releases the next Beta patch notes, the previous patch notes are overwritten and taken down.

10.15 GM Seed #1 or Beta 11 ?

NOTE: I am calling this GM Seed #1 because it’s my bet that we will see a GM Seed #2. The evidence is that Apple is still calling this release.

I don’t know for sure though. Apple could just release the current build and change the name!!!

I for one really hope this is the case, as we still have some things that need to be addressed before launch.

This may be the final beta left to test. The public Release of Catalina is only a week or two away! You will want to get any bugs that you find into Apple now. If you get them in now, they could be fixed in the current beta cycle instead of waiting until after Octobers’s release date. If you wait it could be months before the fix is put into a dot release combo update.

Open Firefox browser on your Mac and click “menu” tab. On the drop down list select “add-ons”. Type in “DownloadHelper” on the search bar. It provides a way to write files to the disk. The only ways to write a file from a browser add-on is to use the downloads API which basically takes an URL and transfers the data verbatim to the downloads directory. Even if the downloaded data can be generated internally by the add-on, it is not suitable to writing big files like videos. Jul 06, 2020. Microsoft teams helper mac.

Just ahead of the launch of macOS 10.15 Catalina to the public, which Apple says is “soon,” Apple is asking developers to submit their Catalina compatible apps to the Mac App Store.

macOS Catalina will soon be available to hundreds of millions of users around the world. With macOS Catalina, your Mac apps can take advantage of Sign in with Apple, Sidecar, and the latest advances in Core ML 3, and Metal. And with Mac Catalyst, you can bring your iPad apps to Mac. Build your apps using Xcode 11, test them on a Mac computer running the macOS Catalina GM seed, and submit them for review.

In the invitation, Apple is encouraging developers to take advantage of the new features in Catalina, including: Sign in with Apple, Sidecar, and the latest advances in Core ML 3, and Metal, as well as Mac Catalyst, which allows developers to easily port iPad apps to the Mac.

Apple also reminded developers that for apps that will be distributed outside of the Mac App Store, of a new notarization requirement.

To further protect users on macOS Catalina, we’re working with developers to make sure all software, whether distributed on the App Store or outside of it, is signed or notarized by Apple. This will give users more confidence that the software they download and run, no matter where they get it from, has been checked for known security issues.

In June, we announced that all Mac software distributed outside the Mac App Store must be notarized by Apple in order to run by default on macOS Catalina. Make sure to test all versions of your software on the macOS Catalina GM seed and submit it to Apple to be notarized.

Apple also today seeded the golden master version of macOS 10.15 Catalina to developers, which represents the final version of the software that will be released to the public. It’s still not known when macOS Catalina will launch, but it could be as early as tomorrow.
