UPGRADE to MacOS Sierra? CAREFUL please!

Postby Matthias Guenther (Quark) » 12 Sep 2017, 09:29

Hi all,

as every year, please allow me to remind you of having a backup – or better a clone – of your current production machine, if you plan to upgrade to the newest version of MacOS once Apple releases it on Sep 25, 2017.

As there is no built-in way to revert to an older MacOS, please create a clone before upgrading:

Though we do not know of any serious issues of QuarkXPress 2016 or QuarkXPress 2017 with the last beta of High Sierra, Apple might do substantial changes still before releasing it.

As every year, we will need to test the release candidate of Apple's newest version of MacOS, so High Sierra aka 10.13, before being able to certify it. Certification takes typically 5 to 21 days after the final release of a new version of MacOS (same is true for Windows).

We will most likely release the Update for QuarkXPress 2017 that adds High Sierra support on Oct 6, 2017.


P.S.: Always have a recent backup!
