Scribus and macOS Big Sur
« on: October 23, 2020, 04:59:09 am »
Just curious if anyone has tried running the latest build of scribus 1.5.6.svn on a developer/beta preview copy of Big Sur?

Any comments on how it runs?

In case anyone else is wondering.

I setup up macOS Big Sur 11 Beta 10 and downloaded Scribus 1.5.6 svn (r24102) :

https://sourceforge.net/projects/scribus/files/scribus-svn/1.5.6.svn/Scribus15xNightly_Mojave-20201025-r24102.dmg/download


When I tried to launch the software, I was presented with a message "Scribus15xNightly can't be opened because Apple cannot check it for malicious software".

Im guessing its because the package has not been notarized since it's not an official release. Nonetheless you can bypass this by simply control-clicking the app and open the first time to allow it.


I have not given it any intense usage just yet, but Scribus does indeed run on macOS Big Sur 11 Beta 10, and seems to be stable - which is very good news!


I will report any issues I come across.
