I have good news

First, I just saved a bunch of money on my car insurance by switching to GEICO.

Second, I believe I’ve found the problem that makes the updater crash. If I’m right, it was a pretty simple should’ve-retained-that bug in Sparkle. If the fix works, we’ll have a 1.1.1 out sometime soon—if all goes well, within the hour.

Sorry about all this, people. But those of you who came to the IRC channel to help us find the problem, thank you very much.


  1. Nice work!

    Will updating from 1.1 to 1.1.1 through Sparkle work, though? If it will still crash people already on 1.1 will have to do it manually. How are these people going to know a new version is out?

    Or can it be resolved with some clever appcast magic?

  2. still nothing 🙁

  3. what’s happening with the update?

  4. i have to ask, because i’m a cynical conspiracy theorist: was that geico ad a paid viral marketing thing?

    what has become of us that an innocent little joke like that carries so many commercial implications!?


  5. I like the Geico thing. LOL
