De release notes bevatten altijd een link naar deze opsomming. De meeste gebruikers zullen niet geïnteresseerd zijn in deze specifieke fixes, voor hun is 'improved security' voldoende informatie.
Daar heb je gelijk in, de meeste gebruikers interesseert het niet.
Maar we zijn hier toch op tweakers? Waar we ook de security updates vieren of dat we willen weten waar we vatbaar voor waren.

/edit
In plaats van wat er in 10.15.4 en 10.15.5 is geüpdate, is het misschien beter om de security updates te tonen.

[Reactie gewijzigd door wica op 20 juli 2020 18:25]

Waarom de features van 10.15.5 er ook bij staan? In ieder geval gewoon installeren vanwege de security patches als je al op Catalina draait.
Deze is al een aantal dagen uit, deze download melding komt iets aan de late kant.

Ik ben benieuwd of deze patch ook de kernel panics bij sleep fixed. Ik had in een eerder tweakers.net artikel al meegekregen dat het euvel in Big Sur al was opgelost.
Dat lijkt volgens diverse berichten inderdaad het geval te zijn in 10.15.6

Ik ben aan het updaten, hou m'n vingers gekruist!

edit: so far so good, nog geen kernel panics gezien na 3 sleeps waarvan 1 langer.

of ouder en met meer getweak (:-)) als je op dosdude1 googled....
FF Off topic... Heb zelf win 10 op mijn mid 2011 27” mac en draait nog prima ;)

Wel jammer dat apple niet die “oude” hardware meer ondersteund op zijn nieuwste os. Snap wel dat het een keer over is maar goed. Nog ff we gaan naar arm based mac’s dus win 10 zal dan wel geen optie meer zijn.
Mijn dagelijkse werk doe ik op een Mac Pro 3,1 (dus uit 2008), gepatched naar 10.14 Mojave, met dank aan dosdude1. De videokaart uit die tijd kan geen 4K scherm aansturen, dus daarvoor gebruik ik een minimale, maar wel fanloze GT 730. De HDD is uiteraard vervangen door een SSD. WiFi en Bluetooth geüpdate naar versie 4 door middel van een nieuw kaartje omdat AirDrop dan werkt 8) en vooruit – een PCI USB 3 kaartje erbij gezet.

De dagwaarde is maar een paar honderd euro maar het is nog steeds een prima computer.

Ik heb 10.15 / Catalina ook al eens geïnstalleerd – uiteraard ook met patcher – en ook die werkt, maar dan krijg je weer dat sommige oudere apps niet 100% 64-bits blijken te werken.
Sinds de install van 10.15.6 op mijn Macbook Pro early 2015 13" is deze uiterst instabiel, In het bijzonder in combinatie met een extern display (blijft constant zoeken naar een juiste resolutie).
Door terug te gaan naar 10.15.5 is dit opnieuw opgelost.

Op dit item kan niet meer gereageerd worden.
