Yet Another New Sigil-0.9.8 Mac Package

Mac Users

Due to bugs in how I built Qt and a few related issues to Qt plugins, the support for PyQt5 plugins was broken even though it was supposed to be one of the main new features of Sigil-0.9.8!

So just today (April 10th) I have replaced the Sigil-0.9.8-Mac-Package.dmg with a fixed version that should now do what was promised in the original release. It has the added-benefits of improved code-signing so that OS X Sierra (10.12.X) Gatekeeper is now happier as well and one Accessibility improvement to stop Text Cursor Blinking if needed.

If you are hit by any of these issues, please feel free to download and install the latest Sigil-0.9.8 Mac Package. Don't forget to check the Checksums after downloading and/or test the code-signing on both the dmg and on Sigil.app itself.

Code:
shasum -a 256 Sigil-0.9.8-Mac-Package.dmg
should result in:

Code:
cd54a70314df223bad7a1c6d5322b012ddf3402ead14e11b88372165ca66decf  Sigil-0.9.8-Mac-Package.dmg
You can also verify it passes its code-signing tests:

For the dmg:

Code:
spctl -a -t open --context context:primary-signature -v Sigil-0.9.8-Mac-Package.dmg
should result in:

Code:
Sigil-0.9.8-Mac-Package.dmg: accepted
source=Developer ID
and for the installed Sigil.app (assuming you copied it to Applications

Code:
cd /Applications
codesign --verify --deep --strict --verbose=2 ./Sigil.app
should result in a long list of all the signed code and then end with:

Code:
./Sigil.app: valid on disk
./Sigil.app: satisfies its Designated Requirement
Hope this helps. I apologize for not testing the first released binary on the latest Sierra before releasing it but security on OSX is changing quite quickly.

The dmg on the v0.9.8 release page IS the latest build. The previous two builds have been removed and are unavailable for download. If you download the dmg from the 0.9.8 release page and its sha256sum matches the checksum from the Sigil-0.9.8-CHECKSUMS.sha256.txt file on the 0.9.8 release page, then the dmg is the very latest build.

Sigil v0.9.8 was released on March 21st. The Mac package (dmg) of 0.9.8 was subsequently updated twice since then because of build issues. The last time on was April 10th.

There is only one official version of Sigil 0.9.8 currently available to download--and it is the latest. If you're unsure whether or not you have the latest ... redownload the 0.9.8 dmg (and verify with the latest checksums file) and you will.

Update April 10th
The Sigil 0.9.8 Mac Package has yet again been updated to hopefully now
work as intended (and for as far back as OSX 10.9)

** Please note the Checksums file has been updated to reflect the new checksums

Simply click on the dmg file to download the latest.
