Re: Version 1.2.5 released

Unmounting of APFS-formatted DMGs stopped working all of a sudden. I tested it immediately after installation, and it worked fine, and now I have two DMG volumes that won't unmount. (One of them worked before.) Hmmm…

But otherwise: thank you for the update!

Re: [INFO] Mojave: UF_DATAVAULT / [Q] ACLs [DONE]

Another thing: Apple actually forces you to use the ACL method, if you want certain functionality. Way back when, maybe on Mac OS X 10.5. or 10.6 they removed the UNIX flag uunlnk (user no-unlink); it's still in the XNU source code, but commented out: https://github.com/opensource-apple/xnu/blob/mas...

Possible to search for extended attributes?

Is there a way to use Nimble Commander's Find dialog to search for extended attributes? For example, you have tagged files with "com.apple.metadata:Tag1" and "com.apple.metadata:Tag2" etc., and you want to quickly find the files with tags as xattr, or want to find all quarantined files in your home ...

Re: [INFO] Mojave: UF_DATAVAULT / [Q] ACLs [DONE]

I understand. Would be cool, though. :) And yeah, ACLs are actually pretty great. Apple uses them too for some system locations. I use them a lot on important folders, e.g. in my home directory like ~/Applications, ~/Developer, ~/Developer/Applications, ~/.cache, ~/.local, ~/.local/bin etc. It's a s...

Re: [INFO] Mojave: UF_DATAVAULT / [Q] ACLs [DONE]

If you do change your mind at some point in the future, the interface would be straight-forward, something like this.

In the meantime, maybe I can cook up some solution for myself.

Re: [INFO] Mojave: UF_DATAVAULT / [Q] ACLs [DONE]

Thank you! Too bad about ACLs, though. I actually use them, mostly to restrict write access to certain folders, e.g. Desktop. Apple seems to use them a lot to protect default system folders, also in the user's home folder. It's actually an awesome tool to have finetuned control over your system. But...

Re: Development stopped?

What about touch bar support? :lol: I'm hearing it's all the rage these days ;) I use BetterTouchTool, and it's actually amazing what you can do with the TouchBar. Apple themselves are lazy, so when people just see the default TouchBar implementation, I can understand that they believe it's just a ...

Re: [BUG] Eject not working properly with APFS-formatted disk images

You should probably do that immediately after mount, right? Not at the moment the user gives the eject command, so the user won't notice any speed difference. (?) But this would only be for disk images; for other media, you can't do a true "eject" anyway, unless it's a DVD etc. SSDs remain plugged-i...
