Is it really a bug or did Apple intentionally change things that happened to break compatibility? Might not be a bug, and just the outcome of system changes to macOS

It never used to be this way with Apple, but unfortunately, this is what they’ve become.

Yes it did. People have ALWAYS said this.

I remember Snow Leopard wiping out people’s entire home folders. And 10.2.8 killing Ethernet. Etc.

I’ve been saying this for a year now and it still holds true: if you rely on your Mac for work, you can no longer trust Apple.

I have lost all faith in Apple’s ability to release software updates that do not break critical functions. There has not been a single major dot release in the last two years that has not broken something critical to my workflow. Not a single one.

After High Sierra is stable, I will not update my Macs for nearly a year until the next OS has stabilized. It never used to be this way with Apple, but unfortunately, this is what they’ve become.

Man, I wonder if it just broke with the final version of the software or if Duet wasn’t beta testing. That sucks just updated and I was using Duet with the Ekahau site survey and designing floor plans.

Not a bug at all; 10.13.4 only supports displays which are directly connected by a GPU or by AirPlay.

Removing the clutter. Like battery estimates. I still modify battery menu to output battery Time predictions on 10.12.6 even tho they scrapped it after .1 or .2 or something

Apple can’t come up w new features so new features has to be taking away features.

Quality control team still moving into the spaceship also some of them crashed into the glass doors anyways it’s a mess.

I’ve known that Duet doesn’t work with MacOS 10.13.4 because I’m in the beta software programme from Apple. Duet have known about this problem for a while too, and they’ve told me they’re actively working on a fix, which should be released shortly. They’re pretty good at responding to emails and the message I got was that they are releasing a fix, and although Apple broke it with the latest update, I didn’t get the impression that they were waiting for Apple to fix it.

Maybe Apple broke it because they’ll have their own native duet soon? And they wanna pave the way for getting people off of it now?

Hmmm….I use one every day for work (network engineer) and I would not have it any other way.

My only real complaint is when I have to use my USB to serial adapter to console into piece of equipment on site. USB-C to USB-A dongle, Keyspan USB-A to serial dongle, null modem cable to device or serial to ethernet to device. It is quite the frankestein setup in those cases….but it works every time.

I live in Omnigraffle Pro, Safari, Terminal, Secure CRT, mail, Excel, Word, etc.

What bothers me is why would they make a change like this that breaks software in a point release.

I can actually understand software breaking after a major release, like Sierra -> High Sierra. But point releases should be about bug fixes and small changes, not major API changes that can completely break software.

With major releases, software devs have a lot more time to get their code working with the new OS during the beta period. With point releases, they have a lot less time.

What the hell, Apple?
