I managed to upgrade my development machine (Mac mini M1) to macOS Monterey Beta 8 and it seems that our apps work without any compatibility issues, besides the toolbar icons. These will be fixed in an upcoming release.
We have decided that Github may not be the best place for users to report bugs. This is because our users are mostly regular users and not developers. Also, having everything in one place makes my job easier to fix new issues rather than managing several separate issue trackers.
With that, we have moved the issue to our own support forums. Each app will have it’s own bug tracker. When filing a issue, they will now have their own fields that the user needs to fill out. This will give me enough information to find the bug or resolve a question the user may have. You may also attach crash logs and screenshots, but not videos. Videos take too much space and needs to be uploaded elsewhere.
Note that using the support forums require registering an account or logging in using a Github account. More logon options will be added soon.
The support forums is located at https://support.malupdaterosx.moe
How to file an Issue
- Go to the respective issue tracker for the app you want to create an issue on (e.g. Shukofukurou for iOS, Shukofukurou for macOS, Hachidori). Feature requests do not belong in Issue tracker, they belong in Feature Requests. Also, you can attach any screenshots and crash logs to the bug report.
- Select a prefix, either Bug or Question. It will default to Bug.
- Describe the bug in the title and describe it further in the message box.
4. Now, describe how to reproduce the bug, specify the Operating System, OS version and App version. For Shukofukurou for iOS, you need to specify what device you have. All these fields are required.
5. Submit the bug report. When I fix the bug and you confirmed it, mark it as a solution to close the issue.
Note that Github issue trackers will be disabled now that the support forums now exist. We will be updating the links in our apps soon to reflect this.
It’s been a while since we released an update for Hachidori since March, but here we are now. Hachidori 3.3.4 is now released with some bug fixes. Namely, it has to do with the season detection as some titles weren’t being detected properly.
This update is now available for users to download or update through the update feature. Also, Shukofukurou for iOS/iPadOS 2.2 Beta should hopefully be out later this week on TestFlight for active patrons. We had some trouble getting the app approved since AniList started requiring two factor authentication, thus causing login issues with the test account. The test account will now use MyAnimeList, so hopefully there shouldn’t be any more issues.
Yep, there has been a couple of oppsies, but that allowed us to also squash another bug involving Kitsu. Apparently, some titles do not have start/end publishing/air dates, causing the app to crash. This bug is noticeable on the iOS version, but nobody filed a bug report. Updates for the Mac and iOS version will be coming out shortly.
In addition, to make life easier in dealing with bugs and providing customer support, I will eventually create a support forum that will support all our apps based on Xenforo as it has a suggestions and bug reports module built in. The discussion and issues tabs will eventually be disabled on the Github repos in the future once the new forums are open. Also, I will be removing email customer support as all support related questions will be done on the forums. The support links will be updated once the support forums are set up this fall.
Shukofukurou for macOS 3.5.3 is now released. Hopefully, this is the last 3.5.x build. This fixes a recently discovered bug where the add popover doesn’t appear for MyAnimeList users in the Season view. This bug is also fixed in the 3.6 release as well. The public beta is available here.
The change log is below.
This release has minor bugfixes
Requires macOS 10.13 or later
Bug Fixes and Enhancements
- Fix adding of titles from the Season view when user is using MyAnimeList as the current service
A public beta of Shukofukurou for macOS 3.6 is now out. This release finally takes advantage of macOS Big Sur’s new design language. It also adds new columns, which allows users to customize what information to show in the list view. This release is expected to also support macOS 12 Monterey when it release this fall.
Why we are dropping support for macOS 10.15 Catalina or earlier?
It’s been a bit difficult to keep maintaining the app for older versions of macOS. It’s mostly because I have moved on to more recent version of macOS. Not to mention, since Apple will be leaving Intel behind in the next few years and Apple Silicon being the future, I want to take advantage of the newest APIs.
The 3.5.x branch will be maintained for some time for only bug fixes. For App Store users who need to use the older version, you can request a serial number. You need to send in proof that you have purchased the Shukofukurou app for macOS on the App Store by screenshooting the purchased list with the app listed. Send this email to chikorita157 at ateliershiori dot com with the name you want to use for the registration. Note that the App Store version will only have the version only compatible with macOS Big Sur or later.
The beta is available for download on Github.
