Hello all,
just want to tell you that I have brave done the update to 10.13.5 and do have no (NO) problems to report about the latest update of macOS and WeatherCat V301B5. By the way, have I ever told you folks that I am really loving WeatherCat?  ;D ;D ;D



Cheers, [biggrin]

Is there a WeatherCatter out there who has a Fusion Drive that has upgraded to High Sierra? I would just like some assurance that doing so will not impose the new file format on my Fusion Drive before I make the move.

I'd been using the beta for quite some time as my profile indicated and had no problems directly attributable to 10.13.5. As Reinhard indicated, it's solid.


Can't help with your other question, Blick, I have an SSD and back-up to an SSD, both running APFS.

Inspired by Reinhard (it used to be Steve who was the first WeatherCatter in the world to upgrade his hardware with new software, but he is now deep into retirement, camping, road trips across America, having fun, talking to his wife, etc.), I took the plunge about 3 hours ago and upgraded to macOS 10.13.5 from 10.12.6. It went flawlessly, my fusion drive is still happy, and so am I. Apple announced today in the Keynote that APFS will be supported on fusion drives beginning with Mojave, coming this fall.

By the way, WeatherCat 3.01 ran 38 days without interruption until I shut it down for the os upgrade. It has now been purring like a cat for 90 minutes on the new setup.

I have a fusion drive and no problems.  I am still waiting for the AFS to come out for the fusion drives.  Right now they  are not.  So if you do update to High Sierra and have a fusion drive like  I do, it works fine. Kind of anti-climatic.     I have WC among other things and it works fine.

Do be aware, however.. that you need to know that 32 bit apps /programs are not going to necessarily work.  Apple is going the way of the 64 bit programs.  Yeah, a pain in the tush.

Same here.

I, on the other hand, am having problems with MacOS 10.13.6 and Weathercat 2.4.4: Weathercat has frozen twice now.  Watchdog tries to restart, and I end up with two Weathercat icons in the taskbar, but no open windows; force quit indicates one active Weathercat "not responding".  I can kill it and restart, and it sticks again.  Kill it a second time and it restarts, opens the windows in "safe" mode, lets me shut down gracefully, at which point I can restart cleanly.   Other application running is Yummy FTP watcher (used to transfer images to (Wunderground), which also appears to be locking up.  Not sure which is cause and which is effect or if an interaction is the issue.  I will leave Weathercat running and Yummy off and see if Weathercat locks up on its own to try to answer that question.

Welcome to the forum cjp. Not quite sure what is happening with you there, but WeatherCat 3 is a 64-bit application and has loads of improvements from 2.x.

There is a new version?  Will investigate.  Thanks for the tip.  App said there is no new version.  Checked it carefully every time it restarted,  Probably an email in a junk folder somewhere...

Dear cjp, Blick and WeatherCat troubleshooters,

Let me also welcome you to the WeatherCat forum!  :)

I, on the other hand, am having problems with MacOS 10.13.6 and Weathercat 2.4.4: Weathercat has frozen twice now. 
. . . .

Unfortunately, you are pressing your luck trying to continue with WeatherCat 2.x and the latest version of macOS.  WeatherCat 2.x is no longer being actively supported and macOS is changing rapidly.  I think you need to choose between WeatherCat 3 or rolling back to an older version of macOS.

WeatherCat 3 is a paid upgrade, but has a 30 day demo mode.  You can learn more about it at this description page on the Trixology website:

Cheers, Edouard

So I upgraded last night to 3.0.1.  The new version also locked up under MacOS 10.3.6, running on its own.  Came to it this morning, and all the windows were gone, the icon was just the cat, not the temp, no network activity.  Force Quit and restarted.  Uploading historical right now, but I need some help here.  Where do I start?   Is there a log hiding somewhere I can ship someone?
