Apple has been releasing to developers regularly the new builds or fixes to their OSX.   I am guessing that since WC is  64bit it should do just fine.

Now if he isn't dealing with that, well...  someone probably will.

 Hi Steve, cool name! Welcome to the WeatherCat forum.

I've been retired ten years now. Don't listen to these guys; I've never once wished that I was back working again.  ThU5:-)

I have SiLabs Extension version 5.3.5 loaded on my iMac running 10.15.7 (latest version of both.) I still get the occasional popup notification that it will not work with the next version of Mac OS. Same with the extensions on my Drobo, Logitech Harmony remote app, and something else I don't recall right now.

I don't plan to update to Mac OS 11 anytime soon.

Hey, thanks for all the thoughtful replies.

I am using SiLab Version 5.2.4 which works great with Mac OS Catalina 10.15.7.
The SiLabs revision history up to 5.3.5 didn't indicate to me anything about compatibility with Mac OS 11 Big Sur so I did not upgrade.

Thanks again, Jeff

Confirmed. Changing the regional number separator to "none" corrects the issue.

Another big welcome from me, Jeff!

One of the easiest ways to check the Silab version is to Option Click the Apple icon in the menu bar. You should see the “About This Mac” changed to “System Information...”. When that information window opens, look in the side bar, under Software and select “Extensions”. If you’re on 10.15, these titles may be slightly different. I’ still using 10.14 and I don’t even have my Mac mini in the house! It’s been in the AppleCare repair for over two weeks!! [rolleyes2] [coffee] [banghead]

Will WeatherCat 3.1.0 work under the new Mac OS Big Sur which is expected to be released shortly?


WeatherCat runs fine (at least here) - one of the underlying changes in WeatherCat 3.1.0 was to adopt the hardened run time which is necessary to run on 11. But we won't know for sure until the OS is released.

However, the OS is currently a mess IMHO, and drivers are in a worse state. I'd advise avoiding at least the first official release (or two) if you want stuff to continue to work.

Cheers,
Stu.

General Computing/Macintosh / Which driver? (Re: WeatherCat and Mac OS 11 Big Sur)
« Last post by elagache on October 20, 2020, 11:16:09 pm »
Dear Jeff and WeatherCat faithful,

Since this is your first posting on the WeatherCat forum by all means welcome! 

Will WeatherCat 3.1.0 work under the new Mac OS Big Sur which is expected to be released shortly?

There has been no word from our fearless leader (Stuart Ball, WeatherCat developer) as to Big Sur compatibility.  Is anyone running the Big Sur beta and WeatherCat at the moment?

For my Davis Vantage Vue weather station to run on my iMac I use the SiLabs USB Driver which I believe is a kernel extension (kext)
I receive notices periodically that it will not function under Big Sur.

Which version of the Silicon Labs driver are you running?  You can get instructions on how to download the latest driver on the WeatherCat Wiki:

https://wiki.trixology.com/index.php?title=Obtaining_the_latest_drivers_for_use_with_Davis_data_loggers

According to the Silicon Labs website, the latest release is version 5.3.5 released on February 25, 2020.  If you are running the latest version and are still getting warnings from macOS then presumably none of us Davis USB users can upgrade until Silicon Labs updates their driver.

Do let us know which version of the Silicon Labs driver you presently have installed.

Once more welcome!

Cheers, Edouard  [cheers1]
