Hi, any update on when the M1 native APP version could be available?

Not yet, sorry, the focus is now on releasing the next version and then to move over to a later Java version to address a number of issues that still exist on the Mac.

Thank you for the update.  Makes sense.  As long as everything works with Rosetta2, we should be ok for the time being.

Hello,

I just bumped into this sticky post from almost 3 years ago:

APP utilising macOS/METAL frame work

Do you know when this will be happening?  I noticed that APP could probably be much faster when utilising different frameworks from Apple/SWIFT such as Accelerate, CoreImage, CoreGraphics and Metal.

After using APP now for a while now, I see and appreciate its powerful kernel and enhanced options on data processing. The resulting images are great!  The GUI is a little tricky and not always very clear. For example, I would like to (un)select and scroll through the fits files in the table by the arrow keys and spacebar, respectively. Also selecting and whole bunch of files and selecting or unselecting them with shortcut keys would make the usage so much more convenient. Looking at the table and filtering the files by clicking at each file by mouse is very slow and cumbersome. Maybe there is a way to do this and I have not found it yet?!

Hi.  I'm putting APP 1.083.2 on a MacBook Pro I7 running Monterey 12.3.1.  I followed the above instructions (deleting all previously downloaded installers and copy of the program, verified that settings allowed apps from verified developers).  My error message is "AstroPixelProcessor can't be opened because Apple cannot check it for malicious software.  This software needs to be updated. Contact the developer ..."

Several attempts yield the same result.  What should I do, please?

Mmm, so if you delete this downloaded DMG, set the security&privacy and then reinstall it still doesn't work? Was this MacOS update recent?

Your summation is correct.  I don't remember when the MacOS update was performed, probably 2-3 months ago is my best guess.  This is a machine that I only use while traveling so I updated it then and haven't used it since.

I have had APP installed on my desk machine for more than a year and am using it successfully.

@cooperwalls it works on my MacBookPro 14“ with M1 Pro and the latest macOS.  I had no problem with the installations.

APP does not take advantage yet of the M1 architecture or the macOS optimized APIs or libraries like CoreImage or Metal.  Hopefully, this will come later this year.

Strange, we've not had reports yet that this is a big issue at the moment. The next beta will be here within a week I expect, that will have a much better notarization etc. so should pass without any issue. I hope you can wait for that?

@vincent-mod I can wait without any problem.  I did go through all the steps again (it's not insane to repeat something if only to verify the problem, right?) and got the same result.  Very curious.  Thanks for the help.

@cooperwalls have you tried a "right-click" on the Installer and then select "Open..." Any unsigned app, including installers, can only be loaded onto an M1 Mac using Monterey in this way.

If you ever get that message, the next step should be to "right-click>Open..." that will allow you to end-run around the Mac security protocol.

I'd suggest the new beta version. 😉 This should pass without any extra settings to set.
