Release Vimalin 64 bits for macOS Catalina
(breathing) .. coming up for some air.
As apple released Catalina I had to switch gears and moved my priority to getting Vimalin released for Catalina ASAP.
So have been working frantically to get past the existing hurdles. I have found that the 64 bits constraint isn't really an issue, but the new security protections added to Catalina aren't the best match for backup software.
The main problem is that Vimalin is not allowed to read or write from all locations that a virtual machine might be running. The Vimalin user interface gets the proper security allowance popups, but the worker process does not trigger any of those popups. You can't "whitelist" that either. The worker process takes care of the actual backups and as such backups won't work if the VM isn't in a sanctioned disk location.
Yesterday Trying to figure out the best solution for the worker process lack of entitlements. I ended up moving the process to the App bundle in order to make it share the entitlement of the GUI. That's part one of the solution. Also spent time on improving the build scripts for signing and notarization.
Today Continuing to work on the security entitlement solution.
