    Indeed. Works pretty good on an ancient, unsupported machine. I’m thinking of salvaging that other notebook and install a small SSD to make it even snappier. It’s just on a 7200 rpm HDD at the mo (I got its SSD and installed it on another MBP).

    Tried installing this now but it stops in the installation process. Nothing happens after I click the "Install' button on the "mac OS Catalina will be installed on the disk "Macintosh HD".
    By the way, I only got the mini-installer 19MB.

    What’s your machine(and current OS)? Have you tried downloading the full installer?

    Installing it on our MBA mid 2012 still running on Mavericks with 80GB of free space. Can’t find the full installer. But I have the High Sierra installer.

    Any developers around using vagrant - any issues so far on Catalina? I'm hesitant about updating as it might affect vagrant setups.

    Legacy Video Card Patch for dosdude1's Catalina Patcher is out! It fixes the long-present grey Menu Bar and Finder Sidebar issues users would experience in Light Mode with non-Metal video cards.

    Do you need to download the full version of the Cata installer? You should find it here:

    Just updated.

    This seems to have fixed the logout issue I've been having on 10.15.
    (e.g. when I do certain things, it just logs me off completely and goes back to the login screen even though I'm actively using the computer)

    That's probably the best "feature" for me so far. Haven't really installed much apps on this notebook, as I intend to just use it when I'm in my study (and leave it on to keep me alive on some websites, if I could find an extension for Safari to automatically refresh tabs)

    Still looking for an extension, or a way to refresh website tabs on Safari Version 13.0.3 (15608.3.10.1.4).

    Thinking Automator at the moment but will have to play around with it.

    Suggestions would be appreciated greatly. :)

    Reload Tab by Denk Alexandru in the MAS used to do exactly what you're looking for, but somehow the extension (along with some others) disappeared from his listing. I'm trying to contact him to find out why and will get back to you if/when he responds. Best case scenario it makes a return, otherwise turning to scripting might be your next best bet.

    Q! For those using bootcamp, i always get stuck during INSTALLING WINDOWS SUPPORT part. I use Windows 10 ISO from their site. Is it really preferable to use a USB installer? What do you usually do for a smooth windows 10 installation?

    We have the same MBA; how is it so far? Holding off the upgrade for now for this machine.

    My 2015 MBP is stable with Catalina so far.

    Sir Ryan, Apple website only shows it is Free but no download or update button. App Store says that I already Installed it so no software update available, just 2 Incompatible Updates (iMovie and iPhoto). About this Mac and Software Update says also that I already Installed.

    Hi sir Dekra, Haven't Installed it yet as the mini-installer that I downloaded won't continue to install after clicking the "Install" button. Also can't find the full installer in the Apple website and App Store.

    @ronjet If I did not misunderstood your concern, you may try using Terminal to download Catalina:

    Code:
    softwareupdate --fetch-full-installer --full-installer-version 10.15.1
