Heartened about High Sierra, but are you all actually serious?

macOS & Mac Apps


I just looked under the tab on this site for active bugs within OSX.

I filtered things down by active any severity any starting in 10.13 High Sierra. It says no active bugs. Is this because the editorial team hasn't yet had the chance to document them, or are you all actually serious that what I am seeing is the honest to God truth! There really are! no bugs? If so, then I'm heartened beyond comprhensible belief! It's not anyone up here's fault, admins, mods, editers, etc, but I just find it very hard to believe that there is literally nothing! Nada! Zilch! If you really mean to tell me, there is nothing, then I'll absolutely update, but I just wanna be totally totally sure that I'm not missing something. Granted, I could always reformat and go back, don't get me wrong, and yes, I definitely do have a Super Duper backup, and yes, it is current. I just ran it last night, but still, the principle remains for me: Don't update until I'm totally sure I know what I'm getting myself into. I didn't use to do that. I'd just do it, then later would be like, awe! Crap! People would then tell me, "Well Chris? Did you not read the bug list on Applevis?" "Uh, no?" So, yeah. This time around, I'm gonna play it smart. I wanna know first before I do anything I'll later partially regret. Anyway, thanks much. I really appreciate the responses in advance.

Have a fantastic day, and God bless!

In His service,

Chris Gilland.

As much as I wish I could say there are no bugs, that's not the case. We recently put up a blog post covering the new features, changes, fixed bugs, and new bugs in 10.13. As you guessed, we just haven't yet had time to update our tracker to reflect these changes. We hope to have this done soon.

Thank you for the link, it's very appreciated. Meh, to me, at least, these bugs definitely by no means are show stoppers. Do you know by chance if they have given us access to the new Siri female US English voice, where we can use it with Voiceover? Either that or the new male voice? Even the older Siri voices would be excellent. I mean, they did it with iOS, and now that Siri's included in OSX, I guess I'm just a little bit baffled that they haven't most likely done this despite a lot of our user feedback. The other thing, what about smart color inversion? Is it like before, or is it now something where we can do the same as in iOS 11, and use smart invert? With my low vision, I absolutely swear by invert colors, but if it's gonna make my little niece's leetle face look like a smirf, then... LOL! She's already a cuty pie enough as is, we don't needer winning the cuteness darlin... ahim, uh, whoops? I mean, Darwin, LOL! award. Heheheheh. Just kidding, but in all seriousness...

I just saw your blog post about High Sierra. My automatic updates issue seems to have resolved itself. I went into System Preferences earlier today under App store, and was able to check the box for OS updates once I clicked the lock icon or whatever it is. So I'll probably update to High Sierra tonight or within the next couple of days. It doesn't look bad at all. But then again, I personally am not surprised by this since things have been working great on my end anyway. I'm so looking forward to the improvements in image recognition. The other new features sound cool too. Lol I guess I'm just a geek. Or perhaps this is only the tip of the iceberg for me in terms of geekiness, ROFL!

What I had to do was type in MacOS in the app store, then it came up with high sierra. If you do the normal update thing, this won't work.
