The Archive: Catalina Crash Testing - v1.4.3

edited November 2019 in The Archive

Hey folks,

A very helpful user reported that macOS Catalina would regularly crash The Archive when closing the window.

I caught and fixed one of the bugs that produced this crash and released v1.4.3 on the Cutting Edge channel today. Could y'all please have a look if you can (a) make The Archive crash on Catalina now, and (b) see if the new version fixes the problem?

Since I also changed the Omnibar a bit, v1.4.2 remains the stable version for download on the website for now.

Thanks for the help!

And if you run into any Omnibar-related issues, please post here, too, so I can fix this up for the public release.

  • Thank you! I have crashed it a few times on Catalina as well, mostly when closing windows (and occasionally tabs as well, I think). I don't have the "cutting edge" version, but look forward to the fix. (It didn't crash as often as to be annoying.) I have had the crash reports sent to apple and not sure how to retrieve them.

  • @zvt This time, the crash logs are not particularly useful, so don't worry :) I attached a link to the first post here in case you want to test out the new version next to the current one to see if it crashes. Would be much appreciated!

  • Thanks for the emails, y'all! The crash reports virtually went away overnight with v1.4.5, so that's good :)

  • I've tried to crash 1.4.5, but no success :) Thanks for the fix!

  • This is not omnibar-related, but I've managed to produce an error very reliably on 1.4.5 (edge channel).

    Steps to reproduce:

    1. Open a note.
    2. Open a wikilink in the opened note.
    3. While the new note is open, rename the old note through the results list.
    4. Now, click the back button.
    5. Error! Cannot go back to note that has been renamed.

    I have a similar issue as described by "orderinthecourts" Just using the back button causes the error after clicking on several notes. I am forced to reboot The Archive to eliminate the problem. I sent the error report to support. I am running 1.4.5 under the latest release of Catalina 10.15.1.

  • Yeah, working on this one :) Thanks!
