As the Product Manager for Filr, I wanted to take a quick minute and provide an update on the status of Filr support for macOS High Sierra. Micro Focus Filr 3.2 Desktop Application for Mac currently doesn’t work on macOS High Sierra release. You are probably also aware that there have been quite a few challenges across the industry with the release of macOS High Sierra as well (including reports of alleged zero day Security Vulnerabilities and service providers warning service disruptions on “High Sierra”).
First, let me apologize for the delay in supporting this release. Like for macOS Sierra 10.12 – we began the work to support the Filr client on “High Sierra” with the first beta builds. Unfortunately, we found that the framework code we integrate with was changing drastically between betas. As such we had to wait for the code to stabilize, and unfortunately that didn’t happen until shortly before Apple opted to release the product.
Second, I want to assure all of you that we are heads down working to address this problem as quickly as possible. We are treating this as the highest priority and are doing all we can to get an updated client with support for “High Sierra” as soon as we can.
Finally, in the future we will work hard to ensure that we are testing and addressing issues with the betas of macOS products so that we can support them at or near ship. We at Micro Focus really value your business and assure you that we will do everything we can to reduce the time between new OS releases and Filr support in the future.
