Pear Note 3.2.1 for Mac

Thursday, January 28th, 2016

Hot on the heels of Pear Note 3.2 is Pear Note 3.2.1. Pear Note 3.2 had a bug in it that would prevent it from updating to new versions when running on OS X El Capitan 10.11. If you try to check for updates, you’ll see an error. Sadly, I did’t catch this until after it was released. So, I pulled the 3.2 download to fix the bug. 3.2.1 does not have this bug, and should be able to update itself just fine.

What if I installed 3.2?

If you were one of the few people who managed to download 3.2 before I pulled it, and you are running on 10.11, then you will have to manually update to 3.2.1. To do so, just download the trial in your browser, and replace the broken 3.2 with the 3.2.1 you download (if you just run the download, it will offer to put itself in Applications for you). It will see your installed license, so no worries about being in trial mode again.

Hopefully there is no 3.2.2 coming immediately, but please let me know if you run into any problems.

Pear Note 3.2 for Mac

Thursday, January 28th, 2016

After way too long, Pear Note 3.2 for Mac is available for direct customers (App Store customers can get the update as soon as Apple approves it). This should get Pear Note working properly on OS X El Capitan (10.11). Please let me know of any remaining issues you run into.

Note – requires at least OS X Mountain Lion 10.8

Pear Note 3.2 drops support for 10.6 and 10.7. If you’re still running one of those old OS versions, you can continue running Pear Note 3.1.4 and it will continue to work fine. If you’re using 10.8, 10.9, 10.10, or 10.11, then Pear Note 3.2 is for you.
