Cumulus MX and Mac OSX

From build 3044 the development baton passed to Mark Crossley. Mark has been responsible for all the Builds since. He has made the code available on GitHub. It is Mark's hope that others will join in this development, but at the very least he welcomes your ideas for future developments (see Cumulus MX Development suggestions).

Is there anyone out there using MX build 3044 or later on a Mac, and has a Fine Offset (or clone), or a WMR100/200?

I'm using Cumulus MX with a Fine Offset clone (Aercus WS2083), but it doesn't work with builds 3044 or 3046.
I've gone back to 3043 and its working fine again.

Great, thanks that just what we needed to know. Well not so great for you :(

There was a "fix" in b3043 and earlier for a bug in the HID component and we did not know if that bug had been fixed or not in the later version we are now using. So I left the fix in place.

Would you be willing to try a test build for me with that "fix" removed and see if that will run on your Mac? I do not have access to a Mac to test it myself.

Any resolution on the OSX issue? I am still running build 3043 on OSX 10.14.1. I had enough issues with the migration from Win7 to OSX when I changed over a couple of years ago. A little shy of pulling the trigger on something new, being that 3043 is currently working.
