How to get notifications for new macOS builds?

Post by yurikoles » Sun Apr 14, 2019 10:10 am

As I see official macOS devel/staging builds have a lag in a couple of days from corresponding source code drop.
So I'm wondering is there a way to get notified of new macOS binary releases?

I had already tried to subscribe to macOS Download page via RSS reader with no luck.

Winehq doesn’t provide anyway to track releases easily as far as I’m aware.

The macOS releases don’t get built until Wine-Staging patches are ready then usually the same/next day the builds are uploaded.


If you want them faster the only way is to build from source, the advantage of building from source is you can also include features that Winehq releases are missing like Gnutls, MoltenVK can be skipped as at precent it’s honestly not too useful.
The included version of FAudio with Winehq releases was not built with ffmpeg support meaning no wma support where if you build it yourself from source you can have wma support (needed for Skyrim & some other games/applications)


When I’m done updating my own projects I plan to update the macOS build sections even more to facilitate building a good version of wine for macOS.
