FastScripts 2.6.11: Touch Bar Mac Fix

January 6th, 2017

FastScripts 2.6.11 is now available from the FastScripts home page, and is waiting for review by Apple on the Mac App Store.

FastScripts was affected by the same macOS bug that caused MarsEdit to sometimes crash when a Mac with Touch Bar is woken from sleep.

This update works around that crash, and also prevents the possibility that FastScripts (or a script run by it) could put a Mac into high-power GPU mode, affecting battery life.

  • Workaround a bug that could cause FastScripts to crash when waking a Touch Bar Mac from sleep
  • Add NSSupportsAutomaticGraphicsSwitching to Info.plist to avoid depending on high power GPU

Let me know if you run into any problems.

    I think you meant 2.6.11, not 2.7.11, right?

  2. Daniel Jalkut Says:

    @Bill Whoops! Yes, and thanks!

  3. Michel Fortin Says:

    The first sentence is incorrect. FastScript is not available from the MarsEdit homepage. I verified, just to be sure, and it’s not.

    @Michel Jeez, thanks. I guess I have to get some more sleep next time before I release an update :)
