Anyone who made the switch right away to Apple’s newest operating system update, Mountain Lion, likely noticed a new security feature called GateKeeper. This feature is intended to protect you from installing malicious software downloaded from the Internet. In order for Mountain Lion not to think Red Giant’s installers are malicious, we had to go through a process called code signing with Apple in order to bring everything up to date. Even though we’ve been working on this for a while with developer seeds of Mountain Lion, we waited until the update was finally released so we could do our final testing; now that we’re through that process, we’re happy to announce that our installers are now “Mountain Lion Ready”.
So, all you need to do* if you’ve updated to Mountain Lion and want to get started on installing Red Giant products is ensure you download our latest installers and you’re all set!
* There’s always that one caveat to this type of information! We’re specifically talking about Mountain Lion’s GateKeeper feature in it’s default setting. If you’ve changed that security setting to only allow installations through the Apple App Store, you’ll need to change it back – outside of Plastic Bullet for OSX, we do not sell our products through Apple’s OSX App Store.
