Big Sur - are you guys working on it?

Unfortunately I can't connect to any host, the app is crashing all the time I am trying to. I am talking about Big Sur beta. Don't get me wrong, I am not complaining. I love Core Shell and I want to be sure it is ready for the Big Sur release. At the end: do you have any early beta for me? :wink:

Big Sur still far from stable, the development environment keeps crashing so I never got changes to debug it, it's too early to say whose fault that leads Core Shell crashing.

We may not provide early beta, but I will try to release a workable update as soon as Big Sur reaches public beta (developer beta at this moment).

Yang, thank you for the answer. You're right it is too early to make any sudden moves :slight_smile: I just like the app so much that I want to have it on a Big Sur as fast as possible. What I have found is that the app get's killed by the system because of "'/Applications/Core Shell'} attempted to call TCCAccessRequest for kTCCServiceAccessibility without the recommended entitlement" - hmmm... maybe the fix won't be that hard?

Not that easy to fix, the word private implies it might be an entitlement only available for Apple internally. There is very little information about this entitlement on internet, even not exist in Apple's development document.

Core Shell does not do anything special on Accessibility, so I think it is very likely a bug or a change in progress of Transparency Consent and Control (TCC) system.

I understand that you're looking forward to use Core Shell on Big Sur, I'll keep an eye on this issue, and write to Apple dev team if it still happens on public beta of Big Sur.

Please update this thread if you find any other clues.


For when you guys start working on this - not sure if it would help, but I was having the same issue, but what I found is that it works fine if I am just on my laptop with no peripherals. However, when I plug in my keyboard/mouse I can no longer connect to host like OP. I have no idea why that would affect it, but I did pretty extensive plugging/unplugging and narrowed it down to that (all the same software apps were running).
