macOS 10.14 Mojave Release Notes
After weeks of testing, Information Systems & Computing (ISC) believes macOS 10.14 Mojave is safe for general use.
Last month, Apple released its newest version of the Macintosh operating system, macOS 10.14 Mojave. After weeks of testing, Information Systems & Computing (ISC) believes that macOS 10.14 Mojave is safe for general use with the following caveats:
- FileMaker Pro does not yet have a Mojave-friendly update, and one is not expected until November at the earliest. Users that work heavily with FileMaker should refrain from updating until a patch is available.
- Safari 12, which comes preinstalled with Mojave, does not support NPAPI-based web browser plugins, including Java. Users that upgrade to Mojave and require NPAPI functionality should install and use Firefox 52 ESR instead.
As with any operating system change, we strongly recommend backing up all important data on the computer before upgrading.
Security Improvements to Safari 12
When Password Auto-fill is turned on, Safari 12 can automatically generate a strong password within any password field on a website. Safari 12 includes the ability to audit passwords, checking saved passwords for strength or repeat use. Should a password be flagged, Safari then provides a link to the corresponding site for the user to change their password.
