This week I’ve rounded up some bugfixes together with a few minor new features. First off, after a successful build you’ll find a few machine parsable statements in the log, to help people who automate builds. You’ll also see a warning if the build number changes, as it does these days when you install a security update:
15 december 2016 11:35:55 GMT−5 Build success: OUTPUT_PATH='/Users/Shared/osx_updated_161216-10.11.6-15G31.hfs.dmg'
15 december 2016 11:35:55 GMT−5 Build success: OUTPUT_OSNAME='Mac OS X'
15 december 2016 11:35:55 GMT−5 Build success: OUTPUT_OSVERSION='10.11.6'
15 december 2016 11:35:55 GMT−5 Build success: OUTPUT_OSBUILD='15G1212'
15 december 2016 11:35:55 GMT−5 Build success: Notice: OS version changed from Mac OS X 10.11.6 15G31 to Mac OS X 10.11.6 15G1212
Secondly I’ve added a deprecation warning if you’re building an OS that is no longer supported by Apple, as is the case now with 10.9. This also means that I will remove support for it in AutoDMG in the not too distant future, most likely in the next major release.
- Display warning if Apple has stopped updating the target OS.
- Only update the profile if the running OS is supported.
- Handle already mounted
InstallESD.dmgif installer app was moved afterwards.
- Abort the build if disk image creation fails.
- Print warning in log when build number changes during install.
You’ll find the download on the AutoDMG releases page. If you have questions or need help, you can join us in
#autodmg on Slack MacAdmins (but please check the documentation and especially the FAQ first).
