Release 4.9 (Build 200701)

Release 4.8 (Build 191112)

This is a maintenance update which fixes a problem on computers with a specific upgrade history where the privacy settings may not have been shown correctly, because macOS did not grant the application permission to determine the true privacy configuration. Only specific systems running macOS Catalina had been affected.

Release 4.76 (Build 191108)

Release 4.75 (Build 191004)

This version adds support for expected changes in future versions of macOS.

Release 4.74 (Build 190806)

This is a maintenance release which only affects users of macOS Sierra and users testing beta releases of future operating system versions.

Release 4.73 (Build 190626)

Added preliminary support for future versions of macOS.

Release 4.72 (Build 190218)

This is a maintenance update which adds a workaround for a defect in macOS Mojave which can hang the operating system for 7 minutes if an application asks the operating system for the complete list of group accounts in a configuration with a network directory service. All user and group panels show only cached accounts now. The complete list of accounts can be retrieved on demand by clicking an extra button in the panels.

Release 4.71 (Build 190124)

This is a maintenance update which fixes an issue with specific combinations of operating system versions and server configurations where a modification of NFS share settings might not have taken effect until the next restart of the computer.

Release 4.7 (Build 181107)

Release 4.6 (Build 180912)

Release 4.51 (Build 180731)

Added further preliminary support for future versions of macOS. Users of macOS Sierra or macOS High Sierra don’t need this update.

Release 4.5 (Build 180702)

Because Apple does not fix several critical defects and design flaws in the macOS user interface for the authorization of privileged operations, NFS Manager switches to a redesigned security architecture. As in classic versions of Mac OS X, it is now necessary to launch the application in the login session of an administrative user account (which is the default setup for Macs) if privileged operations should be used. Fast User Switching can be used to operate the application while using other user accounts.

Release 4.41 (Build 180412)

Added new user interface to the product activation feature in order to be compliant with the General Data Protection Regulation of the European Union (EU Regulation 2016/679).

Release 4.4 (Build 170918)

Release 4.31 (Build 170609)

NFS Manager has been unlocked to allow beta-testing with pre-release versions of macOS 10.13 High Sierra.

Release 4.3 (Build 170412)

Release 4.21 (Build 160711)

With specific network configurations, one of the environment checks performed by NFS Manager could result in an unusually long delay before opening the first control window of the application. Version 4.21 addresses this issue and is only needed by users who experienced this problem with release 4.2.

Release 4.2 (Build 160706)

Release 4.1 (Build 160524)

Release 4.0 (Build 150928)

Release 3.91 (Build 150720)

Release 3.9 (Build 141218)

Due to changes in European legislation on value added tax, the application had to be re-released with modified pricing information. Support for 32-bit processors was removed. Current customers don’t need to update, customers using the application with Mac OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard on a 32-bit computer must not use this update.

Release 3.9 (Build 131007)

This version adds full support for OS X Mavericks. In particular, the following new mount and automount options can be defined when using OS X 10.9 or later:

Release 3.8 (Build 130726)

Release 3.71 (Build 130211)

Release 3.7 (Build 120711)

IMPORTANT: Due to changes imposed by Apple’s “Gatekeeper” feature, the security component of the application works slightly different. If you are using two or more of our following system utilities, you should update them all in parallel in order to avoid mutual conflicts: NFS Manager, Sync Checker, TinkerTool System Release 2. For detailed information, please see the chapter Release Notes in the reference manual.

Release 3.6 (Build 110709)

Release 3.5 (Build 101109)

Release 3.4 (Build 100730)

Release 3.31 (Build 100316)

This version enhances compatibility with upcoming versions of Mac OS X Snow Leopard.

Release 3.3 (Build 091030)

Release 3.2 (Build 090825)

Release 3.1 (Build 080422)

Release 3.0 (Build 080226)

The application was redeveloped completely for Mac OS X 10.5 because Leopard uses a different NFS implementation. All aspects of the application have changed.

Notes on previous releases of NFS Manager dating back further are no longer part of this documentation. If you need this information, please download NFS Manager 2.94a from the official web site.
