Update: Actually, Transmit 4.1.5 is now available-available to all. See bottom.
A quick update-update.
We wrapped up Transmit 4.1.5 on January 6th, fixing some important bugs and addressing two major (and unexpected) Mac App Store issues with Transmit Disk and Amazon S3, part of the pain of the bleeding edge.
Our plan was simple: submit 4.1.5 to the Mac App Store, but don’t post it to our direct customers until it’s approved by Apple, so all customers are treated equally and get the update at the same time.
Unfortunately, as of today, the Mac App Store’s 4.1.5 remains in review. And while it’s a far more critical update for Mac App Store customers than direct customers, we no longer thought it was reasonable to make our direct customers keep waiting due to circumstances beyond their control. (Put another way, our support guys were preparing a full-scale riot.)
So: Transmit 4.1.5 is available today for direct customers! Click here to auto-update.
Mac App Store customers: we deeply, sincerely apologize for your continued wait for this update, and we thank you for your patience and for your purchase. We’re learning a lot from this process, we’ll keep adjusting our approach, and I’m confident things will eventually level out as we get used to the rhythm of this new world.
Update 1/28: Late last night, Transmit 4.1.5 was rejected for (pre-existing) private API use that is easily fixable and we’re happy to do so. Our crack team of engineers were on it like a robot on oil, and we have re-submitted a new build today. Hopefully, we’re almost there.
Update 1/29: Transmit 4.1.5 is now available in the Mac App Store as well. Hopefully, Mac App Store customers can now enjoy the magic of Transmit Disk and more-reliable S3. (We thank all the folks at Apple for their constant hard work — their task, even if self-imposed, is not an easy one. Although outwardly silent, I know Apple isn’t deaf to criticism, and I’m confident that this process will only get better over time.)
