MarsEdit 3.2.2, an extremely minimal update to 3.2.1, which nonetheless fixes some importantly frustrating bugs, has been rejected by Apple for alleged violations of their policies that I can’t yet make sense of. Rather than postpone indefinitely the availability of this release while I work out the issues with Apple, I’m making it available immediately to all customers.
- Fix an issue where the posts list is sorted in wrong order on launch
- Fix Tumblr support to allow downloading more than 50 recent posts
- Fix an issue where passwords were sometimes not accepted correctly with Blogger & Tumblr
I recommend that all direct-purchase customers update at your earliest convenience.
For Mac App Store customers, I recommend that you upgrade to the direct-download version only if you are eager to see fixes for any of the issues listed above. If you have run a Mac App Store release at least once on your Mac, the downloadable version of MarsEdit will run as a fully-unlocked version for you, but will not continue to be updated automatically by the Mac App Store.
I’m sorry for the confusion. I prefer to release updates of MarsEdit simultaneously to both App Store and direct-download customers, but in situations like this I feel it’s important to move on with life while continuing to work with Apple on the issues that are preventing approval.
