InsomniaX 2.1.4 – Yosemite Preview

I know many of you are desperate for a Yosemite fix, so here it is!

Unfortunately I have not had a chance to refine InsomniaX so it has simply been updated to deal with Yosemite and the code signing requirements, during the project update however GC was replaced with ARC and the battery/ac load menus have been removed due to common complaints.

If you have any issues with this release please run through the standard reinstall procedure listed on the InsomniaX page.

Please do NOT publish this release to any sites like MacUpdate as this is only a preview and is not ready for release!

Please also note that InsomniaX 2.1.4 requires a minimum of OSX 10.9

Insomnia: Yosemite Support Update

Good news everyone!… Apple has just approved my request for KEXT development, what this means is I can now happily code sign and deploy KEXTs to Mac OS X 10.10+ systems

I will be aiming to release a new Yosemite update for InsomniaX which will include the new Insomnia KEXT that is code signed for Yosemite.

The new release will drop support for anything below Mac OSX 10.8, and users on these systems will need to download the previous releases of InsomniaX or update to the later Mac OSX releases.

Please also be reminded that developing and maintaining these projects does cost money as I need to purchase an annual developer account from Apple for the code signing as well as pay web hosting, so please consider donating to help keep things moving 🙂

Donations Restored

After a long and tedious process I have finally been able to restore my PayPal account, during the last 9 months I have been unable to receive any donations and hope that any donations people made were rejected by PayPal.

However at this point all previous donation buttons have now expired and will no longer work (including the ones in the applications) as such I have readded the donation button to the website which is now active and working.

Please also be reminded that the work on project such as InsomniaX is purely funded by donations and helps pay for the Mac Developer account along with the website hosting fees, every donation even as small as a $1 can help pay a part of the subscriptions or fees and the more donations the more I can actively develop the projects.

I would also like to apologies again for the confusion for anyone who had tried to make a donation, and I hope you will understand.

If you would like to make a donation please simply click the PayPal donation button on the right hand side of the website 🙂
