Winter is coming…and so is macOS 13 Ventura

Updated 11/5/2022: macOS 13 Ventura is out in the wild and so are all of our compatibility updates. Update now and keep in touch if you need a hand with anything!

We mark the time by Apple’s yearly routine, kicking around new hardware and software releases like notches on a door frame. What’s that? The M2’s got 4 billion more transistors than the M1? You don’t say! No, don’t think Numbers got ODBC support this year. There’s always 2030! The months pass and, quite suddenly, the Earth’s made another lap completely around the sun. Poof! Here we are again, another Apple OS upgrade season older. Where has 2022 gone? Did we put it out back with the dog or kick it under the sofa again? Oh, that’s right – you’re not here to celebrate our absent mindedness, are you? You’re wondering where we are with compatibility updates for macOS 13 Ventura.

The bottom line: The latest versions of all of our applications appear to be completely functional on macOS 13 Ventura. No showstoppers, though there was a major kerfuffle with CheckBook’s Accounts drawer that had us clearing our calendar and bulk ordering Twinkies, chocolate-covered espresso beans, and Jolt. Luckily, the kerfuffle blew over in later betas and we’ve got a toe in the Jolt black market. What’s more, we didn’t hear a peep out of any of our…peeps?…during the Ventura public beta cycle, either. That’s what we call progress around here! Anyway, here’s a little more detail on how each application’s doing, otherwise:

Audiobook Builder 2.2.4 has a few graphical glitches to clean up, but no major issues. 2.2.5 will be out in the next two weeks.

CheckBook and CheckBook Pro 2.7.12 also have a couple of items to work around, but no major issues. 2.7.13 will be out in the next two weeks.

PixelGriddle 1.1.1’s sidebar may not be the warm, waffle-y, orange-ish, brown-ish that makes you wonder where the maple syrup jug got off to. 1.1.2 will have that fixed soon.

Return Labels 1.1 won’t render the contents of the font size box just so, so we’ll take care of that in 1.1.1, due in the next two weeks.

And that’s a wrap for the 2022 Apple OS Upgrade Season, folks. Please get in touch at if you need any additional details or have tips on where we can find our lost 2022. Thanks!
