    Fetch 5.8.1, a minor update, is now available for download. This release restores two features, the Find command and the ability to change font sizes, that were present in Fetch 5.7.7 but were missing from Fetch 5.8.

    In addition, Fetch 5.8.1 fixes a number of crashes and other bugs. See the release notes for details.

    Fetch 5.8.1 is a free update if you purchased your Fetch license after January 28, 2009; otherwise an upgrade is $10, and a new license is $29. Fetch 5.8.1 requires macOS 10.15 Catalina, 10.14 Mojave or 10.13 High Sierra.

    Please download Fetch 5.8.1 from the Fetch Download page, or by choosing Check for Update… from the Fetch menu. Fetch is no longer available in the Mac App Store; if you purchased a previous version of Fetch from the App Store and wish to upgrade to Fetch 5.8.1, please contact support.
