    I get this popup it seems like twice a day on FETCH:

    "For security reasons, you need to code sign your application or sign your updates with a EdDSA key. See https://sparkle-project.org/documentation/ for more information."

    What does it mean??

    Thanks

    Hi,

    Fetch uses the Sparkle update framework, but I haven't had reports of other Fetch users getting that alert, and I haven't seen it in my testing. Are you sure the pop-up is coming from Fetch?

    Thanks,

    I did look it up and found out about the Sparkle thing.

    I'm almost positive it came from FETCH but I will let you and everyone know when it pops up again, ok.

    Many thanks

    One more thing.

    I just restarted my IMAC and I didn't see the FETCH icon at all so I went to FINDER/APPLICATIONS and FETCH is in there but when I click on it I get:

    FETCH
    The developer of this app needs to update it to work with this version of macOS. Contact the developer for more information.

    So I downloaded 5.8.1 again and it's working fine but not showing in APPLICATIONS. Any idea how I can get FETCH back in there?

    Thanks

    It just did it again!! ON FETCH!!

    "For security reasons, you need to code sign your application or sign your updates with a EdDSA key. See https://sparkle-project.org/documentation/ for more information."

    I did a screen shot but don't think there's a way to add it here!

    Hi Paul,

    To get Fetch 5.8.1 into the Applications folder, drag the copy of Fetch that is currently in the Applications folder to the Trash. Then drag Fetch 5.8.1 into the Applications folder.

    Thanks,
