Fetch 5.8 offers compatibility with macOS 10.15 Catalina by Jim Matthews

Fetch 5.8, the 64-bit version of Fetch, is now available for download. The primary feature of this release is compatibility with macOS 10.15 Catalina. Fetch 5.7 users should only upgrade to Fetch 5.8 if they have moved, or will soon move, to Catalina.

A number of features of previous Fetch versions — AppleScript and Automator support, non-English localizations, Kerberos and Bonjour support — are not present in Fetch 5.8. We hope to restore some of these features in future updates.

Fetch 5.8 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 requires macOS 10.15 Catalina, 10.14 Mojave or 10.13 High Sierra.

Please download Fetch 5.8 from the Fetch Download page, or by choosing Check for Update… from the Fetch menu in Fetch 5.7.7. 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, please contact support. And please let us know if you run into any problems with the new release.

A special thanks to the beta testers who helped bring this release into being. It could not have happened without their patience and enthusiastic feedback.

  • I’ve been Fetching since 1995 at least. I don’t recall ever sending you so much as a thin dime in more that two decades. Now I’m about to take the leap to Monterey, and I’ll be proud to send you some money, at long last.
