We’ve been busy preparing Empire Express for Apple’s App Store and are pleased to announce that a free, public beta of Empire Express 2.2 is now available for download. This is a pre-release of the version which will be available from the App Store. Being beta software it may have issues and may not function as well as the final version.
Changes to version 2.2 include:
- In previous versions the Empire Express application was in an Empire Express folder along with supporting files such as the Catalog. Now the Empire Express application is installed directly in the Applications folder.
- Fixed a crashing bug that sometimes occured when an Empire Express document was opened using the Finder and then later closed.
- Fixed a crash that occurred while editing text with macOS 10.12 Sierra.
- Requires Mac OS 10.9 or later.
This is a free beta — no purchase is required for a fully-functioning application; however it expires on Feb. 28, 2017 and will no longer work after that date. By that time, Empire Express will be available for purchase or a new beta will be available for download.
