Skitch 2.9 release notes?

Recommended Posts

hi support peeps,

I saw a popup advertising an upgrade to Skitch for Mac v2.9, but in the release notes section the message just says:

Access Denied6D772BB9874728CBn8PzLA+CmB/CitIYplEQztbVTHtb5OcTNgSxamREp2u1JPKbJ4jM9n8ySQ7WmIKbN7ikBorC4mk=

Any idea what's in the Skitch update?

Any info on why this message is displaying? It sounds like other users have installed everything successfully, but this strikes me as incredibly odd.

I'm on Mac OS 10.14.6 on a 2018 MacBook Pro.

just installed Skitch. I downloaded it from the Internet for the first time on this machine, opened the zip file, moved it to Applications, and opened it on my computer by double clicking the file in Applications. Right away I got this message.

Given that in the last few weeks it's come to light that the US Government and companies like Microsoft were the victims of some of the biggest hacks in history, I think this issue warrants an official response beyond just "it's just a normal release," since this is clearly abnormal behavior. Even if it's an innocuous bug it should be acknowledged as affecting so many users (and ideally resolved, but I have less faith in Evernote these days).

In the meantime, I've decided not to install Skitch onto this machine and will be using the native Mac Command-Shift-4 cropped screenshot tool.
