Big Sur and Astounding Scripts

Big Sur does not appear to need any changes to any of the scripts in the book.

Big Sur coastline

Just a quick note: I upgraded to Big Sur a few months ago. The scripts appear to need no changes from the current edition of the book.

I may still publish a new edition of the book, but the only change would be the boilerplate that mentions what operating system the book is for. Instead of referencing “macOS Catalina” on the indicia page, it would reference “macOS Big Sur”. Everything else would remain the same.

And I may not do this, because of the ever-present potential of meeting new bugs in either the Smashwords or Amazon review process when uploading a new file. In programming, “if it works, don’t fix it” is often very good advice, especially when dealing with what are essentially black boxes where it is difficult to know how the input affect the output.

In fact, having written that, I have convinced myself to not upload a new version with just the boilerplate changed. I’ll save that effort for when Monterey comes out.
