It’s MacBook Pro announcement day, which immediately (for me) became MacBook Pro order day and Monterey/Xcode download day.

On the event itself

It felt tighter, with less filler and fewer overdone transitions, than the iPhone event. But this is a matter of personal taste, of course, and I suppose that I was more interested in this one’s subject matter.

On Monterey and Xcode and TimeStory

We now have a release date for Monterey and release candidates for both it and Xcode. I can finally prepare and submit V2.7 of TimeStory, which has been roughly feature-complete for some time now. This is the first time I’ve ever tried to tie a feature release to Apple’s roadmap (namely, Shortcuts support), and although I mistimed things a bit so that I ended up in a long holding pattern after 2.6 (notice that the last release was “2.6.5”), I’ll be able to hit day one as planned!
