"Single PKG installer now auto-detects OS and quietly adjusts installation for older OSes" 

 

This is a welcome sight! Pain in rear before having to get the right installer (I'm not a Mac person, can you tell?)

Very pleased to hear about the new Single PKG installer that auto-detects OS and quietly adjusts installation for older OSes! Brilliant!

Good to see so many updates!

I volunteered to beta test version 4.0 of the Automate plugin about 6 months ago (I think. It’s been a while). Seems to be going fine for the most part, but is that version going to be released any time soon?

Should I uninstall and re-install version 3.x?

So great to see some fixes for the Mac agent!

We’ve had a lot of trouble with installing and troubleshooting agents. Even uninstalling has been a pain, and looks like this finally fixes that.

Appreciate all your work to keep improving your products!

Anything to help silently install on a Mac is a win. 

Thats been the biggest frustration for me. The bulk of our clients have mainly Windows based environments, I havent yet found an easy way to roll out to Mac's without doing it manually (a number of our clients have a few Mac's sprinkled here and there). I'm glad to hear that this update removes the need to get the correct version installer, but could do with an automated way to push it out, any suggestions?
