If you’re running Mojave and using a scripting language which can’t itself access Signposts, Blowhole now gives you access to them.
The Mojave public beta is exciting. Here’s some advice on installation, and supporting tools available from here.
Updates mainly to improve their appearance in Dark Mode, although most Consolation users should find worthwhile improvements too.
Important improvements for Sierra and High Sierra, and support for Dark Mode which looks gorgeous in Mojave.
The fields stored in the log have changed across Sierra and High Sierra. Analyse them on the wrong system, and you could lose content without being aware of it.
Support for the unified log’s new features in both High Sierra and Mojave, including Signposts and performance analysis. Now, and free.
Changes include an additional output text format, display log since the last boot, and support for Mojave’s Signposts is already present and being used by Apple.
After 2 years, developers should be able to use the unified log for performance analysis, thanks to extensions and Xcode’s Instruments. Sysadmins and users remain neglected, though.
Improved usability including keystroke shortcuts, and three bugs fixed – one of which disabled use of custom settings files.
My free log browser is progressing towards version 3 release. This beta can save as RTF, runs slow tasks in the background, and has a smaller minimum window size.
