Until these bugs are fixed, versions in iCloud simply can’t be trusted. And mixing them with Handoff becomes even more confusing.
Both apps have been notarized now, for added security protection, particularly when used in Mojave.
A new version of Mojave brings some fixes, and introduces some new bugs. Here a few for starters. I’ll add more as we discover them.
Shared documents in iCloud have patchy version histories with duplication. They are also inefficient, leading to download of many identical files. And they can take forever to sync.
Working on shared documents in iCloud Drive is attractive, and support by Pages, Number, and Keynote. But there is flaw with versions. Can it be worked around?
Document versions can be a lifesaver when you need to reverse some changes or recover missing text. So why don’t they work on documents shared in iCloud?
You can now share old versions of documents in iCloud Drive. But don’t expect it to work properly, and stand by for profound confusion.
Mojave’s first full release is looking relatively free of bugs so far. This list is updated as and when new information arrives.
Natural language parsing, privacy exploring, update investigating, xattr-tweaking, iCloud poking, log browsing: they’re all here for Mojave.
Hopefully fixes a bug, and across-the-board minor improvements. Most important for those upgrading to Mojave, but useful for all users.
