I’m on 7.0.9, with several of the issues noted above in the fixes, but overall I am very satisfied. I just want to know if you consider the beta version stable enough for production, or do you consider it a test version? Also, I assume the first time I install a beta version, I will need to download the app from the link above and simply install it over my current version? Thanks!
The changes in this beta version or mostly superficial. I’d recommend to go ahead and use it, but only if you have current backups of your GarageSale data.(*)
Yes, but instead of replacing the old version, you can also rename to something like “GarageSale 7.0.9”, and keep it around for easy switching back.
*No matter if beta version or not, you should always have a backup of your GarageSale data. You would be surprised how many people we heard from in support who lost years worth of data because of a faulty hard drive or a corrupt database without having a backup.
GarageSale 7 keeps your database in a folder called com.iwascoding.garagesale7 in your User Library(*) under Macintosh HD/Users/yourUserName/Library/Containers
If you have the folder com.iwascoding.garagesale7 opened in the Finder you can restore
it using Time Machine.
Another way is to transfer that folder to your Mac manually.
(*)Please note: The User Library is hidden by default. To access it click the Finder’s “Go” menu and press the option key to make the User Library show up in the menu. Selecting it will open it in the Finder.
