    Minor correction: Beyond Compare installs symbolic links to its command line tool links in /usr/local/bin, as it should.

    Default Outdated code signing?

    Related to this discussion, I've noticed that Beyond Compare 4.0.1 and 4.0.2 were being rejected by GateKeeper as being from an unknown developer when I launched them on OS X 10.10 (I was able to get them running via the contextual menu Open, as usual for GateKeeper).

    Looking at those two versions with "spctl -a -t exec -vv /Applications/Beyond\" produces this output on OS X 10.10:
    /Applications/Beyond rejected
    source=obsolete resource envelope
    origin=Developer ID Application: Scooter Software Inc.
    (For some reason I'm not getting the same behaviour with a re-extracted copy of 4.0.0: GateKeeper will let me launch it, but the same spctl command says rejected with "source=matched cdhash".)

    A further check with "codesign -dvvv /Applications/Beyond\" shows that Beyond Compare 4.0.0, 4.0.1 and 4.0.2 have a version 1 signature, which is not accepted by GateKeeper on OS X 10.9.5 and later. To fix, this, Beyond Compare needs to be signed on a Mac running OS X 10.9 or later, which will give it a version 2 signature.

    Thanks for the report. We just missed the window with an expired code signing, and are working on updating that.
