Please stay on topic Urs, let the other independent developers to share their experience, you might have help programming and coding and you have a bigger user base probably, but this is a real problem for many others developers coding and programming almost alone if not all by themselves.
Some apple users were trying to derail other threads were all of these facts are being exposed in order to deviate the attention of what's happening, We don't want that here.
With all respect.
In my experience as a sole programmer/coder, this wasn't a problem at all.
I'll repost this here as well as it might get lost in the several threads regarding this topic.
Adding notarization and stapling to my build system took just a couple of hours
of research/work. If anyone needs help with it, check this thread
and read this document
I can understand that if you have dozens of installers, notarizing/uploading all of them might take a while (but with a build script shouldn't really be an issue, this shouldn't even be a manual task, to be honest).
32bit plugins, in 2019 shouldn't be discussed IMHO.
Regarding the other 2 "issues" with Catalina, again, you can check my other post here
No doubt it is simple for several ones (monolithic copy protection, simple installer based on package maker). Maybe it is a lot of work if your install manager is patching executables (and I'm not alone, avast has a similar issue)
The same for opengl, there is nothing to do if you don't use it, maybe it is a lot of work if you use opengl and you have to rewrite and test the code again
The same for Intel deprecation, maybe it is a lot of work if you rely on Intel libraries, , otherwise it is a single line of work, and so on
This is what makes me nuts in these topics, the "it was 3 lines of code for me, I don't understand your issues".
I agree, this is our homework, this is the price for supporting the platform, but it doesn't mean it is universally easy or simple to do.
It is a wheel, I'll remind people next time they'll try to debug a user machine and they'll raise a topic.
