Question: With macOS Catalina, PACE requires com.apple.security.cs.allow-unsigned-executable-memory entitlement set, when notarizing app which loads PACE protected plugins. What's the point of Apple new security measures then, if advanced apps (copy protection etc) can't run without backdoor opened?

    We'd need that entitlement enabled for JSFX too. The point is that those applications have to get reviewed by apple in order to get those permissions. I still think it stinks, though (especially since they make you have 10.14+ and Xcode10, which as a side note is useless to me, in order to go through the process).

    Does current version of macOS Reaper already use hardened runtime with these entitlements enabled?

    Not that I know of

    you can use xcode 10.1 on 10.13 to go through the process - it's still a clusterfuckshitfest though, I agree. Thanks for everything you have ever made.
