PopChar X 8.8 and KeyCue 9.6 improve Catalina compatibility and support Emoji 12


Perg, Austria - December 11, 2019: Ergonis Software today released PopChar X 8.8 and KeyCue 9.6, both of which improve compatibility with macOS Catalina.

The new versions work around a problem with Catalina's automatic dark mode, where the menu icons were not correctly updated after an automatic light/dark change. The applications are now also signed and notarized with a secure timestamp and fully comply with Apple's increased security requirements. Both new versions also add support for Emoji 12 on macOS Catalina 10.15.1 and newer.

Besides that, the new versions also bring new product-specific improvements. PopChar X 8.8 adds a new built-in layout for Emoji 12.0 and correctly suppresses recently introduced Emoji characters on older macOS versions that do not yet support these characters. KeyCue 9.6 offers improved handling of applications with invalid menu shortcut specifications and works around a menu scanning incompatibility in RagTime.

Furthermore, both new versions contain fixes and enhancements to improve compatibility and stability on all supported macOS versions and are therefore recommended upgrades for all users, whether or not they are running Catalina. Visit Ergonis Software's website to learn more about the changes in this release and to download the new version.
