The Service Desk completed testing on the OS X Yosemite upgrade this weekend. After giving it a pretty through shakedown, we found that Yosemite did not have any notable compatibility issues with the mainstream apps used at Mozilla. We tested not only the applications available on Service Now, but we also tested compatibility with our mainstream Web applications and with our recently activated SSO capability. Yosemite came though without a hitch.
To check out the applications we tested, as well as the versions used, click here:
Important things to note before upgrading:
Make a backup of your important user data (if you are current on CrashPlan, this has already been done for you) If it's been awhile between upgrades, you may need to run a Unix permissions repair on your Mac before upgrading - we can help you with this step with a quick call to the Service Desk Be sure to upgrade the following applications BEFORE upgrading to Yosemite:
- VMWare Fusion
- Any third-party application that installs KEXT's (Kernel Extensions)
Any questions? Contact us at the Service Desk.
The limit is 3 minutes per speaker. It's like a lightning talk, but don't feel that you have to have slides in order to make a presentation. If you plan on showing a video, you need to contact the Air Mozilla team before the day of the meeting or you will be deferred to the next week.
