|Europa 6.2b13 (5821) Companion TLW|
The first release of Helix Utility 6.2 is available. The new version runs only on Intel Macs with macOS 10.5 through 10.14.
Helix Utility is found in “Helix Diagnostics” folder of the Preliminary Release 13 disk image. To install it, simply drag it to your applications folder. (It is also available in the Interim builds folders: look for 5821-utility.zip)
Helix Utility 6.2 is not a simple port of the the old Helix Utility; it is rewritten from the ground up, and features an honest-to-goodness modern user interface. (A screenshot can be seen in the companion TLW article, linked above.) The interface features tabbed panels for each of the main functions, and an Activity Log that provides details that were formerly only available through a hidden diagnostic mode.
The multi-step process of opening, checking, and closing a collection is gone: once a collection has been added to the file list, all it takes is one click to verify the health of a collection.
The first release has just two buttons enabled: Verify and Repair. We tested those thoroughly and are confident they are ready for use. The less-frequently used functions of Helix Utility will be enabled in a future release.
