I recently installed 6.3.2 b11 when I purchased the 4M2. It was suggested for people with M1 Mac Studios seeing kernel panics. I just received the alert "SoftRAID Beta Test Version Expired".

What are we expected to do now? I don't see a new version to download.

Are you sure you are running this latest version:

It should have 41 days remaining.

@softraid-support Thanks! Just updated.

Is there a forthcoming stable release I should look out for? It's quite stress-inducing to receive a warning that SoftRAID will expire in the middle of a project.

It's not even that clear to me what actually happens when it expires. After receiving the expiration notification, SoftRAID continued to run normally as far as I could tell.

SoftRAID will NEVER hold data hostage. All that happens is you cannot run the app on an expired beta. the driver will always work normally.

We generally have a newer beta available, pretty much all the time, unless a major release is out, then there is no beta until we find something to fix in the next version.

Running Ventura 13.1 beta 2.  Softraid 7 beta 18 requires reinstallation every time I bring up Softraid to check to see if there is an update.  Normal?  Or buggy?

@mrfearless47
this is a bug in MacOS. My guess is an older version of the driver is installed in the driver cache queue.

Try this:
uninstall SoftRAID all components. restart

reinstall the driver.

Does that fix this?

@softraid-support seems to fix.  The uninstall process got caught in an endless loop trying to restart the machine while claiming Softraid was preventing the machine from restarting.  I killed the task, rebooted and reinstalled Softraid.

We made a change in SoftRAID 7 that stops the restart from being modal, so that part should not happen again.
