[Sticky] Current SoftRAID beta version
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.
@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?
this is a bug in MacOS. My guess is an older version of the driver is installed in the driver cache queue.
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.
