[prMac.com] Hengchun, Taiwan - Ohanaware Co., Ltd. today is proud to announce the immediate availability of App Wrapper version 3.6, an important update to their popular App Store preparation tool. App Wrapper was designed to simplify the process of preparing applications for submission to the Mac App Store and deploying on web sites. Once configured App Wrapper can perform the following actions either at the click of a button or when an application is built within the Xojo development environment.
App Wrapper version 3.6 adds:
* DMG Canvas integration, once configured pressing the "Wrap" button in App Wrapper, will wrap the app & instruct DMG Canvas to create the DMG Image file
* DMG Code signing, either as part of the DMG Canvas integration or via the separate DMG signing window (*4)
* DMG signature verification, on Sierra uses Gate Keeper, on 10.11.5 uses our own code
* Automatically adds the new compatibility plist options
* DMG Signer uses the newer Code signing identity selector
* Updated many of the legacy frameworks within the application
* App Wrapper 3 now ships on a DMG created & signed with the App Wrapper workflow
* Code signs applications and nested code within the application
* Adds entitlements for the App Sandbox
* Clean up permissions of bundled files
* Add App Store required settings and additional property list keys
* Convert HTML files into the Apple Help Book format and inserts into the application
* Performs analysis on the application, to reduce App Store rejection. In same cases App Wrapper can auto fix issues
* Create Zip files, App Store compatible signed installer packages or DMG Image Files via DMG Canvas integration
* Can clean excess files from within the application, such as languages, architectures, specific files, files by extension and even certain file meta data
Additional functionality includes:
* Installer tester, to simplify the process of testing App Store compatible installers
* Xojo compatible script generator, to integrate App Wrapper into Xojo projects
* Application reporting, provides detailed information on an application and nested code
* DMG code signing function for DMG Image files (*4)
