    Default Mac OS 10.11 El Capitan Compatibility

    Fiery Extended Applications Package Compatibility

    Today Apple released Mac OS 10.11 to the field, available as a free download from apple.com. EFI has been evaluating all the Mac OS 10.11 beta releases and GM seed from Apple. Our testing so far confirms that the current Fiery Extended Applications 4.3 is generally compatible with Mac OS 10.11, however we have found the following issues:
    1. Fiery Remote Scan quits unexpectedly when closing the program (TWAIN plugin not unloading properly).
      This issue is fixed and will be included in an upcoming release to be posted in the download center.
    2. Cosmetic issue with Hot Folder and Fiery Remote Scan icons not changing states for some conditions, such as when in disabled or error states.
      Issue fixed and will be included in an upcoming release to be posted in the download center.
    3. Fiery Remote Scan not launching from Fiery JobMaster or Fiery Impose (works fine launching from Acrobat Pro).
      Actively investigating this issue, with a plan to address in an upcoming release. In the meantime users can work around this issue by scanning to PDF, then inserting the pages using Job Master.

    We’ll update this post in a few weeks, when we have the new release available for download, or any further updates.

    Fiery Print Driver Compatibility
    EFI will begin posting updated drivers in the Download Center for over 100 currently supported products, starting from October 1.
    Please use these updated printer drivers with Mac OS 10.11; existing Fiery printer drivers are not supported with Mac OS 10.11.

    Any word on Fiery XF 6.1 and El Capitan? Hoping with "Metal" that it might improve some performance. Safe to update?

    EFI Fiery XF 6.2 and eXpress 4.5.6 not supported on OS 10.11 El Capitan operating system

    Apple released Mac OS 10.11 to the public September 30, 2015.

    Therefore EFI has been evaluating all the Mac OS 10.11 beta releases and has also evaluated the Mac OS 10.11 GM and final release from Apple.
    Our testing to-date confirms that the current EFI Fiery XF 6.2 is not compatible with Mac OS 10.11, because of the following issues:

    · EFI Fiery XF Client crashing upon startup if a workflow contains an active “Job Ticket”.

    A working solution and complete El Capitan support for Fiery XF will be delivered with the upcoming 6.2.2 release. Support will have a hotfix available soon.

    · UniDriver not working if the system was updated. Jobs can disappear.

    Permissions require a repair and a working solution will be delivered with the release of Fiery XF 6.2.2. Support will receive a hotfix when finished.

    We will not support an installation of EFI Fiery XF 6.2 or Fiery eXpress 4.5.6 on OS 10.11 El Capitan.

    Are you saying there will never be support to have the server or client running on El Capitan??

    **edit** seems I missed the part about the 6.2.2 release. So when that update comes, it will work with El Capitan.

    I have 2 questions:
    1. The release notes for these drivers say that the old drivers need to be removed. Is there a way to do this through the command line silently? It is not feasible to uninstall old drivers on 400+ computers.

    2. Is the 10.10 Fiery Driver patch still needed?

    Any updates? Will I be able to use Fiery XF 6.1 or is there an update for this to make it work? New to using Fiery XF, only had it for about 5 months or so and never done any updates.

    1. Yes - here's a technote explaining how. FSU (Silent) CommandLine.pdf

    2. Nope, the new Fiery Drivers listed as compatible with 10.11 require no patches.

    This is not the place for Fiery XF discussions, please visit proofingforums.efi.com for more updated information. You'll need to create a new login for that forum.

    Thanks!

    Default Has this been resolved? YES or NO support for El Capitan?

    I'm reading conflicting reports that Fiery Software will and will not be supporting Mac OS 10.11 El Capitan. I can't believe that it would not. I use Command WorkStation every day, all day. It would be a tragedy if it was not supported. All my software has been updated using the Fiery Software Manager but I can't launch Command WorkStation.

    iMac 5K, 16 GB RAM to a Ricoh Aficio MP C4501 printer

    Please advise.
