Reports on macOS 10.14 installs from Mac Pro/Radeon RX 580 owners
I've added the first 5 Mojave upgrade reports to the page of Sapphire Radeon RX 580 cards in Mac Pros (2009-2012) page. Jim's report was updated with confirmation (screenshot) of his Mac Pro bootrom version after the update and notes on his 2nd Mac Pro/RX 580 Mojave install - both he said upgraded from 10.13.6 to 10.14 (including firmware update) with only the Radeon Pulse RX 580 card installed. Updated Matt's report to note he was finally able to get the firmware updated/Mojave installed with only a Radeon RX 580 in the Mac Pro.
These specific third-party graphics cards are Metal-capable and compatible with macOS Mojave on Mac Pro (Mid 2010) and Mac Pro (Mid 2012):
MSI Gaming Radeon RX 560 128-bit 4GB GDRR5
SAPPHIRE Radeon PULSE RX 580 8GB GDDR5
SAPPHIRE Radeon HD 7950 Mac Edition
NVIDIA Quadro K5000 for Mac
NVIDIA GeForce GTX 680 Mac Edition
Some other third-party graphics cards* based on the following AMD GPU families might also be compatible with macOS Mojave on Mac Pro (Mid 2010) and Mac Pro (Mid 2012):
AMD Radeon RX 560
AMD Radeon RX 570
AMD Radeon RX 580
AMD Radeon Pro WX 7100
AMD Radeon RX Vega 56
AMD Radeon RX Vega 64
AMD Radeon Pro WX 9100
AMD Radeon Frontier Edition
If the graphics card in your Mac Pro isn't listed above, you need to install one that's compatible with macOS Mojave. If you need additional help, contact Apple Support.
* Third-party graphics cards vary, so you should check with the vendor of your specific graphics card for compatibility details."
If any Radeon RX 580 owners upgrade to Mojave, send a report to firstname.lastname@example.org for adding to our page on Radeon RX 580 in Mac Pros. (Reports on other graphics card models are also welcome of course.) Thanks!
Reminder on OWC Aura SSD Firmware update (not Aura Pro)
I had posted info on this (beta) firmware update last December (page revised in late Feb. 2018) and added on the Storage page, but posting a reminder after I saw a thread in the Mojave forums on problems installing Mojave on a MacBook Pro with Aura SSD. A later post from Alfonso mentioned an Aura SSD firmware update solved the problem. Although the URL is different, the update page has the same info. (Mentions fixes for macOS 10.13 installs, Hibernation and cold booting. Same models listed - OWCSSDAB2MB02, MB05, MB10, MB02K, MB05K, MB10K.) I assume SSDs shipped after the update was posted already have that firmware.
- Improved support for Dark Mode in macOS Mojave.
- Added back the ability to use the dark appearance of Little Snitch Network Monitor on older system versions (macOS High Sierra and earlier).
- Fixed an issue that caused an alert to be shown for an invalid code signature for the App Store on macOS Mojave for some users. There was a bug that prevented Little Snitch from automatically updating the code signature of existing rules when appriopriate. See the Little Snitch help chapter Applications that change their bundle identifier in an update for details about this mechanism.
- Fixed a bug where duplicating a rule in a subscribed rule group would create the duplicate rule in that rule group. The new rule would then be a protected rule that could neither be deleted, nor edited.
- Fixed rule group tags not being shown in "Effective in all profiles".
(Little Snitch 4.2.1 runs on macOS 10.11 to 10.14.)
"Issue with MacBook 2018 models with 10.14 Mojave
MacBook 2018 models (based on the Intel Coffee Lake chipset) running macOS 10.14 can experience black extended display(s) with only mouse cursor. DisplayLink driver v4.3 Beta 6 stays available to force an AirPlay extended display on these machines until a fix is distributed."
(Update: On October 9th/10th they posted new drivers for Mojave (v5.0.1), v4.3.1 for High Sierra/Sierra/El Capitan, and v3.3.1 for OS X 10.10.x Yosemite .)
tvOS 12.0.1 released
Apple has posted tvOS 12.0.1 (build 16J380). Release notes say
"This update includes general performance and stability improvements." (Link in release notes for "Aerial screen savers" is still incorrect as of post time.)

Saw some posts about the Mojave DVD Player missing - replies said it's at System/LibraryCoreServices/Applications in Mojave (and 64-bit now).
