macOS build for darktable 2.4.4?

I was happy to see a new darktable version come out this week. But there doesn’t seem to be a download for macOS. Anyone know when it will be available? Thanks.

There isn’t currently a date set for the release.

The MacOS DMG is community built and we are always looking for people to contribute.

That’s the first time I remember that there wasn’t a .dmg the day the release was announced.

I have the resources to do a build. I’ll look into what’s required to do a release build.

Thank you. I do S/W for a living and work on Mac all the time. I had managed to build from GitHub master for my own configuration already, so building for release shouldn’t be too big a leap. I have a soon-to-be-obsolete 2011 MacBook Pro that I can dedicate to the cause.


Maybe I could give you some help to integrate the .DMG creation into Travis CI? I think safety-wise this is a better solution than using a private PC…

I have this working already since a while for my personal project, and I am working on a similar mechanism for GIMP.

Once you have the build scripts ready we could try to set this up. I would in such case have a preference for dependencies provided via homebrew, as that’s what I am successfully using at the moment.

Open-source in action. Good to see :+1:


The angels are blowing their horns and singing. The .dmg for 2.4.4. is now available!

Be careful where you obtain your copy. As of now, the link at Release release-2.4.4 · darktable-org/darktable · GitHub has not yet been updated. It’s still providing 2.4.3

I downloaded the updated .dmg from Release release-2.4.4 · darktable-org/darktable · GitHub .
