    Just an FYI for the forums. I looked for it on Friday, but it wasn't available then. I never checked over the weekend.

    It says it's an 8.09 GB file download.

    Catalina was released today (Oct 7, 2019) as Bob pointed out above.

    Please make sure you have a good backup strategy in place that you can recover to if Catalina is not to your liking.

    Also be aware of the 32 bit application restriction that Catalina implements. 32 bit applications and even some 64 bit applications with 32 bit dependencies will not work. Also be sure to check with the RoaringApps site to see if your apps are compatible.

    Have fun.

    Strange that it isn't a top banner on the App Store, I had to search for it. The entry says it's 4.9GB in size.

    I also found out I needed an update to Safari (ver 13.0.2), before I could install Catalina.

    I always run TM after I get the upgrade/update file downloaded.

    If you go through System Preferences, it says the file is 8.09 GB

    I've got the supplemental update and Safari updates only. I guess the supplemental update is a pre-req to Catalina.

    It’s weird, I started the download when I started this thread. I got an error, so I restarted my Mini and began the download again, that was when I found the Safari update was needed. So I installed that, and began the Catalina upgrade download again and got another error. The first two times the downloads took about 8-10 minutes. This time it’s telling me 3 more hours, and it’s been downloading for 20-30 minutes. Now, just got the error again.

    Restarting download.

    Wise comments from so many of our learned members - 32 bit apps and, as our Admin chscag reminded us, 64bit apps with 32 bit dependencies. And many have commented on peripherals.

    Of all these peripherals, I have a suspicion that Printers may be the major stumbling block.

    I was rather surprised to see it there, tucked into its own little spot, and in it's annoying very light grey colour font that Apple seems to love using, and this one is almost to the point of being unreadable, and interestingly, released under the utilities banner.

    I hope it's not because they were embarrassed to release it and just stuck it there without much fanfare.

    Anyway, there it will sit and stay as my 2011 iMac cannot use it.

    I've been running various incarnations of the Catalina Public Beta since it was released. With one exception (Beta 2) I haven't had issues with my Brother all-in-one. It worked under Mojave and has worked under Catalina. I'm not really using their extra software. I tend to rely on the equivalent macOS app.

    Yeah, Patrick, not sure why Apple is kind of hiding it.
    Actually, the primary way to obtain macOS updates and security updates is through System Preferences, Updates and not the Mac App Store.

    Well I bit the bullet and pressed GO!

    Probably the smoothest/fastest update I've ever had and everything seems to work ok including my Canon Printer, Microsoft apps and Adobe Photoshop!

    The only thing I'm not 100% sure of is how CCC is going to deal with my daily back up now that there are two Macintosh HDs - HD & HD Data.

    I have put the Relocated Items folder to one side and I'll worry about it for a few days!!

    Did the upgrade last night and everything is fine so far. At work I have a WavLink USB dock to power my external monitors that needed a bit of restart to work, but that seems to be working again.

    Thanks for those links I'm now 100% sure how CCC will/should deal with my Daily Backups! They certainly seem to have been well ahead of the game.

    It's good to see Apple becoming anglicised and renaming the TRASH as BIN
