Version 1.9

21 June 2021 — Build 426

Resolves an issue where the Preferences window no longer opened and the Notifications drawer might STILL open on older Macs.

Lessons Learned for the 6th Time:
  • Don't ship apps built with beta versions of Xcode.
  • We really suck at learning things the first five times.

Version 1.7

2 December 2020 — Build 405

  • Fixes an issue where everyone's entire family tree emailed me about an issue on Big Sur 11.0.1 that stopped Muzzle from turning DND off correctly.

Unbelievably, we're still doing this: The Unmuzzled Podcast.

Version 1.2

7 July 2017 — Build 121

  • An issue where Muzzle crashed on macOS 10.11

Version 1.1

5 July 2017 — Build 117

This is the initial public release of Muzzle!

The Origin Story:

Muzzle was born in a group iMessage thread. See, Brian was screensharing with a client when Josh sent him a message about that client, which macOS delightfully the client. Bad times were had by all. But Brian and Josh knew a Mac developer. And that Mac developer had a working build of Muzzle in their hands five hours later.

  • An issue where the app always thought there was an update available.
  • An issue where the "start at login" option did not work.
  • The app now remembers what state Do Not Disturb was in before screensharing started and restores that state when it ends.
  • This means that if DND is ON when you start screensharing, Muzzle won't turn it off when sharing ends.

Version 1.0

20 June 2017 — Build 57

This was the initial beta release of Muzzle. It went out to a few good friends who were willing to risk their Macs with a new, untested app.
