There is one known issue: Gatekeeper will issue a warning because the application has not been "Notarized".

That said, we do not recommend that you upgrade to Catalina until it has had two or three updates.

I’m assuming that you’re going to fix that gatekeeper issue??

Not immediately, no.  In order to fix it, I would have to move to Catalina for development, and then because we would be building on Catalina, Apple can drastically change the behavior of their frameworks and this would require a lot of testing/validation.

I just want to followup to say that Kirk has already found a way to fix this. You shouldn't see any Gatekeeper messages when you install Photo Mechanic 6.

I think the message only appears when you install PhotoMechanic over Catalina. If you already have PM installed in Mojave and upgrade to Catalina, no message appears and everything seems to work fine.
