    Idea [I] Reminder: Download Mojave NOW, but DON'T INSTALL

    Just a brief reminder as with all new macOS releases:

    Be sure to download the new Mojave (macOS 10.14) base installer through the Mac App Store. However, force quit the installation before it begins. You'll now have an application called Install macOS Mojave in your Applications folder.

    This file is required if you ever need 10.14.0. Once Apple releases 10.14.1, that will be the only version available from the App Store, and Avid may or may not support it.

    Apple will continue to release downloadable "Combo" updaters so that you can get all of the updates up to a specific point release you want. Those will always be avaiable, but this short window (before 10.14.1) is the only time you can get the base version.

    So even if you don't anticipate upgrading to Mojave for a while, download it now.

    Re: Reminder: Download Mojave NOW, but DON'T INSTALL

    Good reminder Kevin!

    Has anyone actually tried? 

    I'm always holding off new OSes until at least the x.x.2 or x.x.3 version, but this one has a very low bug count so far.

    I would NOT recommend upgrading at this point. Hold out until Avid has a tested/approved version.

    Remember that what you download in the App Store is only a downloader that always automatically pulls the latest version. To get the full standalone version you will need a different method. DosDude1 app can help.

    That's not true. The Install macOS Mojave App is a full installer of the base (10.14.0) version. It's 6 GB in size.

    I should correct that. For some, App Store will only download the downloader.
