Auto Display Brightness always keeps turning itself on after restarting.
Safari consumes a lot of CPU and temperature of the mac is high.
Choppy animations on rMBP 2015 13 inch
Safari still presents the same bug when randomly you cannot quit.
Very high battery consumption - lost 15% in 35 minutes while reading news on websites.
Youtube High Res video have flickering and artefacts while playing in some cases.
iTunes - nightmare - same as iTunes on Sierra latest update. extremely slow and freezing.

Looking forward to DP2 :)

Can't find the EDIT button...

Doesn't work:
Sophos Antivirus

In fact remove it before trying to install the beta as it has troubles with the apfs and you run into eternal reboots.
There seem to be more Antivirus apps out there with problems, like Avast, but haven't tested myself.

Parallels 12 is (seems to be) working fine for me, runs my Win10 and CentoOS VM's correctly as far as I can tell.
For me, the resolution was off, and set REALLY high, so everything was really small. I just right clicked (two finger press) on windows desktop and changed the resolution. I assume this will be fixed in the next parallels update, with a parallels tools update.

Any reports on Office 2008 or Office 2011? Curious because of Microsoft's stance on it.
Thanks for posting that link. I just updated to Office 2016 because of it. I got the Home & Business Edition for $56.99. Think it's a GREAT deal. Seems to work OK, though some of the templates I previously made need to edited.

Am sure he means version 2.0 for Windows ;) unless they are going to change to number parity.

I'd like to see Touch Bar support just so I can have even quicker shortcuts and also the screenwriting format options could interest me to write in that format.

Keith had to teach himself how to code so I'm happy to be patient. He even had to teach himself how to code the iOS version because people he hired couldn't get it done. I'm sure he will pull through. The man is a blessing.
Indeed, they are skipping Windows 2.0 and going to 3.0 for number (and feature) parity.

Oh, I agree. Clever guy and a top-notch product. Just hope that he and Ioa stay forever safe and well and fixed on Scrivener...so many people have vested interests and reliance in the work that they do.

Skype, Steam and office all work. With the exception of Outlook.

I'm loving the battery life and the stability. I just purchased a 2016 macbook pro and it was crashing significantly on Sierra. I did a clean install with the beta and it's been like butter.

Mail plugins
Mail Buttler now working and also spam sieve
I have Spamsieve working but I still get the "mailbutler disable" window when I open Mail. It is showing in the activity monitor but nothing shows it is working (Mail Pref, etc).

High Sierra seems to have a severe battery consumption bug.

I left my MBP (on battery) closed next to me while I slept, at around 95% battery. Opened it several hours later and it was at 53%.

All my Energy Saver settings are at defaults, so at most it should have dropped no more than a couple of percent.

13" MBP 2015.

Firefox is running slow and is hogging memory. Fans are constantly running with Firefox on just about on every website. Switched to Chrome.
Safari seems to be ok, but Roboform on Safari is not great.
