[Chimera-users] Mac-Book Pro

Hi Bobby,

  We did some magic to the Chimera distribution (signing it) so Macs should not say it is from an unidentified developer.  But maybe that magic has expired because I get the same behavior that the Chimera 1.10.1 says it comes from an unknown developer when I download and run it on a Mac 10.10.4 system.  We will look into it.

  In the mean time, the way to get around this is to ctrl-click on the Chimera icon and choose Open from the menu that appears.  Then the dialog that appears saying it is from an unknown developer will still allow you to start Chimera.  You will only need to use this trick once, then it will start without any dialogs.

  Thanks for telling us of this problem.
