Monterey and Vellum 2.8.9 Now Available

Apple has released Monterey, the newest version of macOS. 

If you upgrade your Mac to Monterey, make sure you’re running the latest version of Vellum (2.8.9). You can do that using Check for Updates.

Vellum 2.8.9 includes fixes for issues with print generation that could occur in Monterey. If you experience any other issues with Monterey, please let us know.

Update 11/5/21: A low-level bug in Monterey can sometimes cause Vellum (and other applications) to crash on Macs with Intel chips. Apple believes they have a fix for this issue, but we don’t have any information for when it will be released. As a result, we do not currently recommend updating to macOS Monterey.

Update 12/14/21: Apple has just released macOS 12.1, which fixes this low-level bug.

Vellum 2.8.8

Vellum 2.8.8 fixes a hang that could occur when a Page Break text feature appears at the end of a chapter.

Also in this update:

  • Addressed case where Flow for an Inline Image would not work on Kindle
  • Fixed issue where specific font/trim size combinations could cause inconsistent print layout
  • Improved accessibility validation of EPUB files

This release is a free update, available now.
