Rogue Amoeba has issued Fission 2.7.1 with initial compatibility for macOS 12 Monterey. The audio editor also improves support for some WAV codecs (pcm_s24le), works around a performance issue with Quick Look that could prevent previewing of chapterized audio files, removes the Share to SoundCloud integration due to breaking changes in their API, updates the waveform display to prevent issues where it could appear incorrectly, and makes improvements to Fission’s built-in updating system and debugging tools.
As of this release, Rogue Amoeba will no longer offer Fission in the Mac App Store due to Apple’s failure to improve the store. Rogue Amoeba’s Paul Kafasis writes:
When you couple the many shortcomings and issues with Apple’s restrictive polices that preclude most of our software from appearing there, the Mac App Store is clearly a poor fit for us. With the removal of Fission, we no longer have any products in the Mac App Store.
If you own the Mac App Store edition of Fission, Rogue Amoeba makes it easy to transition to the direct download edition (you must have launched the Mac App Store edition at least once on your current Mac).
