Scrivener 2.4.1 Now Available (and Submitted to the MAS)

If you are using Mac OS X 10.6.x, and purchased Scrivener via the Mac App Store, do not attempt to update your software at this time. There is a small glitch in the App Store delivery system that is causing the downloaded software to fail, and once you’ve downloaded the update there is no way to go back to an older version using the MAS. We are working to fix this problem post haste, and will update this message when it is safe to update.

If you have already downloaded, and are getting the error which asks you to delete the program and download again, there is no need to do that. This problem will not be fixed by downloading the software, nor by resetting preferences. If you find yourself locked out, please refer to the instructions above, for using the direct-sale version on either a temporary or permanent basis. If you are leaning toward the latter, you should review the article on migration, so that your settings and automatic backups can be placed where the direct-sale version can read them. Whether you use the direct-sale version temporarily or permanently, you can go on working in your projects as you have.

This message only pertains to those using Mac OS X 10.6. If you are running a newer version of the operating system, it is safe to update via the MAS. If you are unsure of which version of the operating system you computer uses, you can check this information by clicking on the Apple logo in the top-left corner of the screen, and selecting “About This Mac” from the menu.
