Today we released Cartographica 1.5.2, which is a bug fix and feature enhancement release. This version builds on Cartographica 1.5, released in June and provides some specific bug fixes.
Cartographica 1.5.2 is available to all users with a Cartographica license.
Formal release notes are on macgis.com Release Notes, but here are the highlights:
- Moved PostgreSQL driver internal to the GDAL system to fix a problem in macOS 11/10.16 [CARTOMAC-1918]

Cartographica 1.5 supports macOS X High Sierra and later (10.13.6+). Going forward, we'll likely move to adopt new Apple technologies sooner and that's likely to not only result in quicker release cycles, but will mean moving the minimum requirements more quickly than we have in the past.
As of last testing (macOS 11 beta 6), Cartographica 1.5.2 is compatible with macOS 11. Prior versions may cause a crash on current test versions of macOS 11, due to a library that was removed by Apple unexpectedly.
