Here's your Mini vMac Update for today:

"Today’s Mini vMac Development source snapshot fixes a reported bug where the Control Mode did’t work on ports other than OS X. This was broken when the “-km” option was added.

Also, I’ve put in a work around for the Path Randomization misfeature added in macOS Sierra (10.12). If an application that Apple thinks is trustworthy is bundled together with malicious library code in the same folder, the malicious code may be run by the application. The silly way that Apple has chosen to prevent this is to in effect move the application somewhere else before running it, so it can’t find the library code. It can’t find anything else in the application’s folder either, which is a problem for Mini vMac, which looks for things in its folder, such as the ROM image file. So now the Cocoa port of Mini vMac will try to find the original location of the application, and use that instead of the location it is running from, when looking for the ROM image and other things. (Mini vMac doesn’t look for external library code, so Path Randomization has no benefit.) This is done using some undocumented SecTranslocate calls as suggested by “Objective-See” and Jeff Johnson. Previously, I have recommended using “xattr -rc <path to Mini vMac>” from the command line to disable Path Randomization. This will no longer be needed for Mini vMac 36."

Ah; this explains some odd results on bundled SheepShaver as well. Thanks for passing on the update!
