Hi Willemx,

Upgrading quickly MacOS is by experience always a challenge. You must to
wait few weeks before. Apple do not do the job well years after years,
certainly because the maintainers team is less important due to ios like
devices to maintains.

So, i always wait a little bit before to upgrade and start to recompile
digiKam. Especially with this MacOS release which break a lots of

digiKam is compiled under MacOS using Macports. I'm sure that Macports is
broken with few packages and time is mandatory to port all codes or to wait
extra project to update source codes.

Another point is the XCode compiler, which is derived from Clang : New
release == problems ! So i'm always working with the -1 version, which
always work as expected since at least few months.

Voilà, this kind of situation is the standard now under MacOS : never use
the x.0.0 release of Apple stuff..
