Hi all!

I am happy to announce a new release of AuctionSieve – 3.0.0!


This release

  • now supports Java 9 on macOS!
  • has a fix for prices not showing in category sieves
  • has rate limiting to get rid of eBay 503 errors


Important info for Mac users!

If you are using a Mac, download the newest version of AuctionSieve from http://www.auctionsieve.com/downloads/

Also, make sure you are running a recent version of Java, available at http://www.java.com/ (http://www NULL.java NULL.com/)


Why a major version jump?

You may be wondering why the major version jump?

It’s a way to mark an important bump in technology – both Java and Mac.


Major version jump for Java

AuctionSieve now requires at least Java 6.

To make sure you are running a recent version of Java, just download the latest one available at http://www.java.com/ (http://www NULL.java NULL.com/)

Most people even on older systems are able to update to at least Java 6.

Version 2.8.4 is the last version of AuctionSieve that will work with Java 5 and contains some special code to prevent updating unless your Java is updated.


Major version jump for Mac

I no longer support Mac OS X versions older than 10.5 (Leopard).

The installer has been modified to make use of the latest Java on your system and will no longer prompt to install the outdated Apple Java 6.

This means even Java 9 on the latest macOS 10.13 (High Sierra) is supported.

Please ensure you download the latest version of AuctionSieve from the download page instead of using the auto-update within the app.
