Hey macOS folks!
If you’re a Mac user who has been encountering issues upgrading Mudlet to 4.17, then you’re not alone.
The issue is related to a 3rd party cross-platform update backend service that does not support the functionality that 4.16 → 4.17 upgrade specifically requires. Unfortunately, the person responsible for maintaining the backend has been unresponsive for a couple of years, and it is uncertain if the updating backend will continue to work in the future.
As a result, if you’re currently using version 4.16, you will need to upgrade to 4.17 manually by downloading it from the website. We understand that this might be frustrating – we apologize for any inconvenience this has caused and thank you for your patience and understanding.
