Smart Crash Reports for Mac1.5

18 August 2008

Allows CrashReporter app to notify developer of bugs.

What is Smart Crash Reports for Mac

Smart Crash Reports is an enhancement for the Apple's CrashReporter application introduced in Mac OS X 10.4. It allows 3rd party developers to register their products in manner so if the eligible application crashes, the crash log is sent to the developer as well as Apple. This greatly enhances the user experience of the OS, and allows developers to receive crashes and improve their software in a timely manner.

Smart Crash Reports is completely free to use for both users and developers; Unsanity is providing it as a service to the community.

What's new in Smart Crash Reports

Version 1.5:
  • The Installer plugin now checks to make sure SCR has the correct permissions on 10.5.
  • Updated to support Mac OS X 10.5
  • Now supports registering for SCR in Info.plist entries of bundles (Frameworks, QuickTime plugins, Photoshop plugins,
  • Safari plugins, et cetera). Developers no longer need to call UnsanitySCR_RegisterMatchSpecifier() bundles (in most cases). SDK: UnsanitySCR_Install now installs Smart Crash Reports with the correct permissions required to work on Mac OS X 10.5.
  • SDK: UnsanitySCR_Install now pretends as if SCR is not installed if it is installed inside the user's home folder on Mac OS X 10.5.x as Mac OS X 10.5 will not load SCR from the user's home folder. Behaves as before on Mac OS X 10.4.x.
  • SDK: Worked around a problem on Mac OS X that led to repeated calls UnsanitySCR_RegisterMatchSpecifier creating new entries in SCR's preferences when Mac OS X thought that two equal CFTypeRefs were not equal.
  • SDK: On Mac OS X 10.5.x, UnsanitySCR_Install no longer allows you to install in a non-global manner due to the new restrictions in Mac OS X 10.5.x. Behaviour on Mac OS X 10.4.x is unchanged.
  • Important Note: On Mac OS X 10.5.x, Smart Crash Reports must not be installed in the user's home folder (~/) as it will prevent SCR from loading even if SCR is installed globally. If you are a developer installing SCR, make sure SCR is not in the user's home folder on Mac OS X 10.5.x and move it to the trash (FSMoveObjectToTrashSync()) if possible.

Someone should release a patch that removes all traces of Smart Crash Reports. I can't believe how otherwise reputable vendors include this shoddy software with their installs - without the option to NOT install. Reckless and irresponsible if the software is to be deployed in enterprise environments that have authenticating proxy servers. Don Montalvo, NYC

I had trouble with before (as have many other users), and have taken measures to keep it from surreptitiously installing. Given the early history of this software with OS 10.5, I think you'd be crazy to install it.

Version 1.0.2 crashes Safari on 10.4.8 when Quicktime 7.1.3 loads certain plug-ins. Just like the other crap from Unsanity, it works great on the OS when they release it, but then Apple changes something and it causes all sorts of problems. Not apple's fault if you are using unpublished APIs, kids. Developers, please don't bundle this crap with your applications. It's a true disservice to your users. Besides.... isn't something that drops inside another application and sends a users data to an unauthorized third party a cause of concern for anyone? the words spyware and privacy violation come to mind.

Apple really needs to integrate this into the OS. Otherwise you have to depend on the end user installing this as well as the developer integrating their app.

From all appearances, this seems a very good product. I have not had a chance to really use it yet, none of my apps have crashed. I rarely ever have apps crash on me, certainly not Apple apps (not since, what, OS X 10.1.5?) But I was impressed with the straightforward installer, and how the installed files and their pathways was easily viewed from within the installer. Thanks to the developer(s) for making it free.
