    Fixed issues that led to crashes on Mac OS X 10.7 Lion.

    cocoabythefire authored
    These fixes remove the use of the File Manager API that was causing crashes on Lion. This should resolve issue #827357. We are now using NSFileManager instead of the older File Manager API, but only on 10.6 and later. These changes should work for those targeting 10.4, but will allow users running 10.7 to still update without crashing.

    Fix authorized file moving code:

    uliwitness authored
    - We now correctly handle the case where the containing directory doesn't allow us adding files without authorization (e.g. /Applications).
    - We do the quarantine release *before* the copy.

    Merge of changes from SVN repository:

    uliwitness authored
    - Changed NTSynchronousTask to also give the status return value and direct stderror output to the outputData.
    - Changed includes so this builds as part of an app, too, not just as a framework
    - Made sure SUAppcast's dealloc releases some leaked ivars.
    - Added infoURL, extracted from link, that can point to a "more Info" page for download-less URLs
    - Added support for version attribute on item so we can support update notifications that don't include an enclosure (e.g. paid upgrades, or upgrades that would require a system update)
    - Added/improved a few description methods to ease debugging.
    - Added SULog so one can ask for a special log with additional information when there are update issues.
    - Added mayUpdateAndRestart for apps that absolutely, positively can't restart right now (e.g. cuz they're burning a CD and would produce a coaster).
    - Added updaterWillRelaunchApplication delegate method, analogous to the notification. Useful to have app delegate quit helper apps during installation.
    - Made SUBasicUpdateDriver's abortUpdate implicitly retain/autorelease the update driver, because the notification center otherwise releases it and it goes away, causing crashes in superclass's abortUpdate.
    - Merge of SUKeepDownloadOnFailedInstallKey and SUFixedHTMLDisplaySizeKey.
    - Avoid a few warnings about missing prototypes
    - Be paranoid, hdiutil can verify the download again, so let it. Better for internal apps where we turn off DSA checks, too.
    - SUHost has an -installationPath now, independent from the bundlePath, so one can normalize the app name from "MyApp 1.1b4" back to "MyApp" Users assume the file name contains the correct version number when there is one in it. Saves support a few round-trips each time.
    - Be better at threading: Try calling non-thread-safe methods on main thread only, and don't assume delegates know when they need to be thread-safe, call them on main thread where possible.
    - Added a method to put the old copy of the app in the trash. 1.5git changed in this spot, so I didn't actually merge the code that uses it back in yet.
    - Fix version comparison so it doesn't get confused by bracketed build numbers in version strings
    - Make sure cancel button is disabled during extraction, otherwise user would crash.
    - Don't put auto-update window at floating window level. It's huge and can't be switched to background! If you're an NSBGOnly where you need that, turn it on only in that case, but don't generally do such nonsense.
    - Hide release notes view if there aren't any.
    - Test whether we are on dial-up before checking for updates in background. It's not nice to cause (possibly expensive) dial-up periodically.
    - Temporarily comment out DSA complaints for easier testing.
    - Don't store (possibly already invalidated) one-shot NSTimers in an ivar. It's bad style. Retain it instead.
    - Decompress some monster expressions with nested method calls in ternary operators and nested in method calls again.
    - Don't use implicit "id" for params or return types.
    - finish_installation now puts up a progress window, so user knows update is still not finished.
    - Use ThreadSafePreferences (included dummy version that uses regular prefs for projects that don't use ThreadSafePreferences).
    - Todo later: Change finish_installation to be prettier.

    - More WIP creating finish_installation that waits

    uliwitness authored
    for quit, updates and relaunches the app, so
    updates don't happen while app is still running.
    NSBundle gets royally confused and points to the
    old path (loading new NIBs into the old app in the
    worst case) when you move a running app.
    - Temp folder is now user's desktop, as
    NSTemporaryDirectory() doesn't stay the same
    between two separate apps, and may be emptied on quit.
    - Relaunch gets created in App Support now, for
    same reasons as above.
    - Less dependency on prefix headers, that only leads
    to lazy, un-reusable code.

  1. performed a code review, specifically:

    Sean McBride authored
    - changed some #include to #import
    - fixed some NULL -> nil Cocoa coding conventions
    - added new compiler warnings and fixed some warnings they generated
    - check for nil from NSTemporaryDirectory
    - added missing files to unit test and test app targets
    - added xcconfig files for unit test target
    - added @private to some ivars
    - changes some variables from signed to unsigned as appropriate
    - changed from base 2 to base 10 measurements of file size, consistent with both the actual meaning of metric prefixes and Apple's new policy as of 10.6
    - reduced some unneeded copy-paste of code
    - fixed failure to check for null from malloc and unneeded check against null before calling free
    - OSErr was incorrectly used instead of OSStatus
    - added some consts & statics to global strings
    - fixed some issues discovered by static analysis
    - fixed some 64bit issues, mostly related to casting and the use of slightly incorrect types/sizes
    - some dealloc methods were using accessors, changed to access ivars directly, as per Apple guidelines
    - removed old NS_DURING, NS_HANDLER, NS_ENDHANDLER macros
    - fixed a bug where immutable data was being mutated
    - removed all instance of "== YES" as they are dangerous
    - removed some redundant nil checks
    - fixed some leaks
    - conditionally replaced deprecated method usage
    - cleanup CF/NSMakeCollectable usage
    - fixed bug in GC where memory could be collected too early due to lack of strong references when using UTF8String
    - prevent passing null to CFRelease

    Bug #389869: "Sparkle runs thread-unsafe code on secondary threads"
    Bug #312995: "Canceling authentication request causes crash on next update"
    Bug #388793: "Need to notify SUUpdateDriverFinishedNotification on main thread"
    The unfortunate side-effect of this fix is that all the file-handling code is now CoreServices-based, since NSFileManager is not thread-safe. This is disgusting and will be stricken from all records when installation is performed by relaunch in Next Major, as it should have been in the first place.
