Hi there, I downloaded the 1.3.2-0.5.9 OS X package, and running it informs me that "Mac OSX 10.11 'El Capitan' is not supported"

Is there a timeframe for supporting the OS?
Would me switching to the nightlies be of benefit? (And yes, I am familiar with the risks of nightly builds, we run a very similar process internally)

    Hello Jono,

    OSX 10.11 introduced a security measure that broke a very important dependency and I'm currently waiting for it to be fixed.

    There's an issue on Arachni's tracker you can follow in order to stay updated: https://github.com/Arachni/arachni/issues/619#issuecomment-145146328

    As for the nightlies they won't help, you can however try to build a package for your system with:

    wget -O - https://raw.github.com/Arachni/build-scripts/master/bootstrap.sh | bash

    This requires that you have a build environment though.

    Tasos L.

    Fantastic, thanks :)
    I should have pretty much all deps for the required build environment, so I may give building it a go.

    No problem.

    I'm closing this discussion for now but if the build scripts give you any trouble feel free to re-open it.
