[poll] What macOS version are users running?

I’m wanting to update some of our core Darwin/macOS stuff in Nixpkgs, but there’s a chance it could break older versions of macOS. Does anyone have a version of macOS that they need to be supported? We should be able to support 10.12, 10.13, and 10.14 very easily.

If this were to happen, you could still use older Nixpkgs channels, but nixpkgs-unstable and release-19.03 would be broken for you if running pre-10.12. Right now I believe we can support back to 10.10.

This all comes from some updated syscalls that XNU has added. Some software like Gnulib has already started to use them. It could be possible to support these older versions - it just gets trickier.

  • macOS Mojave (10.14) (Darwin 18)
  • macOS High Sierra (10.13) (Darwin 17)
  • macOS Sierra (10.12) (Darwin 16)
  • OS X El Capitan (10.11) (Darwin 15)
  • OS X Yosemite (10.10) (Darwin 14)
  • OS X Mavericks (10.9) (Darwin 13)
