Alfred 4.6 Released: Ready for macOS Monterey
Next week, macOS Monterey will be released to the general public, after a few months of beta.
In preparation, we released Alfred 4.6 on Friday, an update which includes compatibility enhancements for macOS Monterey. We've been actively using Monterey for a few months, with Alfred running beautifully on this new version of macOS.
Workflows and PHP
One key difference with macOS Monterey is that PHP is no longer bundled by default.
If you install PHP (e.g. via homebrew), most PHP-based workflows will continue to work without an issue, as the workflow script objects in Alfred 4.6 have been updated to be aware of alternative bin paths. If the workflow developer has hard coded paths within their workflow, you'll need to seek out an updated version on our forum or the creator's site.
If you are using workflows that use PHP and haven't installed it, when the workflow is run, you'll see a pop-up with the option to open the workflow to edit it or disable it.
We've also updated the built-in workflows for Google Suggest and Amazon Suggest to use ruby instead of php; If you use these, delete them and re-install them from the Workflows > [+] > Getting Started menu.
For help with your workflows, PHP and Alfred in general, you can join us on Alfred Forum where you'll find our fantastic community of workflow creators and Alfred users of all levels of experience.
