Update problems on macOS 10.10 and 10.11

We've had some reports regarding problems with the latest updates of Vectoraster 7 and Patternodes 2 on systems running macOS 10.11 or earlier.

While we're working on fixing these we've rolled back the initial download versions here on the site to the previous versions, and restricted updates to users with macOS 10.12 or later. This means the users with macOS 10.12 or later can still update and everything should work fine, but users with earlier macOS version can still use the products until the problem is fixed so they can update too.

Patternodes 2.1.1 update

Today a new smaller update to Patternodes 2 was released. This update primarily fixes a couple of bugs in the 2.1.0 release. The new version also adds a new feature that highlights elements in the preview created or modified my the currently selected node. This doesn't affect export and you can turn it off in the settings if you don't want it, but hopefully it'l make it easier for everyone to keep track of what nodes apply to what elements.
