Prince 15 does not run on macOS 10.14

Downloading and installing Prince 15 to run on macOS 10.14 produces a binary that fails to even start. This has been repeated with the 'latest' version 20221028.

Reproducing instructions:

  • wget
  • unzip
  • prince-20221028-macos/ "$PWD/prince-install-20221028" < /dev/null
  • prince-install-20221028/bin/prince

Thanks for letting us know, we may need to rebuild with different settings to ensure Prince still works on older versions of MacOS.
We have created an updated build that should work with 10.13 and up:

This will replace the previous build shortly.
Confirmed as working on my macOS 10.14 system!

Thank you! :-)
