Here’s Steinberg’s answer to our waiting, as this could be expected: rather than providing us with doing their homework and having CP8 ready for Mc OSX El Capitan, the answer is a new version we need to pay for ?
The update for CB 8 is scheduled for the end of December. I think I saw/read 12/27/2015.
Steinberg was always releasing at least one maintenance update of older version after releasing a new version. I would expect the same, here.
The difference here is that it is hardly a catch-up ‘maintenance’ version that is needed, but something to restore proper workability.
