DIVA v2.15.0

We’re happy to (finally) announce macOS 10.12 Sierra support! Along the journey we’ve also improved the performance and reliability of mounting drives on the Mac.

2.15 also brings an improved project archiving system, ensuring we grab all files within a project (not just bins), and more ways to generate a zip archive.

We’ve got a full write up on the new release, with training videos, and links to updated help documentation.
