If you're on macOS 11.5 or later and have a CheckBook document on a thumb drive or an external drive that hasn't been reformatted for APFS or Mac OS Extended, this is the update for you. We chronicled a major data loss issue between macOS 11.5 and FAT volumes at https://www.splasmata.com/?p=3702, but the short of it is NSFileManager and copyfile(), used by literally almost every application that touches a filesystem on your Mac, can no longer copy files directly to FAT volumes with any guarantee of success, leaving completely empty files in their wake. 2.6.21 abandons these APIs on macOS 11.5 or later when the destination is a FAT volume or is shared over something besides SMB or AFP. Even so, our strong recommendation is to reformat your FAT volumes and make sure you're sharing network volumes over SMB or AFP as soon as possible. This release has a few other tweaks, including a fix for an issue that could prevent the Accounts list from redrawing after an Account is unlocked, so you won't want to miss it.
