Compatible only with macOS 10.15 (Catalina).

macOS uses its Gatekeeper feature to prevent users from running externally-hosted 3rd party software, such as dosbox-staging. See the section below to learn how to fix it.

Homebrew

The build is also available via Homebrew package.

brew install dosbox-staging

Development snapshot builds

You can always see what's cooking on the master branch :)

These builds might be slow or unstable as they are designed with developers and testers in mind: download instructions for snapshot builds.

Explanation

Apple's Gatekeeper feature only permits the running of notarized software, one aspect of which involves developers making yearly payments to Apple.

As dosbox-staging is a volunteer effort, we are not in a position to make such payments and therefore ask users to bypass Apple's Gatekeeper manually.

Building from source

Of course you can always build dosbox-staging straight from the source. Send us patches if you improve something! :)
