Thank you so much for this. I can confirm that this release is working fine on Mojave and Big Sur.

The dialog box still contains the Y10k patch which is no longer needed, links to all the network enabler resources, and a very short list of software that I personally like (ViewFrame).

Under MacOS if you click Einstein menu (next to Apple menu) there is almost nothing there. I think that release version there would be great.

What about Essentials menu instead of hiding it in Help? I was not aware that you implemented those super-cool option under Help, as I usually do not open Help menu :D

My suggestion for Essential software:
