New Hotifx r2.4.2-p01

Greetings,

We have just released a new hotfix for Zerynth r2.4.2 that fixes the issues with Zerynth Studio on Mac.

If you did update Zerynth Studio to the version r2.4.2 before today and you found impossible to start our IDE again, you need to delete the .zerynth2 folder in your home and download the r2.4.2 version again by starting our installer from scratch.

This update fixes the Google and Facebook login too.

We at Zerynth are truly sorry about the issues that Mac users have been through, but we hope that everything will be less problematic from now on.

Thank you all for your patience and happy coding!

Thanks for getting this hot fix out so quickly.

[error] Can’t burn bootloader! --> Can’t convert ‘NoneType’ object to str implicitly
