Mac Developer: Quarantino - xattr com.apple.quarantine in an App
Introducing Quarantino.app for Mac OS X (10.6.8 through 10.10.x) - a simple and effective way to view the signing credentials of an app downloaded from the internet, and if so desired, remove the quarantine attribute (xattr -l com.apple.quarantine).
The fact of the matter is, some OS features are not available to properly signed applications if they are in the quarantine. Don't believe me? See if you can spot the differences in operation between Quarantino.app (quarantined) and after you remove it from the quarantine.
Available for download now
from this website (DeveloperID credentials) and coming soon to the App Store (fingers crossed - in review)!
