I have also upgraded and I find that everything still works the same as before.
The only restriction on an unsigned application is that the first time you open it, you need to select the “open” menu item rather than simply double-clicking on some file. Then you need to confirm that you want the application to open.
It would certainly be nice to be able to open a theory file simply by double-clicking on it. A long time ago, I had this working by some low level hack, but I haven’t been able to reproduce it.

> Another note on the OS X "app": I've recently experimented with a current fork of the JavaAppLauncher https://bitbucket.org/infinitekind/appbundler that also supports file associations. It somehow worked, but only after one failed attempt to start the application for the very first time, probably due to the lack of signed application.
