I've been getting feedback from a few customers who are using my product (WeatherSnoop 3) that the VCP driver for the CP210X is not working under Mac OS X 10.12 Sierra Developer Preview.
Is Silicon Labs testing this driver under this new and upcoming operating system, and if so, what are the results so far?
We've received a few reports of problems with 10.12, we're looking into it. I will reply to this thread when I have more information.
I use WeatherSnoop to upload weather data form my Davis VantageVUE weather station. After installing Mac OS 10.12 (beta Sierra) the CP210x USB to UART Bridge VCP Driver no longer works; hence, I am dead in the water and no longer able to propagate my data to WeatherUnderground and other similar sites.
This has a significant effect on my business and my Web sites. Please advise as to whether a new driver is in the works and when it might be expected?
Our tester found that the problem has gone away with the latest version of MacOS 10.12. Can you try updating your OS and seeing if this solves the problem?

Thank for your response. I am a beta tester but not a developer, so the latest public beta I have is 10.12 Beta (16A238m). The problem still exists in this version.
The 2nd public beta of Sierra was released.
With this release, it now works normally.

You are correct. Just downloaded the 2nd public beta and the driver is working properly and uploading my weather data via WeatherSnoop. Thanks for the help.
Just installed Public Beta 3 of Mac Sierra and the driver is again non-functional.
Any issues with the final version of Mac OS Sierra?
Working fine with final Master Beta of Sierra, I'm happy to report. Do not have the final release version.
