Simon 5 is coming soon!

Simon version 5 is currently in beta testing. It is a massive update, introducing a much-requested feature: syncing the Simon data between multiple Macs, plus a Simon Status service, a Link Checker filter, improved Find filter, iMessage and Speak Error notifiers, a new app icon, and much more.

Important: please note that Simon 5 requires a minimum of macOS 10.12 (Sierra), and will be a paid upgrade from Simon 4 after the beta. Purchasers since September 1, 2020 automatically get a version 5 license (that also works in previous versions).

CAS Login passthrough

I am testing Simon to see what functionality it has. One issue i am trying to figure out is how to pass authentication through a CAS authenticated web application. CAS is a central authentication service from the java sig: http://www.jasig.org/cas.

Thanks
Ken

Re: CAS Login passthrough

Simon can authenticate via cookies, POST or GET parameters, or authentication challenge. If CAS supports one of those mechanisms, or can work with script output, you shouldn't have difficulty.
