XFence and High Sierra
Will XFENCE support macOS 10.13 High Sierra on day 1 of the OS release?

While it is impossible to say for certain as only a developer preview is available, as of now it appears XFENCE functions nominally on the developer preview version of macOS High Sierra which indicates that it should also work fine on the final release version.
We will continue to evaluate the situation as new macOS High Sierra preview releases are made available and we will aim to have an XFENCE release that works well with High Sierra but unfortunately we cannot make any guarantees until the final macOS build is available.

Oh that's fine. At worst I'm hoping XFENCE has official High Sierra compatibility within a few weeks of public release.
Thanks for the quick response
See this Technical Note from Apple:

Oh yeah I heard about that. I can easily approve the kext. It looks like XFENCE works in High Sierra so far, but it probably needs to be updated to add some new built in processes to the default whitelist.
I am hoping to see an update come soon.
