Additional information about removal of OS X El Capitan 10.11 support

OS X El Capitan 10.11 is not blocked. We could not certify against this OS because of an issue with Custom Web Publishing (CWP) that affects all current supported versions of FileMaker Server. See FileMaker announces end of support for OS x El Capitan 10.11 with FileMaker Server 16, 15, or 14 in the FileMaker Knowledge Base.


For all versions of FileMaker Server on OS X 10.11, if you deploy CWP or redeploy (which includes running an updater), deployment will not finish and CWP will not work.


If you are not currently running CWP on OS X 10.11, although not certified, FileMaker Server 16.0.4 may work as expected.
