Apple's High Sierra Developer Beta 3 created a monkey wrench for Little Snitch users, many of whom had just installed Obdev's second beta of Little Snitch 4.0. In fact, version 4.0 will not work at all with the latest Mac OS, prompting the incremental upgrade to Little Snitch 4.01.

Also, although cracked versions of Little Snitch 4.0 Beta 2 are freely available online, so far, serial numbers for the 4.01 version have not yet surfaced. That means that users will either have to buy the software (OMG!) or limp along with the demo version.
You've heard all about the new "High Sierra" version of MacOS. In some cases, however, the excitement of the new features can be offset by the fear of looming compatibility problems. Fortunately, with regard to Little Snitch, you have no need to worry.
Little Snitch 4.0 entered its public beta version without much fanfare. Still, you shouldn't let the low-key nature of the rollout fool you: Little Snitch is now compatible with the High Sierra 10.13 beta.
Little Snitch 4.0
The "4.0" moniker might lead you to expect a major feature upgrade for Little Snitch. If you expect something earth-shattering, you'll probably feel disappointed. For the most part, the "4.0" simply identifies the version of Little Snitch that will work with High Sierra.
