Sooner or later, every product starts being compared with the competitors. And it seems that we, too, are slowly approaching this point. I would like to share my thoughts on this. I’d like to say right away that this is not a comparison of solutions from other manufacturers with Valentina. Rather a short commentary.
Modern versions of Windows have a built-in security system which checks that executable files are digitally signed. These signatures help identify the program’s origin and also help protect the program files from tampering. Previously, Valentina was also distributed with a developer’s signature, and now we have lost that capability. In this article, we’ll talk about why this has happened and the implications for Valentina users.
