Does Sierra no longer sup­port PPTP VPN?

> Ap­ple de­cided that PPTP pro­to­cols are too in­se­cure to sup­port any longer and has re­moved them from Sierra. If you are un­able to switch to a sup­port pro­to­col, such as IPSec, or use an SSL client, there are many apps which still sup­port PPTP, in­clud­ing Aruba, OpenVPN and Shimo.

Why does Sierra’s stor­age sum­mary never com­plete?

> In Sierra, the bar shown on your startup disk in  > About This Mac > Stor­age should give a break­down of free and used space. On some Macs run­ning 10.12, the assess­ment never com­pletes and the bar con­tin­ues to say ‘Cal­cu­lat­ing’. This bug should soon be fixed; try in­stalling the re­cent macOS 10.12.1 up­date.
