Last week, the Chromium Mac bots were updated to use the 10.15 SDK to compile. It has stuck, and so we're continuing on. I'm planning to land https://crrev.com/c/2033986 which will require the 10.15 SDK. Because the 10.15 SDK comes with Xcode 11, this will mean that you will need to be running macOS 10.14 to build Chromium.

This is scheduled to happen on 18 February. Please update before then, and if there are any questions please let me know.

Indeed.

Note that you're welcome to try to convince earlier versions of Xcode to use the 10.15 SDK, and you could probably get it to work somewhat, but it's probably not worth your time.

(who for a while, for building Chromium, on his 10.11 Mac hacked a 10.12 SDK to look like a 10.14 SDK and managed to keep it working for months)

Oh, nevermind, just noticed this is indeed the lowest version of macOS supported by Xcode 11.

Did you mean "running macOS 10.15", as I'm not sure how macOS 10.15 SDK is available to macOS 10.14?
