Workaround for GitKraken Big Sur Issues

Are you a Mac OS GitKraken user? Did you recently update to Big Sur?

😬 We get it; you’re experiencing some issues, so we’re here to walk you through a temporary workaround so you can get Kraken. 

Workaround for GitKraken Big Sur Performance Issues

codesign --remove-signature /Applications/GitKraken.app/Contents/Frameworks/GitKraken\ Helper\ \(Renderer\).app

Please note: if you update GitKraken to a newer version (such as v7.3.2 -> v7.4.0), you will need to run this command afterwards.
