Are complex packages that use for example NLopt, Makie, PackageCompiler etc expected to work on macOS with the native ARM version of Julia, or is it more likely that they work with Rosetta?
Is it possible to add continues integration testing for packages using the native ARM version of Julia for MacOS?
I’ve yet to encounter a package that doesn’t work on Mac aarch64 under 1.8, but I haven’t used any of the packages you’ve listed beyond NLOpt.
All works fine on Mac and native ARM version of Julia…
The problem was unrelated to the hardware, see: https://github.com/aenarete/KiteSimulators.jl/issues/9
