Could someone please test my app Brandsonic Web on Big Sur for me? I have no way of testing it myself right now. I would also like a screenshot of it running. If someone could do this for me I’d greatly appreciate it. You can download it here. Thanks in advance.

Can someone please test whether Adobe Photoshop CS6 launches on MacOS Big Sur? Photoshop CS6 doesnt "Officially" launch on Catalina but i am currently using photoshop CS6 on Catalina using a workaround by clicking "Show Package Contents" on the Photoshop CS6 App and then going to the MacOS Folder within and then launching the app from there which works just fine on Catalina.

You say Netbeans 12 is working, but as soon as I access a project properties dialog, the whole program hangs and all the widgets start blinking like crazy. I haven't been successful with any version of Netbeans on Big Sur.
Same issue here. Any tips or workaround?

One thing I haven't mentioned that doesn't run properly under Big Sur is Rod Smith's rEFInd Boot Manager for selecting your OS at startup. It doesn't run properly with Catalina as well.
Prior to Catalina it would see my Mac system (Sierra, Mojave, etc), my Windows system (Win 7, Win 10), and any implementations of Linux I had installed (Linux Mint, Ubuntu).
After I installed Catalina, it doesn't see the Mac OS any more. Correction -- It sees the MacOS system, but once I boot into it, the boot partition is modified so that rEFInd doesn't work any more. I then have to re-install rEFInd.
I think it is because the Boot Rom has been updated.

So, now, if I want to select Windows or Linux, I let it boot as normal and select the OS from rEFInd.
If I want to select MacOS, I have to hold the Option key down and choose the one I want.
At least it works.

Beta 10 of macOS Big Sur causes visual problems with 1Password.

The preferences window is transparent, meaning everything behind that window will be seen as well.

Not for me. I wonder what is causing the difference.
Is this transparency only for 1Password preference or is it for other apps too?
Have you reported it to 1Password support and what do they say?

As has been noted before, BackupLoupe 3.0 can't read TM backups on APFS backup drive. The developer has a preview of 3.1 which fixes this and seems to work better than ever. So a great new version is on the way.

PIA VPN has an alpha program out which I am currently using on Big Sur. It does enable split tunneling and is working. I don't know when it will go to Beta and then final release but hey, progress.
