I wonder if the code base for Sage will be recompiled for Apple's new M1 chip. Big Sur's XCode supposedly makes the task easy peasy. However, I doubt anything is easy when dealing with massively complex software. Although I am happy with my Intel-based MacBook Air, I will eventually need to upgrade to Apple Silicon. Any thoughts?

I would, but I don't own a new Apple M1 machine. gravatar ( 2020-11-12 13:59:51 +0200 )edit

You can also help by sponsoring sagemath, so that we can buy one of these new laptops :

Interesting! Hope you don't mind a couple of questions ;) How did you install it? Is it running natively or translated from Intel? Can you use jupyter notebooks in a browser? Did you run the tests to check whether it's really fully functional?
