I thought it might be good to have a central location to look for software and hardware that have some issues with Big Sur.
Bartender 3 is not compatible
Bartender 4 is in beta now, and is compatible with Big Sur. It is a paid upgrade (US$7.50), which I’m happy to pay. It’s free while in beta, and for four weeks after.
Bartender 3 is part of Setapp – fingers crossed that Bartender 4 will also be.
Karabiner also needs to be updated (working version/beta is available)
SoundSource, Fission, and AudioHijack by Rogue Amoeba are incompatible.
FYI: Rogue Amoeba has a status page where you can monitor the compatibility of their products. Hopefully, they’ll all be compatible when (or soon after) Big Sur launches.
I check it everyday lol.
Sound siphon (similar to loop back) is in beta right now and apparently had Big Sur capabilities.
Don’t forget RoaringApps. They’ve been at it for years. Sometimes a bit hit and miss, but useful nonetheless. I see they also have a category for Apple Silicon.
