We just got a new apple m1 machine. And Pharo is running on it.
Under Rosetta, Pharo is slow but running. Now the first good news is that the Pharo Stack VM (no JIT) is running much faster natively. We will make the VM public soon. And we will start working on checking the ARM JIT for M1. We have some pending tasks around the VM and other that should be done first. So we will expect to start working in it in a week max 10 days.
