ADL: AutoDockTools / MGLTools Compatability with Mac OS 11?

In addition to virtual machines, the other Mac OS workaround I’m aware of
is ‘upgrading’ to an earlier OS version after booting via an external
bootable drive.

While we’re on the topic though, any guidance about anticipated M1
compatibility? (Assuming use of VM’s
or downgraded OS’s).

Best,
Rick
