Hi Alex,

This has been discussed a couple of times on the list. François-Xavier Coudert kindly took the time about a month ago (see emails from Dec. 7) to produce a working version. As he said:

If anyone is interested to test it and report issues/bugs, here is my current “best effort” build for macOS Catalina with new features enabled:

- Retina display support (and it looks really good!)
- Command line editing (you can use arrows in the console to go back to previous commands, etc)
- Fixed icon so it’s perfectly crisp on Retina displays

The build is available at:
The icon file, in case someone wants it:

Know issue:
- When resizing the window, it will become red until you perform any further action (click inside or rotate the structure).

Just thought everyone should be aware. If you update to the newest OSX, you will not be able to just download VMD from the website - you will have to compile a 64-bit version from source.
