It’s been a busy month! We’ve had loads of motion in kernel land, in addition to some tooling enhancements and reverse engineering classes.

To make issues worse, Apple can flip the swap and block any non-macOS working system at any time.
The M1 is spectacular, however provided that you’re into macOS.
