Great. The thanks need to be directed towards David Matthews, who is refining
Poly/ML 5.9 towards a release where ARM will work natively (on Linux, macOS,
Windows), but be still somewhat inefficiently due to lack of code optimization.

I have already built many components for arm64-linux, and a few for
arm64-darwin (external provers etc.).

Java 15 in Isabelle2021 has already been native arm64-darwin, and this
continues with Java 17 in Isabelle2021-1.

In contrast, the native Poly/ML arm64_32-darwin (and arm64-darwin) is only
there for testing, to sort out remaining problems. On macOS, x86_64_32-darwin
performs much better with Rosetta 2 and will remain the default for now.

You can try ARM by augmenting $ISABELLE_HOME_USER/etc/settings like this:


This will build an image for Isabelle/HOL on startup of Isabelle/jEdit.
