Hi all,


If you are running VW 2019 I would highly recommend NOT to upgrade at this time, as zoomer noted above there are issues with Big Sur in 2019.


If you are running VW 2020 make sure that you have SP5, this has some critical crash fixes for Big Sur.


The initial release of VW 2021 will be fine to use based on our testing.


But as Juan mentioned, Apple is still releasing new betas, so you never know if something will break...proceed with caution!


Thanks again for continued testing and feedback,

Any updates to this issue? 

I'm  Running a new 16" Mac Book Pro with VW 2021, SP2.   Still on Catalina, 10.15.7.  wondering if it is good idea to upgrade to Big Sur.


I get occasional crashes, various circumstances including editing within a viewport or the hatch window. The are frozen beachball crashes requiring force quit, very time consuming.    Also, the fan comes on sometimes when I start up VW, without any hard rendering or  task.

Optimist in me thinks these problems will diminish if I upgrade.
