XQuartz 2.8.0 has been released for macOS 10.9 or later. I've been in touch with a couple of users and they report no issues so far. This is the first version with Apple Silicon support.
The XQuartz project is an open-source effort to develop a version of the X.Org X Window System that runs on OS X. Together with supporting libraries and applications, it forms the X11.app that Apple shipped with OS X versions 10.5 through 10.7.
Changes in 2.8.0
- Adds native support for Apple Silicon Macs.
- Removes support for versions of macOS older than 10.9
- Uses system libXplugin
- Removes build-time support for deprecated X11 libraries:
- Removes deprecated commands:
- Removes xpyb
- Removes older libpng
