You may try to copy to your new machine the whole folder where you have installed LMTX on your old machine, and then run
there. Indeed if this works for your current LMTX folder you'll need someone to prepare a whole working folder of updated LMTX. As long as I have a PowerBook with the old chip (and running MacOS 14), I may do this for you and then put a zip file on Dropbox. However I may be too pushed to get a new M1 PowerBook in the future.

I know that their are no ARM binaries yet for ConTeXt but Apple say that intel binaries can be run on an ARM using the Rosetta emmulation software. I tried to download the intel binaries using the install.sh that comes with the context-osx-64.zip file but of course it does not recognise the ARM chip and suggests contacting the mailing list. In some previous emails to the list, in which I was a participent, (see the post "new upload" of 26/11/2020) their was some discussion on how Context could be set up to work on these machines by building binaries using Xcode. I am afraid this is well above my skillset so I was wondering how I could get the Intel binaries and then set up ConTeXt running with the Rosetta emulation software. I should be able to do that. If this is possible, I would be very happy to do some testing and report back my experiences to the list.
