Developers and security researchers using the CodeQL CLI and VS Code extension can now build databases and analyze code on machines powered by Apple Silicon (e.g. Apple M1).

In order to use the CodeQL CLI and/or the VS Code extension on Apple Silicon, please make sure to install the Xcode command-line developer tools and Rosetta 2.

For detailed instructions on how to set up the CLI on supported platforms, please refer to the CodeQL CLI guide.
