I tried that, but the problem was still there.

What finally solved it was: going to Preferences > Editor > Syntax  
Coloring, switching from LaTeX to None, restarting TeXworks, switching  
the same pref back from None to LaTeX, and whoops: LaTeX syntax  
coloring is here again.

There seems to be problems with the French localization though: after  
installing this new binary, I had menus partly in French and in  
English; realized Preferences > General > Interface Locale was  
English; set it to French; now the menus are totally in French; tried  
to set Interface Locale back to English again; no effect, the menus  
are still in French; went to System Preferences > International, set  
English on top of the language list; no effect, TeXworks won't switch  
back from French to English.

I tried throwing away ~/Library/TeXworks and ~/Library/Preferences/ 
org.tug.TeXworks.plist, and even starting a new session for good  
measure. That didn't work: TeXworks insists on being all in French!
