Indeed - but as far as I know this should be the same for any 
application not signed by a (quite expensive!) Apple certificate - 
including all recent builds of TeXworks.
Anyway, you can get around it by Ctrl+Clicking on the icon and selecting 
Open (which should give you the same dialog, but with the additional 
option to open the app regardless of whether Apple has verified it or not).

Kind regards,
