Latest beta has a rewrite of the update checker; it's a straight port from PyObjC to Objective-C. You can test it using

/path/to/TeX\ Live\ Utility.app/Contents/MacOS/texliveupdatecheck

in Terminal. The code to install it and schedule it is _not_ in place, and will take some additional thought for future versioning and updates.

The other major change in this beta is that the Python framework is now a fat binary, and includes x86_64 and arm64 code. Hopefully things still work.
