File size for Mac version suggests it's still broken.

Yes, they are indeed working again, thanks all.

A side note, don't think its problem so this is just feed back:

Latest version for Mac is working in 3.1 but not in 3.0:

Being so similar Blender versions and since most if not all Mac users should favour 3.1 anyway (Metal support) don't think it even worth catering for both but maybe there should a be a notice/note somewhere.

I do have a previous latest release that works fine in 3.0 , but don't even see a reason to use it since 3.1 is working fine.

Ty all.

Blender 3.0 uses a different version of Python to Blender 3.1, so they are no longer compatible.

The mesh data structure is also quite different in 3.1. Unless the LuxCore team decide to start publishing separate builds for Blender 3.0 and Blender 3.1, this is unlikely to change.

On the other hand:

I know resources and manpower are already stretched as it is and I really have no idea of the scope of the work needed but (if it was a simple affair) it could be interesting to have a OpenCL BlendLuxCore Mac version for ARM.

I do know OpenCL is deprecated in current MacOS and no one knows until when it will exists but as it is latest Montrey still supports OpenCL.
No idea if OCL drivers even allow it, but if they can take advantage of Unified Memory it could prove very useful to have VRAM up to 128GB.

Yes it does, but Cycles lacks a lot of Lux features, anticipating that could generate some new interest from Mac users and probably help Lux popularity my point was IF it didn't need a re write (more like just a simple re-compilation) it could prove useful to have a native ARM version.

Even assuming its a simple re-compilation of course the whole thing could be pointless, as OpenCL is on borrowed time under MacOS and no one know when Apple will pull the plug.

Now on, the Linux builds use Python v3.10 too and they should work with Blender v3.10 (to test). A new build is pending.
