No, but if you check the Madcap blog, Nita describes using it in a VM on a Mac.

Hi. Is there any prospect of MadCap producing a version for the Mac, and also having Contributor for Mac as well?

I am aware of the 'workaround' of using a VM on a Mac - https://www.madcapsoftware.com/blog/201 ... ac-oh-yes/ - but, because of the hassle, costs and overheads, it seems a short-sighted solution. I'm going to a Mac environment, and the company want their engineers to contribute comments to the documents, preferably via Google Docs, but maybe I could persuade them to use Contributor (but only if it could be run on Mac). The company has suggested Paligo - but I don't think this is good as Flare because of its lack of an XML view (although Oxygen might give me that) - so I'm resisting, but without any prospects of Flare moving to other plaforms, it could be a losing battle!

Unfortunately this is a peer to peer forum (although MadCap folk do drop in from time to time) so we don't know anything about MadCap plans.

You can contact MadCap to ask them, or you can put in a feature request.
