We had to invest a lot of time to support the Mac with Apple Silicon and we also tweaked the user interface, solved many problems. It's why the new version cannot be free for everyone.
We are offering an introductory pricing until the end of June. We also introduced a cheaper, simplified version for smaller projects.

How to solve display issues?
First, make sure that your website is located inside the Documents folder of your Mac. Because of sandboxing policy, Apple do not authorize developers to access documents on other locations. Another solution is to enable Apache web server on your Mac and use the http://localhost URL address.
