I was wondering whether YACReader and YACReaderLibrary were going to get updated icons to fit the theme of macOS 11 Big Sur, and was wondering how the app would be handling Apple's eventual transition to ARM processors.

Probably, but as it is Luis who handles that I can't promise it ;)

ARM shouldn't be an issue. We've been doing ARM builds for Linux for years now. Unless Apple throws some wrenches our way we should be good.
My answers are not necessarily official YACReader statements but mostly represent my own opinion in technical matters.

The icons will get updated at some point, but it is not a priority right now.

And yeah, ARM shouldn't be a problem. The current code compiles nicely for ARM. The only problem is that I don't think I will put my hands in an ARM desktop machine from Apple any time soon, so the community is going to have to do some work testing those builds.

Not yet sorry :)

About the dark mode, yeah, there is some work done (there is a branch in the repo), but it needs a lot of work yet.
