RAD 9.7x on macOS Big Sur

I have upgraded to macOS Big Sur. And I have Rational Application Developer (RAD) 8.5.5. It does not work on Big Sur. I know it's old version. I can upgrade to RAD 9.7x in couple of months. But RAD 9.7x has not been tested on Big Sur yet. As per RAD specifications guide, it works on High Sierra. But, if I upgrade my RAD to 9.7x on Big Sur, will it work? Can you please perform test to see if RAD 9.7x works on Big Sur. If yes, then good. If it doesn't work, how can I use RAD on Big Sur. I am a developer and my primary job is to work on RAD.

    Big Sur is currently not supported, but we'll add it as a proposed supported operating system for our next 9.7.x fixpack.
