Does this help? It was at the end of the release announcement:

Known issues
- This build (for Mac) is not notarized yet, so if your Mac is running
MacOS Catalina (10.15.x) you will get a warning dialog saying that the app
cannot be opened. In this case, you have to whitelist LiveCode in the
System Settings -> Security and Privacy, and then right-click on LiveCode
and choose "Open" from the contextual menu. Just double-clicking to open it
will not work.

Note that you'll only need to do this once, the very first time you open
LiveCode 9.6 DP-3. For more details and instructions see here:

I must be missing something. I downloaded 9.6.0 (dp3) and my Mac OS won’t let me open it because claims Apple can’t check it for malware. Hmm…. I’m on a Macbook running Catalina, with BitDefender, but turning BitDefender off doesn’t change anything.

Something new?
