We have a recently opened ticket for this [0]. Unless there is
significant interest in supporting arm64, we are very hesistant to add
additional platforms. The burden is too high and we are a small team. We
will accept patches for producing Linux arm64 packages, in the same way
there is active development on adding support for Linux armv7 [1], but I
don't expect we will put Linux arm64 on our roadmap in the near future.
