You can read about the new functionality and check your eligibility. The full installer can be found on this page.

macOS 10.16 Big Sur

MacVector 17 and later are not only fully supported and compatible with Apple's latest OS release, macOS Big Sur, but also support Dark Mode and use the latest Apple signing and notarization procedures so you can be sure you are using an authentic copy. Earlier versions of MacVector can't do this. So why not upgrade?
