Sawadee: It would definitely be nice if they did, but also near-mythically unlikely. IIRC, Sib7 was written in pure assembler (the reason they switched platform was wishing to rewrite in C++ to make it easier to maintain, I guess). Would you like to take on the task of working out someone else's highly tweaked assembler code (I would doubt they even have the source if they're just a distributor) and then add features that they decided to switch to C++ to add? Martin Wuerthner did an amazing job with Artworks, but I'm afraid I can't see that being repeated with Sib, particularly when there's one available for Windows (the reason I got the combo Windows/VRPC-Adjust laptop I'm typing this on), and one that is far superior in my humble opinion...
