I'm currently running version 10.15 of FFS on macos Catalina 10.15.6, and wanted to take advantage of the new version 11.0.

I've donated and downloaded version 11.0, but the Installer freezes (rotating beachball) on step 1. Introduction (when clicking on Continue).

Have tried several times.

OK, I seem to have resolved this - seems to have been due to over-zealous Gatekeeper protection in macos Catalina.

The solution - as described on a number websites - was to temporarily disable Gatekeeper through a Terminal command so that the option 'Allow apps downloaded from Anywhere' appears. (I also achieved this with another app where Installer was exhibiting the same behaviour.)
