Special note for macOS “.pkg” installer users

Starting in this release, we have changed the default installation location to fix a very vexing and flaky bug many users were experiencing. This changes the default location from the user’s $HOME directory to the /opt directory. Users will now be prompted for permission to install at that location. Also, this change may cause adverse effects for those systems that have multiple users. If users are on a multi-user system, it is recommended to use the .sh installer for macOS.
