When should we expect EndNote X10 for Mac BETA TESTING with 64-bit support?
macOS 10.15 will be available by September 2019 and wil require 64-bit applications, which already run on current macOS version.

Hello, @EndiX ,
We are planning a release for later this year to address 64-bit compatibility; we are developing it now. I can't say yet if it'll be a beta first, or just a general EndNote X9 for macOS update. I also can't yet give an exact release date, but it should be before Apple's own release, unless Apple changes their usual timing.
As more information becomes available, we will be sharing here and on our EndNote News Twitter feed.
I hope this helps!

Thanks for the heads up! Looking forward to that.
Note to admins: It is possible to reply messages before login, yet they are lost. I posted the reply above yesterday (without noticing that I was not logged), yet did not show later on. So, I am reposting it again. Besides, clicking "login" on top shows "Safari can't find the server". It would be great if those issues were fixed. Thanks.

macOS BETA 1 version 10.15 (19A471t) Catalina was released at Apple WWDC on 3rd June 2019 and it does NOT support 32-bit applications. It ONLY supports 64-bit applications. Looking forward to a brand new EndNote X10 supporting 64-bit. Thanks!

One can only hope. In the meantime, I am not going to start any project with EndNote as the documentation database (currently using Bookends). I am not confident EndNote will be ready by the time Catalina releases. If an EndNote 64-bit does release, I worry it will be a rush job and very buggy. Sad, because I actually prefer the EndNote UI.
Be careful-I mentioned the same software you did beccause I switched to it for similar frustrations and was contacted by clarivarate and told I would be banned from the forum if I mentioned any alternative software. Odd, given that there is no such prohibition on Apple forums from mentioning Windows etc, but so be it.
EndNote is the best bibliographic sofware, hands down. But competition is good, both for users and companies, because it enhances innovation.
