Cubase 9 and mac system COMPATIBILITY

About a year ago, I read that only Cubase 8 could work with El Capitan 10.11.6.

Now the Steinberg Cubase compatibility page (https://www.steinberg.net/en/products/sequel/specs_downloads.html) is saying Cubase 9 can run with 10.11.6.

Is there something Steinberg has done to make Cbase 9 compatibe with 10.11.6?

Is anyone out there who is successfully running Cubase 9 with El Capitan?

I have a 2008 Mac Pro

Please advise. Thanks
