Hello guys,

starting today, we'll provide nightly builds for the x86_64 platform  
running Mac OS X. These builds require Mac OS X 10.5 or later and a  
Core2 CPU or better. They are based upon the 1.0-bugfix branch right  
now. There are no builds of the master branch yet.

There are a few limitations:
- no support for goom or SDL*
- text rendering through freetype instead of ATSU/quartztext. The  
settings in the simple prefs fall back to freetype automagically.
- no theora support (will be fixed until 1.0.2)

The frequent crashes on Leopard when unloading modules will  
(hopefully) fixed tonight.

Please test the builds and report back any issue you may encounter,  
which is _not_ mentioned above.

Best regards,
