Although I don't want to continue permanent maintenance of this
branch, quite a few important bugfixes were backported for the Mac OS
X port, so I'd like to do a last stable release for 10.4 fixing the
most important crashes and annoyances. I definitely won't have any
time for this within the next 10 days, but afterwards, I would like to
push this. Fine for you?

I don't care about windows builds for 0.9.10 and in fact, I don't see
any reason for this as little to nothing changed for this platform.
Same for *nix too, I guess.

Best regards,
