At the moment I don't feel the release candidates are getting much  
to the user community, especially the MacOS X version which only appears
amongst the nightlies.

It would be nice to change this. For the MacOS X version at least, if  
is somewhere to put the file, how would you feel if I announced this in
the forum? I would add the necessary disclaimers, but anything that can
increase testing prior to the release would be useful, IMHO.

If you see another way of increasing exposure, or have a different take,
then I am welcome to suggestions.
