As of three weeks ago, the Macintosh build was compiling. An executable
was created. Double clicking it was instant crashed, somewhere in the
function that creates preferences. The Macintosh uses that silly ":"
instead of "/" or "\". (just kidding). I don't know if anyone has started
to write an event loop, or how big of a job that is. Perhaps Mr. Kovner or
one of the other folks working on it could provide a more technical
description of what they hope to accomplish next.
