I've been doing some work on the Mac port very recently. I managed to
get the Aqua GUI working (with OpenGL, which comes with most (or all))
Macs. I had to implement antialiasing using the multisample OpenGL
extension because the Mac doesn't have hardware acceleration for the
accumulation buffer (the antialiasing method we currently use). Anyway,
the port is now almost complete. There are a few areas that need work
like streaming video and implementing a few GUI hooks. Also we'll need
to fix up our Mac package creation code.

That said, this will likely not make it into 0.8.3.

What is our level of support for the Mac?  I couldn't find easily installable
Mac binaries of gnash in any obvious place (when helping the Internet Archive
try their new player under it).

Old email traffic seems to have said that somebody got it to compile,
but it requires X Windows, and doesn't hook in to any Mac web browser.
Is that version building stably in rc2?

And there's a very sketchy "Aqua" port somewhere...?

Just wondering.  The release and the web site should document our
state on each major platform -- and Mac is one these days.
