There haven't been any Mac builds showing up for a few
days now. Ordinarily for a Mac user this would
probably mean there's a new product in the pipe or a
standalone Mac app coming (especially three days
before MacWorld SF) but I assume ther's some other
problem... enlighten me please? Is the Mac build queue
broken or full?

To clarify, there have been no Mac builds of the 6.5b1
nightly since 1/3/06...

Is there a reason why the Mac builds aren't showing up? I'm jonesing for something cutting edge. My little Automator workflow for grabbing the nightly build feels useless.

I have been asking the same question in other threads for the past week but cannot get a response from anyone! Please let me know when you get an answer.

I just downloaded the latest 6.5 nightly for MAC. It is SlimServer Version: 6.5b1 - 5601 - Mac OS X 10.4.3 (8F46) - EN - utf8. Hopefully the updates will be available on a regular basis along with the updates for other operting environments.

I'm confused. The nightly update for 6.5 did NOT include Mac OSX last night. What's the deal? They could at least leave the most recent Mac OSX update available until it is updated. That way some one missed who missed it the day it was originally available still could download it.

THX. I knew it had to be out there and if I commented on it someone would show me the link.

We had a new Mac nightly build on the 10th and now we're back to no joy... is the Mac build queue broken or should we expect only occasional Mac builds moving ahead?

Wo . . . let's keep things civil here -- ok?

I think I fixed it. The mac build server had a clock that was off.
Rebuilding today's build now, tomorrow's should happen automatically.

Excellent! Thanks Dean. I have been having withdrawl symptoms for Ben's 770 skin updates.

Not using Mac myself, I am just curious.

Can the mac people use the SlimServer_<something>.tar.gz files ?

Yes - you can run it via Terminal. There's no Preference Pane control however.
