Hey Noah,

Thanks for raising this, it’s slipped between things.

There was a brief discussion between myself & Jan on IRC, and I didn’t
want to delay a significant patch release. My recollection is that we
don’t let source releases get dragged back unduly because of binaries.

The release announcement[0] does state that OSX is on the way, but there
is no specific info on the website about that.

While Jan’s done a huge pile of work in making the next OSX release
automated[1], I’m not sure whether this must run on Lion (which IIRC is
what the older build steps did) so we are waiting for some more of his
time to document / advise further. I don’t have a clean enough environment
to get this to work reliably enough for a release, will see tomorrow
if I can get a lion vm and try this out, it doesn’t work on either of my
macs here.
