Hi Ariel,

Thanks for the response.  See below.

Thanks for CC'ing him.  If I could find time, I would take a shot a compiling a Solaris version,
but my chances are slim, as I not a developer, but a Mechanical Engineer and putting in 13
hour days recently, including working weekends.  I appreciate L'oiseau de mer contribution
for Solaris, I'm glad somebody took the effort.  At some time in the future I'm sure I can
contribute some how, if at least testing development releases.

This sounds very encouraging.  Official builds for all platforms.

Well, I've waited over a year now for some updated release, I suppose I can wait longer.

Keep up the good work,
