Mac 64-bit - Feedback Wanted!

Hey everyone,

We've recently updated the 64-bit Mac client, and we're looking for some feedback!

In particular, we are interested in whether the issues with the previous versions of the 64-bit client are still happening, or whether our new update has managed to fix the issues.

If you are interested in helping out, you can download the 64-bit installer here: http://fold.it/dist/external/Foldit-macos_x64.dmg
