SeaMonkey trunk (2.1) Mac nightlies now Intel 32bit+64bit (PPC dropped)

As the Mozilla 2.0 platform has dropped support for Mac PPC as a primary platform some time ago, and problems have been coming along with builds on that platform, we have now made SeaMonkey 2.1 follow the other Mozilla-based applications in this.

Nightlies from now on do not support the PPC architecture any more, but instead support 64bit Intel on Mac OS X 10.6 "Snow Leopard" in addition to 32bit Intel on Mac OS X 10.5 "Leopard" and higher.

Updates should automatically take users to the new builds if they are on an Intel Mac, we have stopped issuing updates for PPC some time ago already when we discovered that builds were broken.

You also can get nightlies from the SeaMonkey nightly download page if you want to start testing them.

The SeaMonkey team would be happy about reports of how well those new builds work, esp. regarding updates and running in 64bit mode.
