I'm running rc4 on xp32/64 and everything seems ok so far,
installed without problems, ~50connections on a forwarded node, 8 on others,
limited to 1(of2) and 1-2(of3) cores, which scales up nicely, but hasnt generated any coins yet.
Hopefully i'll get some tonight.  Cool

There are several different types of Bitcoin clients. The most secure are full nodes like Bitcoin Core, but full nodes are more resource-heavy, and they must do a lengthy initial syncing process. As a result, lightweight clients with somewhat less security are commonly used.

Downloaded 0.3 for OSX, have to report it's not working very well, the hard disk goes crazy (so much so you can't really open any other apps, unless you want to wait 5 minutes) and it downloads blocks extremely slowly, took me about 4hrs to download 20k before I gave up. The windows one on similar hardware works 10x faster and I had all 66k done in 15-20mins I think it was.

On intel iMac 10.6.4 i5 4gb ram. Oh and it quite often crashes when you quit, is it just me having these problems?

Have tried wiping the database and reinstalling the app with no change.

It sounds like the slow block downloading is a problem for some people but not others, regardless of the platform.. I will try to look into it more, thanks for the report.

Laszlo's build is going to be our first Mac release so please test it!
I wish I could  Grin

It's an Intel Arch release only, doesn't support PPC yet/will?

Currently the code is heavily little endian so it is not just a recompile to support PPC unfortunately.  I wanted to try working on a big endian patch but I couldn't really find a good enough reason to Smiley
