As an experiment, I've uploaded a Mac .dmg disk image with 0.4rc2 binaries to:
  https://github.com/downloads/bitcoin/bitcoin/

I'd like to switch from sourceforge to github for binary release downloads, because sourceforge doesn't support https for downloads.

Help improving the script I used to create the .dmg file would be most appreciated; see this branch for what I done did:
  https://github.com/gavinandresen/bitcoin-git/commits/osx_dmg
For some reason setting the "Drag and drop to install" background image isn't working...

shasum checksum is:
 6621bdb82fd4520f6efcb87f489e47a587d8915f  Bitcoin.dmg


Fixed.  New shasum checksum is:
 c86229b4c973da2207f516962804958424e94e08  Bitcoin.dmg

The yoursway create-dmg script had the same problem.

I changed the approach to using a "template" .dmg file, as described here:
  http://digital-sushi.org/entry/how-to-create-a-disk-image-installer-for-apple-mac-os-x/

The .dmg includes Bitcoin.app, a compiled bitcoind daemon, and the source code .zipped up.

The .dmg works for me.  And I see you fixed 2-finger scrolling with the trackpad in the address list.

I'm going to wait for the official release before I try encrypting my wallet, tho.

Thanks!  Your efforts are appreciated.

Hi all,

what would be the appropriate method to file a bug report?
nothing critical (no functional defect nor a sign of a weakness)

just noticed the behavior of sorting address in the address book is broken and willing to test fixes. just looking to join the mac client dev team.

experience as tester and technical writer, have some spare time
can not fix it myself

Bugs can be reported via the github issues system:
  https://github.com/bitcoin/bitcoin/issues

... although the entire GUI is changing for the next release, so reporting GUI bugs like not being able to sort in the address book will be a waste of time.

OK, will review the bug after the GUI toolkit change, will try to do so with RC builds
