New Flamerobin snapshot build for Mac osx

I have now also uploaded a new snapshot build for Mac OS. It's also
built against Boost libraries version 1.54.

The updated boost.m4 file necessitated a bump of the minimum
deployment target to 10.5 (although I don't think that anyone will
even notice these days).

It's still a 32 bit only universal build for PPC and x86. Unless I buy a new Mac this won't change as my 10.5.8 Mac isn't updatable to a more recent OS AFAICS.

If anyone feels like taking over the Mac OS side of FlameRobin and
looking into 64 bit Cocoa builds against wxWidgets 3.0 I'll gladly step aside...

New flamerobin snapshot 0.9.x git hash 5ece15b

new snapshots (git hash 5ece15b) for Windows 32 and 64 bit uploaded to
The 32 bit build does no longer contain a version for Windows 9X
versions, only the Unicode build is included.  The Inno Setup created
installer should not allow the installation on Win 9X but I haven’t
tested this.
All builds use Boost libraries version 1.54, for the necessary changes
to be able to compile it with MSVC++ 7.1 see
Testing and reporting on your findings would be great.

Compiling flamerobin with wxwidgets 3.0

This is guide compiling the flamerobin version from git with wxwidgets 3.0 on ubuntu 13.10

download wxwidgets 3.0

./configure  --enable-debug --enable-unicode --prefix=/opt/wxwidgets
make -j4
make install

clone flamerobin from git

./configure --with-wx-config=/opt/wxwidgets/bin/wx-config --enable-debug --prefix=/opt/flamerobin

then make install

First issue Fixed : I needed to add
-lwx_gtk2u_aui-2.9 -lwx_gtk2u_stc-2.9 to the compile/linking line (i need to change the bkl file like is done for windows with 29 system libs added)
Second issue Fixed:
I investigate this error now when i fetch data from a table in the grid

/opt/wxwidgets/include/wx-2.9/wx/strvararg.h(452): assert "(argtype & (wxFormatStringSpecifier::value)) == argtype" failed in wxArgNormalizer(): format specifier doesn't match argument type

Solved by a small modification (long type format was needed)

Flamerobin added support for aarch64 in fedora 19 and rawhide

We noticed that ARM64 support was not added to the configure script in Fedora Linux so now Flamerobin in Git adds support for the new arhitecture aarch64
it should work on other Linux distros like Debian after we get an icu,wx port package too
