Clem himself stated that the work from 32 to 64bit was not that difficult, so why not bring it our earlier? I found the patch from 6 to 7 idiotic. First 64 and after that maybe the 6 to 7 path is much more logical, considering the fact that loads of people have 64bit processors nowadays.

As you can see, I call anyone who posts asking "When is xxxx going to be ready?" impatient, including myself!

maybe so, but the team can only release what's been created/tested, so as I mentioned before, it basically needs someone to volunteer to keep the 64bit in sync with the 32bit. If clem tried to do everything at once, we'd still be waiting for gloria now, so let those of us who need the 32bit enjoy the release, 64bit isn't far off.


Sorry I miss interpreted the what you were saying :|

My apologies :oops:

Patience will be rewarded. The 64 bit version was tested and approved for release candidate. You should see the release candidate pretty soon.

Well I've just installed the RC1 and it's great :D I'm currently building MPlayer for support with some of my newer wmv files but other then that it's brilliant! and it seems rather stable as I haven't had any problems yet (although I assume this is because most of the bugs were ironed out in the 32bit release =])

Thank you Clem! :D

I also installed Linux Mint 7 Gloria X64 RC1. There is only one problem for me. With Flash player in Firefox. When I try to waste my time in my brute website and I open my cellule or try to log in, Firefox gets crashed - here is what firefox says to terminal after crash:
def@defi-desktop ~ $ firefox
Segmentation fault
def@defi-desktop ~ $


Edited: P.S It's Adobes bug with Flash Player X64 version for Linux. :)
