Hi Bill,

  We tried to make a native Mac OS X version of Chimera two years ago
but encountered many problems in the Tk windowing toolkit that Chimera
uses.  Chimera worked but these problems made it difficult to use (for
example, windows could not be resized at times, places where 2 lines
of text were to be shown, only showed the first line).  I submitted
about a dozen bug reports to the Tk developers.  It appears that about
half of those bugs have been fixed and it is probably time for us to
try another native Mac build of Chimera.  The coming two months we
will be busy with an advisory meeting and a Chimera workshop.  So we
are not likely to work on a native Mac OS X Chimera for a few months.
