I addressed the topic way back in April or March (as I remember) but
apparently couldn't get MachTen and (at that time Apple Cambridge) to
get in touch with each other. I ended up supplying email and other
addresses to both parts because Tenon as well as AC said they would be
happy to give a copy of their product to the other part, but nothing
seems to have happened...
I then suspected that I would probably be the only one running into this
problem, but since we're at least two now... :)
