Important info for OSX users

32 bit (x86) OSX versions of Nebula Setups 2.1 & NebulaMan 2 (in development) will NOT be available, because there is too much tricky stuff to be done to support Carbon based 32 bit plugins inside Cocoa based QT framework, which is a foundation for my programs. As x86 architecture will soon be completely obsolete on OSX, further development of 32 bit tools is now officially abandoned. Since Nebula Setups already supports both 32 and 64 bit setups, this is not an issue.
