1. CIAO to *end* support for Mac OS 10.5.x (Leopard) 

Item 1: CIAO to *end* support for Mac OS 10.5.x (Leopard) 
This is a follow up from our recent Chandra announcement and chandra-users 

Given users feedback (only a handful of users still on Mac Leopard) 
and considering our current resources - plus the need to support the 
newest platforms - we have decided that the next CIAO release 
(CIAO 4.4 currently scheduled for December 2011) 
*WILL NOT INCLUDE SUPPORT for Mac OS 10.5.x (Leopard)* 

The full list of platforms currently planned for CIAO4.4 is therefore: 

- Linux 32 bit and 64 bit: 
    supporting most platforms including CentOS, Fedora, Debian, Ubuntu 

- Mac OS 32 bit and 64 bits: 
    10.6 (Snow Leopard), 
    10.7 (Lion)
