Hi David,

The AG 3.1 alpha release annoucement for Intel Leopard is appended below.

With Vista and installers that don't support the new Vista security model, 
you need to right click the installer program and choose 'Run as 
Administrator' (even if your account has administrator privalages).

AG 3.1 should work on Vista, but there are issues like the latency with RAT 
being twice that of WinXP.

Hi Justin:

We're doing some early testing of the AG on Leopard.  You can get a copy of 
the installer for this alpha release here:


Note that this is for Intel Macs only.

Please do report any problems that you find so we can fix them and move
toward a final Leopard release.
