I have posted XeTeX version 0.81, in both i-Package and Apple Installer 
formats. This release does not include any new features, but the 
OpenType support has been radically restructured (let me know if 
anything has broken that used to work!) such that it should be a little 
more efficient; this release may be able to run on Jaguar again, as it 
no longer links with the libicucore.dylib library from Panther.

A couple of minor enhancements: the "color" option now works for 
OpenType as well as AAT fonts, for those who would like to define 
colored fonts using \font as an alternative to using 
\special{x:textcolor}. And there are versions of some non-English 
hyphenation files such as Russian and Croatian that couldn't be loaded 

As always, feedback (positive or negative) is invited!
