transition to intel *not* going smoothly - but new plug-in coming

we have missed the first milestone (creating a working plug-in shell in XCode) by a wide margin. this is a serious set-back, as it indicates just how difficult the transition is going to be. it also appears that we have to switch from Apple's 'Carbon' technology to the Objective-C based 'Cocoa', which adds another level of complexity and effort to the process.

as a result, we have stopped intelification for a while to be able to push the next (much requested) plug-in out of the door. it uses some newly developed cool technology that we might introduce into other plug-ins: arbitrarily-shaped areas of effect. We expect to finish the plug-in by monday.
