[OS X TeX] Flashmode 5.0

Flashmode 4.2 which is universal can still be downloaded, containing  
Leopard and Tiger versions. Version 5.0 and future versions will only  
be compiled for intelMacs. Apart from the compilation v. 4.2 and 5.0  
are more or less identical. However I have the impression that a  
machine specific compilation runs smoother than a hybrid version. This  
impression could of course also be the result of the experience with  
my new Mac Pro which runs much smoother and more stably than my old  
G5, but even so, this would be reason enough to run only Intel  
specific software whenever possible.
