Tomasz, two silly questions, out of curiosity, if you don't mind:

1). Why Mach-O? Why bother? (Please nobody take this the wrong way.) I mean, I get it, Mac OS X is famous and beloved, but it just sounds like a hassle. I'm almost (barely) surprised Apple hasn't switched to ELF as they seem to be VERY quick to adopt or drop various things. Certainly people like GNU heavily focus on ELF these days, so it would seem to be easier if they jumped on the bandwagon, though I can somewhat sympathize with each point of view. (Also, if ObjConv works converting to/from Mach-O, and note that I've not tried and maybe it is buggy or unusable, the point is less urgent.)

2). Do you have any test suite that you test upcoming releases of FASM against? Or should the community help make one? I mean, I'm not really volunteering, just saying it would be a good idea to have a few big projects (Fresh, PROE, Menuet, whatever) so as to make sure major features (e.g. macros) don't break. I know assembling itself is a big deal, but obviously that's not enough for all features as you've (last I checked) explicitly avoided some higher-level stuff in your sources.
