Yes. Recent contributions of patches and testing on different systems 
has greatly improved the reliability of 64 bit builds. Other work has 
fixed some bugs and added some new features, robust mutexes being the 
main one.

All of this work has been committed to the current CVS head revision if 
anyone would like to try it. See the NEWS file for details of what's new 
and changed.

There are some other changes in the pipeline but I will probably hold 
them over to a 2.9.x release. In that case you may find a new packaged 
release (source and pre-built) on the site by the end of the weekend, 
but the pre-built package will still include only the 32 bit dll. The 64 
bit version still needs to be built from source.
