Google Gears 0.5.7.0 a 64 bit

Dato che Google non rilascia la versione a 64 bit di questa utile estensione di Firefox (utilizzata da WordPress, ad esempio, per velocizzare la sezione di amministrazione), ho provveduto a scaricare dal repository subversion il sorgente e modificare le parti necessarie a compilarla a 64 bit con GCC 4.3.

Detto questo, ecco il link alla versione binaria di Google Gears 0.5.7.0 per x86_64:

Appena avrò il tempo, probabilmente non per questa ma per la prossima release, piuttosto che mettere a disposizione la sola versione binaria metterò online anche la patch da applicare ai sorgenti.

Consideratela la mia strenna natalizia per voi e… buon download. 🙂
