Since Google doesn’t seem interested in releasing a 64 bit version of this useful Firefox extension (used in WordPress, for example, to speed up the administrative section), I checked out the sources from its subversion repository and modified the code as to be able to build it on a 64 bit architecture with GCC 4.3.

This said, here is the link to the binary version of Google Gears 0.5.7.0 for x86_64:
As soon as I’ll have the time to do it, probably not for this but for the next release, instead of publishing just the binary version I’ll put online even the patch to apply to Google Gears sources .
Take it as my Christmas gift to you and… have a good download. 🙂
