I've had a few conversations with Aaron about the 1.0 port and he is 
making progress.  It seems that the C++ compiler he uses has a few nasty 
memory management bugs in its C++ library.  The 1.0 code uses a few 
more C++ features than the 0.7 code did and as a result these bugs 

The last email I got from him indicated that he had found a way to hack
around these compiler bugs and that he was making progress on the port. 
If he doesn't get overwhelmed at work writing games then we should see 
MacStella 1.0 before long.
