Howdy,

With the release of M39 to the stable channel, Mac is now a 64-bit only browser, however the default configurations and the buildbots all still build 32-bit. It's now time to change the default target_arch used by developers and to update the buildbots to build x64. I'll be landing changes today to make this transition. This should be a completely transparent switch, though please chime in here if you notice any issues.

After the transition is complete, the 32-bit Mac build will be considered deprecated, and it will no longer be maintained. I'll post again here when the transition is finished.

Status update after today:

As of right now, local developer builds, the main waterfall, tryserver, blink waterfall, perf, and FYI waterfalls have all been converted to x64. A few more bot configurations need to be switched tomorrow, but the switch appears to be sticking.

There was a little bit of turbulence, so thanks to ncbray@, pdr@, phajdan.jr@, petewil@ and others for helping get through it. Things are looking greener now, but though.

I'll signal again when the transition is complete.

All the Mac buildbots have been transitioned to x64. There's a few cleanup tasks to finish, but the transition is effectively complete.
