Thanks, Avi.  I obviously didn't test the .dmg distribution beyond "hey, 
the files are all there!".  It looks
like it's unhappy if it can't get write access to the changes file. I 
should bundle this as a package instead
of a dmg to make it cleaner.

You're right about the tools demo. I should add a checkbox there to 
set/unset UseWxTools, so that
you can see more than just the browser. I didn't make any changes to the 
tools for this release; for the
next release, I plan to rework the tools to fit into the ToolBuilder
