Okay, macOS builds are available now as well. \o/

> Known major issues with the nightlies so far:
> 1) A couple of months ago we needed to get out an emergency Tor Browser
> release to fix a possibly proxy bypass bug[1], affecting above all macOS
> users and potentially some Linux setups as well. We currently don't have
> a patch for that one as the underlying code changed too much between
> ESR52 and ESR60. However, Mozilla is working on that for us and we'll
> port the final fix back as soon as possible.
> 2) Loacalized bundles are not working correctly due to missing locale
> strings for the new circuit display. This should be fixed starting with
> the next nightlies as I pushed the respective changes a couple of hours
> ago to our Torbutton repository.
> 3) The nightlies have JavaScript blocked by default (some of you might
> even call this a feature).
> 4) Loading default bridges/moat is not working.

1), 3) and 4) are still unfixed and to keep in mind while testing macOS
nightlies, too.
