The herein download DMG identifies itself as Bwana v2.8.1, and the application, when open, identifies itself as Bwana 2.8.1. Nevertheless, the Finder's GetInfo identifies it as v2.8

The 64 bit update is much appreciated. Thanks!

Question: Every time I run a man search in v 2.7 or 2.8 I get a "Do you want to allow this page to open "Bwana.app"?" pop-up. Is it necessary?

Hope the developer can add applescript support, so that I can write a command line script to open manpage in the terminal like "bwana something". Anyway, Bwana is the one of my indispensible apps to easily convert manpage to webpage. Thanks to the author.
