Is there possibility to add support for Metal for OS X?
I know openGL would be universal (for linux as well), but Apple decided that they will deprecate openGL and only update Metal API.
Please keep game supported for macs, because I LOVE this game. I sometimes have some FPS drops (while UPS stays at 60), but overall game runs pretty much ok for me.

Also new GUI will be released in which version? 0.17.x? When can we expect new experimental builds?
