no, we do not have an official build for 64bit windows. I don't know of any developer that even runs the OS. So we have no plans to release one.

from the reviews I have read, full 64 bit windows is acualy slower for games and many apps, since they don't use/need the full 64bit instructions and memory. They just sling around extra wasted data.
