On the announcement post for Crystal 1.2: "On a bit of a sour note, we are demoting support for 32-bit x86 architectures, moving it from Tier 1 to Tier 2 (that is, /expected to build/). As a result, we will not be shipping i386 packages this time. The reason is that the specs are failing, likely due to the amount of memory they consume."

A little bit sad to read this. Of course, you could build the compiler, but I read it as a warning against Crystal where memory matters.

@oz or they dont have enough old gear to test properly.
