Hi all.

Good to know that BD is released as Application Bundle for Mac users.  
I have to check this out.

For the filechooser you could either use AWT which shows a more  
native Mac Look & Feel than the Swing one.
Or you could use this:
(that's what I wanted to change in the source but first I have to  
warm up with it).

Yes, About menu item should be under Application menu.
The whole menu should be at the main menu every Mac application uses.
(Macs have no menu in each window but one menu at the top of the  
desktop which changes with each application or window).

Preferences should be in application menu.
The toolbar could be made more Mac like with setting some properties.

God bless,
