I know this has been discussed quite a bit in the past, but there is no recent information. I see daum can potentially compile 64bit, but what is the status of vanilla dosbox with 64 bit? What are the roadblocks stopping this from happening? Is there some inherent incompatibility? Here in 2015 everything is coming out 64 bit these days. Even if there is no real benefit outside of increased ram usage, there will come a time when 32 bit is no longer viable on some OS or another (I'm betting Apple will be the first). Should we not prepare? Come to think of it, I don't understand how this hasn't been a huge issue with 64bit linux for years already. Doesn't it require a whole slew of 32 bit dependencies that people might otherwise not want on their system?
