i have started looking into creation and playing IF a few years ago and have kind of followed the development with a lot of interest.
Just now I saw the new release and instantly wanted to try it.
Unfortunately, while it does start in terms of showing the welcome dialog, as soon as I try to open a new or existing project, the application crashes. The release notes say that you need Mac OS 10.6.8 or newer on an intel-based mac. That’s just what I have.
When directly starting the executable in a Terminal, before opening the welcome window, you can see
2014-06-10 00:17:28.741 Inform[1084:903] Could not find image named 'zoom-file'.
Inform 7 build 6L02 has started.
I do not know if this is related in any way.
The beginning of the crash report reads

(If you want I can pastebin the whole thing)
The old version works without any problems. I have also cleared any files in ~/Library/Inform and ~/Library/Application Support/Inform that might have affected something.
Anyone else having this problem? Any possible solution, any config files or similar i might not have deleted?
Thank you for helping me out,
