I've been using the dev preview on my mac for a while, with no problems (in fact, I recently closed a case about Mac crashes).

I decided to do the new update last night (being sure to save what I wanted manually & uploading for myself).

The update killed my client completely. The popup told me that "The game has previously not started up correctly. If this problem persists, please install the latest version."

After clicking okay, this window popped up: Foldit could not load library: dlopen(cmp-binary-b23ba6......./game_library.dylib, 2): Symbol not found: _ZNSi10_M_extractlmEERSiR_
Referenced from: /Users/auntdeen/...../cmp-binary-b23ba6df80

I tried to open Foldit again, same results. Installed a fresh copy - changed to beta - same results.

Another fresh copy without changing to beta is working - but of course, since I saved my uploads in beta, I can't access them...

Here is the log.txt from the original installation:

Not sure exactly what's causing this yet, but we're working on it.

Thank you for the prompt attention!

I would hate to take back all the nice things I recently said about macs & foldit...

This should be fixed. If it isn't, let us know.
