VelOCRaptor v Lion

Some of you will no doubt have noticed that VelOCRaptor does not work under Mac OS X 10.7. The GUI is fine, but the code that writes PDF's crashes.

I've spent some frustrating hours on this, and it seems to be a bug in a particular framework that Apple ships with Mac OS, but which now doesn't work on Lion. Unfortunately, despite shipping this framework (RubyCocoa), Apple don't offer support for it, and I can't find any simple work-around.

I'm working on the non-simple work-around, but I'm also very busy with other commitments and a holiday with my family. Please watch this space for news.
