Cannot build a standalone application

If RunRev chooses not to hire extra people to make Apple's preview period sufficient, so be it. It just means that I continue to be very cautious when considering to buy an upgrade or not. Any reasons *you* may come up with to explain why RunRev never seems to be ready when a new version of OSX or XCode is released, is irrelevant to me.

I didn't mean to contact support. I meant to express my worries publicly and no more than that.

Best regards,
