thanks for the os x binary, your time and work on it. qmapshack is really great and a bigtime follow up of qlandkarte.
my version, v1.3.1, which i downloaded just ahead takes really long at start up. i installed the freizeit karte (http://freizeitkarte-osm.de) as one img file but even before installing the map qmapshack took really long at boot up. attached you will find a screenshot of the error message. maybe you have a clue about it? i found nothing on the net or any way to fix it.
