For Lion users (OS X 10.7): fixed a bug happening on 10.7.5 and causing a crash during the export of applications. Due to this bug, Crunch doesn't use anymore the OS X APIs on 10.7.5+ to convert the png images. Xcode needs to be installed (Crunch uses a tool provided with Xcode to convert correctly the iOS png images). Make sure that Xcode is installed and check the “PNG Crush Tool” Settings in the Application Preferences by choosing Crunch > Preferences. You can download Xcode 4 from the Mac App Store for free.

Xcode is no more needed for OS X 10.7.5 and higher: Crunch uses the OS X APIs to uncrush the .png images.
