After updating to FontForge 2015-08-24 I'm unable to open FontForge in Mac OSX 10.10.5. After opening X11, I tried opening FontForge.. it's icon is just jumping for a while and after that no window opens. No sign of any app opened. Earlier I used to see a new untitled font opened in fontforge. Now there is no activity..

won't run here either. Neither the binary nor the self compiled source. Does it have some self test? I can launch it from the command line so I assume it did build alright.

Fairly certain the latest (20160404) release works - reopen if not.
