In testing widgets, I've found that widget assets are not copied to the compiled app. Steps to reproduce: 1. Make sure you're using a 1.5.0 branch of Alloy 2. From the repo directory, run jake app:run dir=ALOY\-898 This sample app happens to use the loading widget, which contains a set of graphic assets. 3. When the app opens, click Open Window. You'll see messages in the console that the image assets cannot be found. 4. Copy the file path from one of those log messages. Open Finder and choose Go, Go to Folder. Paste in that path -- before you click Open, change the two instances of %20 to spaces in the path. 5. Right-click Harness.app and choose Show package contents. There should be an images/com.appcelerator.loading folder containing simlinks to a set of PNG assets. It's not there. 6. Change to Alloy 1.4.1 and repeat the preceding steps. The images will be there.
