Description

When clicking on the link in the About dialog box (by clicking on the logo in the upper left corner of the main window), an error dialog appears that says "Operation Not Supported".

I'm assuming that it is because of Mountain Lion's sandbox, although I could be wrong. (OS X 10.8.2)

Screenshot attached.

Fixed in commit a1d3b497ca3366ce6e1491874ef060baa785faeb
The issue isn't in Mac's sandbox, it's just that GTK+ doesn't use OS X native way of querying default applications for filetype/URI schema and instead relies on share/applications database. So the fix is to include small version of it in OS X package (it just defines "open" as a command to handle http links).
Next release will have working homepage hyperlink :)
