Generally works fine on Lion. We're (mekentosj, the makers of this app) are investigating one Lion-specific crash that might affect some users. This should be resolved in Papers 2.0.9, due to be released very soon.

Version 1.9.8 on Mountain Lion 10.8.0 - works OK so far!

I'm using Papers 1.9.8 on Mac OS X 10.8.0 Mountain Lion. I have a library of 700 or so articles. Papers opened without a hitch. I was able to drag and drop a recent paper onto the Papers dock icon and it imported it without a problem. I could also match the article as well. I also did a couple of PubMed searches and they worked fine.

So far, so good; I'll continue testing other features.

2.06 is totally unstable (crashes within seconds) on Preview 2 with both updates.

While my papers takes a minute or two to crash, I agree with the poster above that this software is totally unusable under DP2.

Version 2.0.8 should work fine on Lion, we're working on one particular crash that might be Lion specific and can affect some users. We hope to resolve this in 2.0.9 very soon.

1.9.7 is not working fine. There are frequent crashes (especially on import).

Papers 1.9.7 works fine so fare. It starts under Lion, can import papers without crash.

Data loss with version 2.0.8 after upgrade to Lion. Previously loaded PDF's are safe on hard drive, but papers database, with all citation data, is gone. Prior to Lion upgrade 2.0.8 was working fine. My system is plain vanilla iMac with Snow Leopard to Lion upgrade.

@Pinacol: Did you try to add some notes in papers 1.9.7 ? This doesn't work for me.
Today importing 3 files worked fine….

I am having big troubles with Papers 1.9.7. It freezes when I click on notes (the only solution is to close the program), and is very slow for some imports. Other features work fine. I am wondering whether in Mekentosj they are working in an update for papers 1.x as well, because all the responses I am seeing talk about papers 2.0.9! The response I got by e-mail was generic, "we hope to resolve it in a future update". Based on negative reviews, and on the huge jump in the program price, I am still unconvinced to upgrade to papers 2!

I'm using 2.0.9 and I have to say that it is working better under Lion then under Snow Leopard. It seems a lot more stable and haven't yet had any problems to speak off. Looking forward to both updates of Papers and Lion to increase stability.

@Marmiteman, Has 2.0.9 actually been released? I have been waiting for this to upgrade to Lion but so far I have not found an update… Thanks.
