find and open works after the posted workaround:

Alfred does not find all applications, sometimes it took a while. Spotlight is finding everything correctly, so I guess this is an Alfred issue.

Lion Preview 3 fixes the metadata issues which prevented Alfred from working in certain scenarios… it should now work fine once 10.7P3 has reindexed.

0.9.1 is currently in pre-release and works wonderfully on Lion DP4 update 1 :)

The pre-release works great except for the clipboard history. Doesn't save anything to the clipboard history at all.

Currently, all key features work perfectly with Lion, and a few minor issues have been reported to Apple as bugs within Lion.

Enjoy Lion :)
