The text file (rtf) which is in the scroll view is from the Credits.rtf file.

Could you please explain a bit more in detail which differences you are referring to? Is it that GNUstep currently doesn't support the keys you are using? We already support a lot of synonyms here and it wont be hard to add the current Apple names as well. If only they wouldn't change them so often. Of the two keys you are using we currently are missing "Credits", should the text for this key replace the current GNUstep key "Authors" when displaying the about panel?

my code is:

- (void)orderFrontStandardAboutPanel:(id)sender
  NSDictionary * dict = [NSDictionary dictionaryWithObjectsAndKeys:@"Credits", @"Credits.rtf",
                         @"Version", @"0.1 (2010)", nil];


  [self orderFrontStandardAboutPanelWithOptions: dict];



It seems like that is different...
