By way of follow-up. I went on to download the nightly build. It seems to produce the same startup errors, so I'm unclear that ilastik has been removed. Further, running the built in example analysis seems to succeed, but produces a number of cryptic exceptions on the console along the way. I'm guessing you are aware of these, but it is disconcerting to end-users.
Should I have found a known-issues page somewhere that I missed?
By the way, in trying to use 'help about' to accurately report the nightly build version, I got this:
