New Release on the Horizon + Current work

Postby Kanchou » Thu Feb 23, 2017 2:54 pm

Hello Everyone!

We are due having another blog entry, but meanwhile I wanted to let everyone know what we are working on.

So far we've been fixing a lot of minor issues that were reported and some that we found internally from V0.8.6. Our objective for the next release is to clean up Other World Mapper as much as possible of small bugs and annoying glitches, and finishing functionality that was almost there. Generally trying to get rid of the "It's in beta feeling."

We also found and fixed a major bug that I think was causing the crashes some of you have reported when using the program for "extended" time periods. The bug was in the undo/redo engine, which I think it makes sense why our internal testing wasn't catching it when trying to just use the program for extended times adding items, changing them, etc.

Edit: I forgot to mention. A bit more artwork and new presets will also be part of the upcoming release.

Thank you!

Any more update when 7 might come out?

That major bug has been keeping me from working on things for a while. It just makes me so frustrated when the entire program just cascades and crashes.

Keep up the great work!! :D

Hello!

Sorry for the late reply!

The good news is that the testing for this release is 4 to 5 times more comprehensive (since this will be a release candidate). The good and bad news is that we're finding a lot of minor issues and some medium issues that we are fixing (and then having to rerun sections of the test during regression).

So the release date is still "soon." At this point we don't want to make the release until we address the majority of the issues we are finding.

That should also make it so that the testing for the final release will go a lot smoother having already addressed most of the issues.

Thank you for your patience!!

Ah yeah. I get that.

Honestly just happy to hear back from anyone about the program. Was getting lonely out here :(

Keep up the great fight. You'll squash those bugs!
