What are the *critical* bugs to fix for the public version?
 
I've seen some threads talking about how CMUD isn't "ready for primetime". I know the latest 2.22 beta version is much better than the current 2.18 public version in many ways. So I obviously want to make the 2.23 public version as good as possible.

So please post links in this thread to any other bug report threads that you personally think are critical to fix for the 2.23 public version. That will really help me prioritize my work over the next week or so.

Keep in mind that I still won't be able to do much about most mapper-related issues. Unless it's something really easy, I doubt I have the time to dig very deep into the current mapper code, which will be replaced later this year anyway.

Try not to just repeat every bug report that you have posted. I really want this to be a *critical* bug list...bugs that are stopping you or your friends from using CMUD 2.22 right now.

Please do NOT POST NEW BUG REPORTS here! Create a separate topic for new bug reports. In this thread, simply give a short subject for the bug and a link to the thread that already discusses it.

Thanks for the help!

My short list, re-posted here for others to reference now:

"Updating buttons through events causes crash"
http://forums.zuggsoft.com/forums/viewtopic.php?t=30349

"Incorrect context (or symbol lookup) in event handlers"
(this is possibly what's causing the crashes in the buttons/events topic)
http://forums.zuggsoft.com/forums/viewtopic.php?t=29910
(may or may not be related, but refers specifically to difference between #ONINPUT and #ALIAS when raising an event)
http://forums.zuggsoft.com/forums/viewtopic.php?t=30233

"Issues with class folder scope"
(after further inspection, I believe it may have been related to deleting classes that were disabled, thus an enabled folder with a similar name was deleted in a different module despite the fact that I gave the full (absolute) path to the class folder, but I couldn't reproduce it with a small test script, unfortunately)
http://forums.zuggsoft.com/forums/viewtopic.php?t=30289

"Variables reverting back to previous values"
(happens only to data record variables, it seems; thread says it was fixed in waiting for the background save routine to finish, but it still happens to me regularly in 2.22 and time doesn't seem to be the issue)
http://forums.zuggsoft.com/forums/viewtopic.php?t=30133

No thread for this last issue, but my mapper crashes CMUD (with no exception dialog, just a complete freeze) when I follow any custom exit (i.e., I hit the macro for "north" and the mapper instead sends "enter archway," as it should). It matters not whether the mapper is docked or undocked. Since no one else has mentioned this to my knowledge, I'm considering that it just might be my map database (though it still works fine in zMUD).

My votes would be for ATCP bleedthrough specifically with the character, because it regularly throws a program crash window while I'm trying to bash.

And for the subregex fix (subregex returning null string when not matching) which Vij should hopefully have for you, because it caused several scripts to stop functioning as intended and the work arounds are horrible hacks.

My #1 top annoyance is losing my db variable settings unless I open the settings editor and save them through the settings editor. So unbelievably annoying:

And this one, it's very annoying as well.

Big annoyance, but not critical - Freezing caused by reformatting:

I will heartily second (third?) the comments about the DB variable saving - silent loss of data is always a Bad Thing. This would be priority #1 IMHO.

Priority #2 would be the %subregex fix (also mentioned above), which ought to be pretty quick.

And, given that you don't want to hear about mapper problems, the only other thing that irks me on a regular basis is the magical reappearing command-lines on child windows (http://forums.zuggsoft.com/forums/viewtopic.php?t=30257 among others). But I can live with that for a long while.

cuprohastes: As I mentioned, you must give me a LINK to the forum thread that discusses the bug that you are reporting. I have never been able to reproduce any problem with spellchecking, and I have no idea what you are talking about with your other two bugs. My guess is that you are having problems specific to your system or setup and you need to have other forum threads to discuss these specific issues. But none of those issues are currently on my bug list at all.

Don't yell, but I would really like to see the problem with MXP and Ansi being interpreted correctly so I can convert my logs to HTML.

The fact that CMUD is adding the ESC[0S sequences to the log file is a bug.


I use all MXP and would like to convert logs to HTML files. I'll create my own program if I have to, but I can't do it the way the codes are in the logs now.
