Any software of non-trivial size and complexity will contains mistakes (‘bugs’). While we try very hard to make PerfectTablePlan a high quality application, it is inevitable that some bugs will not be found and fixed during testing. Some of the worst bugs are those that cause the software to exit without warning (‘crash’), possibly losing data.
To help maintain quality, PerfectTablePlan has built-in crash reporting. If the software crashes it will (with the user’s permission) attempt to email us a crash log. The crash log can be a big help in identifying the cause of the bug. Since we released version 2.1.4 at the end of May we have had the following statistics:
- Downloads (Windows and MacOSX): several thousand
Obviously we would prefer 0 crash reports, but we feel this a long way ahead of the reliability of much of the software that we use day-to-day, some of it a lot more expensive than PerfectTablePlan.
If you do manage to crash PerfectTablePlan, please send us a crash report.
