Critical Bug Fixes

Revision as of 20:37, 17 July 2007 by Manus (Talk | contribs)


The page highlights the list of bugs that must be fixed prior releasing EiffelStudio version Y (previous release is called X).


This list is maintained by Eiffel Software employees only. Any external users modifying the page will most likely see their changes removed. If you have a show stopper bug please add it to the User Section below. We are aware of all of your submitted bugs but we have to prioritize and fix all those that can be fixed before the end of this release cycle, which is imminent.

What is a "Critical Bug"

A bug is critical if it is reproducible and satisfies one of the following conditions:

  1. Something that used to work in version X and that does not work in Y.
  2. New functionality that is broken in Y.
  3. A crash that was not present in X.
