Weekly Q&A - June 11th 2019

Hey there everyone! Here's this week's Q&A thread, where you can ask questions about the experience, what I've been up to, what my plans are for upcoming features, etc. - basically anything that's not tech support.

What I've been working on

I spent the last week working almost exclusively on bugfixing, and plan to spend the rest of this week crushing more bugs for version 4.0.5, which will release sometime this week (Friday at the latest). Depending on how many bugs I manage to squash before Friday, 4.0.5 may be the last patch in the 4.0.x series before I move on to 4.1.0. If there are still bugs I'd like to address after 4.0.5, I may release a 4.0.6 patch to sweep those up before moving on to 4.1.0.

Bugfixing is tricky business, but it can also be a lot of fun. The mysterious nature of some bugs can make it hard to estimate how long a bug will take to fix, which isn't great for project/time management, but there's a real satisfaction that comes from identifying a bug, tracing the source, and successfully implementing a fix. It feels a bit like playing detective, and I try to savor the sweet moments. ;)

Go ahead and leave your comments & questions below, and I'll reply to whatever I can as soon as I can, as per usual.

Love, BB
