It is nice to see this post.  However, these posts usually include the numberic codes for the buts that are fixed - but there is no way for a customer to know that those numbers mean.  It would be nice to know what the bug catalog contains - both fixed and reported but not fixed.

I can see why you might not want to have the unfixed items posted (even if I would benefit your cusomers) but even knowing what they numbers of fixed items would be very helpful.

Those case numbers are bug reports from customers. Each customer was given the case number for their report. Further, support agents will contact them, starting tomorrow, to ensure that the fix has resolved their issue.

We have been assigning case numbers all along but haven't been dilligent in providing customers with this information. We've been working to update our bug reporting database recently and are making a real effort to change how we handle reports.

As we get farther along in the databse upgrade process, I'll find out what is possible for providing further information.

Paradoxically, the most effective catalyst for a quality improvement  to a product that is not judged as able to stand up to transparency is ...

(drum roll)


One of Worden's major competitors has recently seen the light on this one, putting up a public-facing read/write bug/issue database.

In contrast, the Worden team is so hunkered down that the community is wondering if the lead developer/architect has quit!

Mentioning the numbers of the bugs corrected by a build is a (baby) step in the right direction.

I haven't quit. I have been busy working.  We're getting ready for the next dev cycle here.
