Reporting bugs and requesting features

This forum is the right place to discuss new bugs or features.

Reporting Bugs

If you have a bug to report, do the following:

  1. First, check the bug tracker to find out if it has already been reported. Be sure to look at closed bug reports when searching.

  2. Second, search the forum for any discussion related to your problem before beginning a new topic. If your problem is already being discussed, write your message as a reply/comment on the existing thread, rather than starting a new one.

  3. If you don't find any posts about your problem, feel free to start a new topic in the forum and/or enter it in the bug tracker.

  4. If the issue you are discussing is listed in the bug tracker, please include the issue's ID number from the tracker in the subject of your post.

Requesting Features

The strategy for requesting features is much the same as for reporting a bug:

  1. First, check the feature tracker to find out if it has already been requested. Be sure to look at closed feature requests when searching.

  2. Second, search the forum for any discussion related to your proposal before beginning a new topic. If your idea is already being discussed, write your message as a reply/comment on the existing thread, rather than starting a new one.

  3. If you don't find any posts about your feature, feel free to start a new topic in the forum and/or enter it in the feature tracker.

  4. If the issue you are discussing is listed in the feature tracker, please include the issue's ID number from the tracker in the subject of your post.
