Concerns for 3.0 builds
I generally download and test a 3.0 build every 2 weeks, but I decided to wait a little bit longer this time around considering the amount of bugs that I had experienced previously. My thinking was that if I wait longer, then it will be more stable next time with less bugs and crashes.
I have just come back from experiencing the latest build for 3.0 (which was f264716) and I can easily say that I had just experienced the absolute most difficulty that I've ever had with any build so far. I couldn't even perform basic tasks without the program crashing every 5 minutes. I think it's best if you just see for yourself by downloading the build and trying to compose a new score as you normally would. You'll come to notice that some of the most essential tasks cause crashes, such as placing brackets, editing ties, and even trying to add text to the Title frame. There's many, many more, but I simply can't list the amount of problems/crashes or causes due to the abundance and simplicity of the tasks.
This is, of course, very concerning for the future builds. I'm not a programmer myself, but I just can not understand how so many of these new crashes and problems suddenly appear over time rather than disappear. I think I'm gonna wait a little bit longer until I check out another build, you can find most of these problems by just testing the builds for about 10 minutes or so. Assuming that people test these builds all the time, I feel like any information regarding any particular crash can be gathered easily (such as how to cause it). I hope that these problems will all eventually be resolved.
