Developing questions

Post by Basic » Fri Feb 17, 2012 11:08

cool, good to see some bugs having been fixed. Im still rocking 3.3.3 as i dont have a need for the upgrade just yet.

Can i ask also. Will there ever be a release where there are no bugs or is this just the software business? - Im not having a go im just curious :)

the easy answer is "unlikely" - that stands for every manufacturer of software, not just the resolume team.

Yeah i do understand its wont just be resolume. but I wonder why not? I do also understand that fixing a bug can cause another bug. I find the topic interesing. But that would be for another thread!

Still though. hearing interesting things about the 4.1 update :)

I wonder why not?
I once saw a spy movie, where they mentioned that the chance of a secret leaking out, increases exponentially with the amount of people that know about it.

The same can be said for coding. If I was to make a software that does one thing (i.e. display a rectangle), for one OS, for one hardware configuration, to be used by one single person, I'm pretty sure I could get it to work bug free.

The moment any of those parts becomes more complex, the chance for errors increases exponentially. So although we test every new release carefully, and are very cautious about making changes or adding features, there is unfortunately no way to ensure 100% 'bug free-ness' for every feature, on every OS, on every hardware configuration, for all users. We're sure as heck are trying though.

When you think about it, It's actually amazing we get it out the door at all ;-)

This is exactly why I requested the knowledge of the Development teams hardware Specs.

Free Resolume Avenue & Arena 4.0.1 Update

Post by Basic » Mon Feb 20, 2012 22:15

so for example, say you just coded for mac... you have more chance in theory of having less bugs due to hardware?

Just thinking of it I've only ever had a few minor bugs that never affected performance.
