Max 5 Bug Reporting

    Apr 23 2008 | 8:02 pm
    First off, I would like to thank everyone for their enthusiasm and interest in giving Max 5 a test drive. This release comes at the end of a very intense and productive beta-testing phase, and a great deal of work has gone into making it as flawless as possible. However, it is inevitable that there will be a couple of little issues that have slipped by even our most observant testers. Over the next several weeks, the Cycling '74 team will be working hard to process and resolve any bugs that you all spot along the way. In order for us to best serve this goal, we would like to ask that all bug reports include as much useful information as possible. Please see the bug reporting guidelines below for a general outline of what we expect in a complete bug report.
    As always, installation issues and authorization problems can be sent directly to support at cycling74 dot com.
    Thanks for your time and patience.
    Andrew Benson -- Cycling '74 Support
