We are going to continue our internal testing of all our software and will be releasing fixes as quickly as we can but we also need your help to stabilize the framework. We are keen for you to start playing with and getting used to the new UI but this is still very much a β. We consider this release, and those that will follow until we are prepared to call v1.0 stable, there to be broken by you. As such we have prepared a GitHub repository for all your bug reports. The best way for us to correct issues is to be able to reproduce them ourselves and delve into the code to see what’s going wrong.
Therefore, we ask for two key things when submitting issues:
- that you tell us which build configuration you are currently using (you can see that in the About section of the HAL menu)
- steps to reproduce the bug, with a minimal set of files to replicate the error on our side if necessary.
The more feedback you give, the more errors you find, the more issues you report, the faster we can get the HAL Robotics Framework to a stable 1.0 release and, more importantly, the more influence you will have over the final product so it does exactly what you want in the way you want.
