Today we're releasing Stacks 2.0.7
You should see it in the Stacks automatic updater soon. If you don't, you can always download the latest version from our web site. Here's a link, just in case:
This version of Stacks fixes a problem where some images can become missing from the RapidWeaver site file. For the vast majority of people, this problem probably never existed, but for the few that did experience this problem this is a very important fix. Please install this one as soon as you can.
Personal note: This was probably the toughest debugging I've ever done in my 32 years of software development. The bug was intermittent, only happened when quitting, and the symptoms don't show up until relaunching. Furthermore it's isolated to a seemingly random and very small population of users.
And I definitely want to offer a kind thank you to the very patient users who helped me debug this one. They often endured repeated crashes, my sometimes cryptic requests for information, and lots and lots of console logs. I literally could not have done this without you guys since it was so tough to reproduce this bug. You guys are rock stars. If you're ever near Austin, the beer is on me.
And most importantly, I'd like to say sorry to the folks that have had their images disappear. I know apologies can't bring back the data or the time you spent correcting the problem, but it's important for me to say it and for everyone to know that we're working harder than ever to avoid this in the future.
