Random crashes (version 1.4.352)

Post by cytan299 »

Hi guys,
Is anyone else having random crashes in Startools (1.4.352 or earlier)? I am having random crashes that do not correlate with anything that I'm doing in ST. It happens at any time and it is really annoying! I don't think there is an easy way to recover my work besides reading the log file and then executing every step by hand again. I know there is a replay tool in the works, but I use a Mac (Mojave, 10.14.6) and so that is not available to me at this time. I would suggest instead, if possible, that ST have the ability to save its binary state at any time so that ST can recover by reading this binary state.

So, is there anything that I can send the developers to diagnose this random crash problem?

Hmmmm.... That sounds odd.
I'll send you a PM with the 1.5 preview, which should definitely be stable.

Occasional crash in 1.4, seldom 1.3. Usually a large file and some processes or ran out of space on root partition.

xubuntu 18.04 LTS 8mb RAM 4 core i5. No problems so far with 1.5.
