Bug Reports

We are proud of the quality built into and maintained in our product. With over 30 thousand users and hundreds of new users each month --- in the past 2 years, only 17 bugs were reported by our users.

The list of bug reports below also shows bugs we have found during internal testing by Guiffy or one of our licensed partners. In 2014 and 2015, 10 of the bugs found and fixed (37%) were found and fixed during internal testing.

We are equally proud of our support and response. When a bug is reported it becomes our top priority to fix it ASAP. In the list of reported bugs below you will notice all of them are fixed. Sometimes, for a brief period, a bug will be tracked with the Status of "OPEN". 99% of the time we fix bug reports within 2 days and when we post the new bug report to the list, the fix is already available.

The Status will indicate the BugFix build in cases when the fix is available - but not in the released/download build.
