I love it when a process works. In my presentation to the Expert Elite Group I mentioned that sometimes defects reported during a Beta period don't get fixed because when we fix something, we run the risk of breaking something else. So instead of taking our chances and fixing every defect, we defer the ones whose fixes are more risky to a service pack or a future release. Although technology previews have a lot more latitude in this regard, since they are early in their development [and are free], they are still susceptible to the same issues.
The Autodesk Research team updated Project Chronicle in early May. They improved Project Chronicle's capabilities with:
- Fixes for issues with the Autodesk AutoCAD and AutoCAD LT plug-ins.
- Improved network proxy support.
However as part of doing so, they broke the recording process for some Windows NT users. They didn't inadvertently break it for everyone, just Windows NT users. The Labs community pointed this out, and the Autodesk Research team corrected the problem. I posted the new build the other day. Windows NT users can download it from the Autodesk Labs site.
Thanks to the community for pointing out the error of our ways. Thanks to the team for addressing the issue. I know the Windows NT users are happy to be chronicling again.
Corrective behavior is alive in the lab.
