Just when I think its safe to push out a new version I find that the Mac code has been severely compromised somehow and minor features like saving, printing, and displaying no longer work. Gaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaarglefraster. To make matters worse it resulted in a customer needing a refund (annoying a day’s worth of prospects is bad enough — annoying people who pay money for software they haven’t even downloaded yet, thats like kicking yourself firmly in the teeth).
