I've gone through all the bug reports in the tracker on SF to update
priorities. There were eight bugs that looked like critical bugs:
964635 CRASH (Win32) on insert special character in text w/ALT+Num
953771 Click on zoom spin control crashes inkscape
955020 assert when quitting with dialog and duplicated window
950610 SEGV with gradients
937347 symbol fonts not supported?
934209 Marker-related assertion failure.
852976 win32: mouse freeze when dragging outside canvas
925033 win32: non-ascii filenames still don't work
For this release since it is development-focused I don't think we need
to close all the critical bugs, but it'd be nice to close a few.
Bug 852976 is reported a LOT, there's probably 3-4 other bug reports
that describe basically the same problem, that I left at lower priority.
We've looked at it before and it seems to be a Gtk-on-Windows issue so
there might not be much we can do about it. It would be nice if someone
could figure out if there's a work-around of some sort for Windows that
would stop the crashing, even if it required disabling a feature on
Windows (e.g. autoscrolling).
Since the Pango patch was applied today, it would be wise for everyone
to get a new development copy at this time and test the heck out of it,
and report all recreatable crash bugs you can find, so we can address
them prior to the upcoming release.
