Should I be reporting bugs in 34.11? I know that 40.0x is the current version, but there are a few random crashes (mostly segfaults from the terminal) that I have been getting.

We'd prefer not.  0.40.X broke save compatibility, so it would take a lot of extra work (and in some cases be totally impossible) to determine whether a 0.34.X crash has since been fixed (or rendered obsolete).  New reports should always use the latest version available.

Just wanted to say that I ran into

http://www.bay12games.com/dwarves/mantisbt/view.php?id=7284

in 40.08

Didn't see it in the 40.09 changelog, but it still exists.

I had a Carpenter go into a fey mood while everyone was sealed inside because of a Gobbo siege. Well, right after the siege. Everything was fine for a few seconds, then FPS tanked. It went down to 2 or 3 FPS for a while. I frantically cut through the wall, and FPS rose back up to 58 or so.

I realize you're aware of this, just giving a poke or so. The last few bug squashing updates have been great! Keep up the great work!

Any new discovery, sufficiently weaponize, is indistinguishable from !!FUN!!

This kind of confirmation is more useful when posted on the tracker, since that lets us keep all the information in one place.

Hi, I have a small feature request for the bugtracker.
The only two rss feed I can find are:
http://www.bay12games.com/dwarves/mantisbt/issues_rss.php
which show every single bug in the tracker sorted by the latest change and
http://www.bay12games.com/dwarves/mantisbt/issues_rss.php?filter_id=8474
which add a filter showing only the bugs that are "Acknowledged/confirmed".
I would like if Toady added a filter showing especially all the bugs that are fixed in the next version (aka this page: http://www.bay12games.com/dwarves/mantisbt/changelog_page.php).

I think the rss filter should be every post assigned to "Toady One" and sorted by "Fixed in Version Descending"

Here's a filter: http://www.bay12games.com/dwarves/mantisbt/search.php?project_id=1&handler_id=2&resolution_id=20&sticky_issues=off&sortby=fixed_in_version&dir=DESC&hide_status_id=-2
I don't know how to link to an RSS feed, though - I selected "Make public", but evidently that doesn't work - I can't access http://www.bay12games.com/dwarves/mantisbt/issues_rss.php?filter_id=8594 when logged out.

There was a typo in the siegers' campfire code. When the fires went out, so did the game.

That's the correct link, thanks.
I also confirm that it doesn't work if you aren't logged-in. You have to add the "username" and the "key" fields to the url in order to make it work in the rss reader ( it's also the same for the "Acknowledged/confirmed" ).

If I get a segfault with a core dump, where do I find this dump? Ubuntu 14.

There are several sticky'd bugs which have been closed; they should be un-sticky'd.

Two questions about the tracker:

1) What's the difference between "acknowledged" and "confirmed"?

2) What does it mean when a bug is assigned to someone besides Toady?

Confirmed issues usually have a higher priority than acknowledged issues.

2) What does it mean when a bug is assigned to someone besides Toady?
When a manager changes the status of a report, it is (usually) automatically assigned to that manager. It's possible to unassign it manually, but self-assigning issues helps us track the status of issues we've requested feedback on (e.g. with the "Assigned to Me (Unresolved)" list under "My View").

1: The "new topic" button in this board is non-excisting for me as a new user, using opera web browser - forcing me to post my bug here, plese forgive :)

2: My 1 year old fortress crashes. This crash happends every time 3-4 sec after the last autosave. Used lazy noob pack, and disabling utilities, mods, dfhack etc and changeing graphics does NOT work. I can stay in paused mode forever tho.
I might have to abandon my fortress, but don't want to risk to run into the same problem again with a new one.
I would upload my savefile but I don't know where to find it. In the folder LNP/DF40/data/save there's just one empty folder and one with tons of DATs and txts and graphic images.
While i have decent understanding of PCs, I am a complete noobie to DF so if you wish to help please keep it simple :) Thanks!
