Last night I read some of the feedback about this release.
It really seems fubar, and the more I use it, the more fubar it seems.
Do you people not have test suites you can run things thru to see if they work the same or have been broken?
I spent several hours last night trying to figure out why copy and paste from an Evernote doesn't behave properly when pasted into TextPad.
After downloading a tool to check out what's on the clipboard, it's clear that it's Evernote's fault.
The handling of whitespace (blank lines, spaces, newlines) is totally bolloxed up. I cannot even begin to figure out what's going on. Sometimes the whitespace is removed. Sometimes it's expanded. I'm suspecting it may have something to do with unicode and/or being compatible with other languages. Someone probably saw something that looked inefficient and decided to "optimize" it -- thus breaking a number of things. Or maybe seriously broken regular expressions (which is a shame, since there are so many very excellent and free resources for creating CORRECT regexes.)
(I spent a couple of years as an ace software qa engineer at Apple -- I know SOMETHING about quantifying bugs.)
And now, when I try to combine numbering and use the indent feature, that doesn't work correctly either.
And all the rest of the problems people noted, I have seen as well...
...slow paint of page when bringing it up...
...much delayed responsiveness...
...LOTS of "circles" waiting for, I don't know what.
This is the WORST update Evernote has ever released.
And to think of all the folks I've been raving about Evernote to.
From the outside, with over 20+ years of software development experience, it really looks like your software development & QA process is seriously messed up. (Worse yet, I can imagine some software engineer is crowing about all the bugs they've closed -- meanwhile creating even more bugs in their wake.)
Seriously -- a robust test suite would keep you guys from creating the kinds of bugs that just should NOT be being introduced.
Be careful, or the free OneNote's gonna eat your lunch.
In the meantime, where do I find the past releases so I can revert to the last release.
(yeah, I am NOT a happy camper.)
Users -- be sure to backup your notes... locally. Export them. Export them all.
Again I ask: how do I revert to the previous version. At least I will have some hope.
Off to lick my Evernote-inflicted wounds.
