How about actually fixing all the bugs instead of just recording them or blaming them on other apps?

It's a good idea if I could program.

How about fixing the major bugs like focus stealing and such before fixing the little things or adding more things? That right there will get the majority of the people off your backs. As it sits right now, I can't even recommend Avant to anyone. I've passed over several Avant recommendation opportunities since the 100's builds, so it's really hurting Avant's reputation....

I know what you said are correct, but I can do nothing about these. Many bugs cannot be fixed.

Xiaobing, what your are saying ("Many bugs cannot be fixed") is astounding.

Am I to understand that Avant will continue to be flawed and that there is no hope?

Amazing.

If this is true then avant died with 2012 b197. And what for? Sacrificing stability and functionality just for changing interface? Maybe Anderson should consider about rolling back to 2012 and rewriting everything again. Otherwise we would probably all learn to program ourselves sooner then we see those bugs fixed.

There is no such thing as not being able to fix bugs. You either change the faulty programming or you rewrite the code. Saying that the bugs can't be fixed says that Avant will ever be a bug-ridden waste of time. If that's the case, then why bother with it anymore if this is as good as it gets? Why string along everyone with promises of bug fixes and/or improvements?
