Hello Martin,

We are very fortunate with the owners of Omnis.  They have never been considered Big Brother, quite the opposite.  The company supports the growth of the development community in as many ways they can. They run free webinars, etc.

Lastly, and most importantly, the company comes, in large senior numbers, to the annual Omnis Developers conference in Europe called EUROMNIS 2023 and earlier!  At these fantastic events, they listen, they talk, we all learn.  Some of the frank talking is excellent, and Big Brother is never the image that is conveyed.

I think many Omnis Staff read this list, as it is a great way of getting invaluable feedback on their product.  I’m not sure they sit and pounce on every item, I would hope they are slaving away hard on writing even better versions of Omnis for us.  But read the List; yes for sure.  And they listen, and when points arise, they act positively.

We are an odd bunch for sure, just look at the responses to the emails posted for help; so love you all.  Hopefully see some of you at EurOmnis 2023.

Hi All,
I have just noticed that Carlton Park House has already fixed a bug I reported yesterday.That was fast!
Is this a coincidence or they are listed in this forum and often sniff over user comments?
I was made to believe that this forum is a private club where O$ users can freely discuss the Omnis tool without the fear of the big brother watching.

Hey Martin,

Is your code bug free... if so, lucky you.

Imagine having 100's or 1000's of users using you software in as many
different ways, they for sure will find any little problems that exist
in your code.

Omnis have this user base providing them with all this feedback, lucky
for us, they pay attention, and attempt to resolve every single one of them.

For me, Omnis Studio just gets better, with less bugs, but then they add
functionality, or the operating system changes, or some security measure
is increased, any of these may add some new bugs...

I know Omnis is going to try and correct any issues that comes their
way, I can just concentrate on what I am trying to do, and not worry to
much about what they have to overcome?

This is to all Studio Octogerians.
I have gone through the Omnis Faults list.
I notice that there are so many bugs with Omnis.
Nearly everyday a fault is reported.
Is this normal?
How do the faults reporting frequency compare with other programming languages, say, Python or JS or C++?
I'm just curious. Not that I want to jump ship. I'm now deep...deep into Studio to think straight!
Thanks to all O$ geeks.
