Bugs

Bug fixing is a high priority for the PAMGuard team. Below are just some of the bugs we are currently working to fix, or bugs which have recently been fixed. Further details of all currently known bugs can be found on the sourceforge website.

Open = No work started, but we welcome further input (or offers to fund, or even fix this bug yourself).
Pending = Work has started, although the feature is not yet ready for release.
Complete = The feature is complete and has been released in the latest version.

Of course we can only fix bugs if we know about them. If you are aware of a bug which is not listed below, please see here for what to do next. Please get in touch if you want to discuss the timeline for the fixing of a particular bug.

Most bug fixes will be included in the next PAMGuard release. We will however endeavour to make important bug fixes available to users as quickly as possible.
