Sure. You guys are human. Thangs will get broken. You'll fix them. I
understand that.

I'm more concerned about session file compatibility over the
transition from 1.0 to 2.0. Taking this other thread about ?'s in file
names as an example, if you folks go foward and make some sort of
change that the user base doesn't pick up when you make it and then
session files are somehow made non-compatible in the process then it's
a problem for people like me. Do I stay with 1.0 and keep my old
sessions OK? Do I move forward and not use them? Does 2.0 provide some
sort of conversion to bring session files up to date?

I'm thinking that none of the developers are using VFAT or maybe this
? question would have been seen by now. I haven't updated Ardour and
done any work in about a month. Did this problem show up that
recently? Will more problems somehow show up in the 2.0 conversion?

Those are my thoughts I suppose. Nothing more.
