Repost from Pebble Instant Beta Community

I use bitbucket for managing the development of Pebble Instant.  I really like the features.  My main contract (Landcare Research), we use Atlassian products such as Jira & Confluence which are just excellent.  

I think it makes sense to open up the issue tracking to the public.  This will help align the feature requests and bug fix requests with an issue that can be tracked.  So I am happy to announce that the issue tracker for both the watchface and android app are now view-able by the public (that means you)!

There are 2 issue trackers.  This helps separate the bugs and feature requests.  Sometimes an issue will apply to both but that's not really a concern for you.  Just keep requesting features and reporting bugs.  I will create the issue and post back to your thread.  You can always check the progress (if its assigned to me, in progress, or has been resolved).

Let me know what you think about this.  Do you find value in this?

To my fellow Community members,

Since +Michael Speth now has a public bug tracker, it might be useful if we Community members establish "standards" for Bug Reports early on, especially if we want/expect to get to our Bugs quickly.
After all, Devs are by no means required to have a Google+ Community, so since they do we might as well make their lives easier & submit proper details in our Bug Reports...we've all read Reviews on the Play Store of "Crashes!!!! Fix it! Fix it! Fix it!" so let's take it up a notch & give some value to the Community.

I'd suggest following this template (it's the one I use across the various Communities I'm a member of & it gets good responses from Devs):

I would like to share a recent video I made briefly demonstrating Keyboarding Master Beta version 0.1.10 and used Awesomenauts as an example.

Anyone that has a Razer Nostromo or Belkin N52, Keyboarding Master is for you!
 
Beta version 0.1.9 has been released.  Its primarily focused on compatibility with Ubuntu versions after 12.04.  It seems that a supporting library required by Keyboarding Master doesn't work properly in later version of Ubuntu so a work around has been implemented which should work going forward regardless of the distro.

You can download the installer in the link below.

Note, I am planning on releasing Keyboarding Master on Ubuntu 14.04 on the Ubuntu Software Center.

Beta 0.1.10 has been released. This fixes a bug introduced in 0.1.9 where the scroll wheel causes the program to crash. Its highly recommended to upgrade to this version.

You will need to export profiles individually if you want to use your profiles in the new version.

Let me know if you have any problems.

I will not be buying the latest Diablo III expansion Reaper of Souls because Blizzard removed the Auction House.  Its not because I prefer spreadsheets over clicking on mobs.  Its not because I earned a lot of money selling items.  Its not because I am unable to click to find loot.

Its because Blizzard is devolving the game to satisfy the wims of the Hard Core Players and using this as a marketing tool to attempt to regain its users back (IE to sell copies of D3:RoS).

Many people will regurgitate the main stream propaganda that the Auction House caused poor drop rates and its the fault for Diablo 3's lackluster player base.  Lets be clear.  The poor drop rates are a decision to increase sales of the Auction House.  Its not the Auction House's FAULT!  

The modifications made to Loot 2.0 could exist along with the Auction House.  There are plenty of examples where Auction Houses work including Blizzard's own WoW.  Another fallacious argument is that Diablo 3 isn't the sort of game for an Auction House.  I point those people to the attached link and the following quote.  I point those people to the Black Market trading sites for D2 and the most damning evidence is most people actually used the AH in D3!!!!

“You always pay to win because you either pay in time or in a currency. Some people are rich in time, and some people are rich in currency. And anyone who spends more time will also have the skills to back it up. Plus, why not let people with a lot of money give your game time real-world value?”
