List of recent product changes and updates for BugSplat. We announce these updates via Twitter.
19-Oct-2018 - Planned Database Upgrade BugSplat will be upgrading our database on Saturday October 27th. The website will be operational during the upgrade, however, there will be a short period of time where new data will not be persisted in the updated database. If you notice any missing data from the morning of 27-Oct-2018 (MST) please contact firstname.lastname@example.org. Our support team is here to recover anything that is critical.
17-Sept-2018 - BugsplatMac Released version 1.0.7 of the BugsplatMac SDK. This release includes support for multiple file attachments.
15-September-2018 - Planned Database Upgrade We experienced brief periods (1-2 minutes) of web app downtime during our database upgrade on Saturday September 15th. During these periods new crash reports may have been rejected by our servers.
30-August-2018 - Intermittent Authentication Errors From August 28th through the morning of August 30th, BugSplat experienced intermittent errors connecting to our AWS DynamoDB database. These errors typically appeared under high load. As a result, some customers experienced failures during login or when using SendPdbs for automatic symbol uploads. A restart of our EC2 instances appears to have cleared the problem. Our investigation to determine the root cause of the issue continues. Postmortem: It appears that configuration changes to a DynamoDB table invalidated some existing DynamoDB connections. A restart cleared the problem.
27-August-2018 - Version 126.96.36.199 This release fixes a bug in setGuardBytesBufferSize() in the Windows Native SDK. All customers using setGuardBytesBufferSize() should upgrade to this version.
14-August-2018 - Unreal Upgrade Integrating Unreal with BugSplat is now performed by configuration changes in the Unreal environment. See Unreal Integration for a full description. Our previous Unreal SDK package has been removed from the site.
07-August-2018 - Electron Crash Analysis Electron spawns multiple processes and applications should call electron.crashReporter.start in each process to register a Crashpad/Breakpad handler with the appropriate metadata. In the past, failure to register all processes could result in crash reports that could not be analyzed. BugSplat now attempts to provide a good default when this information isn't supplied.
01-August-2018 - Dashboard Release Dashboard replaces Overview as the in-app landing page. Includes improvements to charting, mobile responsiveness, and analytics. See the release video here.
30-July-2018 - Version 188.8.131.52 Added new method setGuardBytesBufferSize(). This can be used along with the MDSF_USEGUARDMEMORY option to specify the size (in bytes) of the guard buffer. The default buffer size is 4 mb.
11-June-2018 - Unity Native Version 1.1.0 Added support for Unity 2018.1.
25-May-2018 - Unreal Version 1.4.0 Added the ability to specify a folder with additional files that will be attached to the crash report upload.
25-May-2018 - Unity Native Version 1.0.1 Fixed an issue where crashes that occurred in quick succession wouldn't post correctly. Fixed an issue locating crash files on systems when the username was changed and no longer matched the user profile directory.
02-May-2018 - SendPdbs Version 184.108.40.206, BsSndRpt Version 220.127.116.11 Upgrade of SendPdbs that improves symbol uploads and provides additional information on the Symbol Details page. This version also improves the Symbol Details page performance. Fixed an issue in BsSndRpt with '&' characters in the user description.
12-Apr-2018 - Unity Cross-Platform Version 1.4.0 Added ability to specify a callback that is executed after an error is posted to BugSplat via Reporter.SetCallback(Action<bool, string> callback). Fixed a warning about UnityWebRequest.Send being obsolete.
11-Apr-2018 - bugsplat-js 3.0.0 Released version 3.0.0 of bugsplat-js. This release adds a convenience function to automatically exit your application when it encounters a fatal error.

20-Jan-2018 - Website Update Old versions of SendPdbs have been retired as scheduled. If automated symbol uploads are not working for you, please upgrade to the latest version of SendPdbs (version 18.104.22.168) found in our Native and .NET downloads at https://app.bugsplat.com/downloads/.
Mandatory SendPdbs Upgrade - 16-November-2017
Support for legacy versions of SendPdbs will be discontinued at the end of the year.
We are retiring support for SendPdbs for any version prior to 22.214.171.124. Failure to upgrade will break your automated symbol upload process at the beginning of next year.
The current version of SendPdbs (version 126.96.36.199) can be found in our Native and .NET downloads at https://app.bugsplat.com/downloads/.
This version is backward compatible with all earlier versions of SendPdbs. This means that you can replace older versions of SendPdbs.exe with the new executable without having to integrate any other part of the SDK. Since SendPdbs is a backend tool, there is no need to update any of your released products.
14-Nov-2017 - Version 2.2.0 Original error parameter from bugsplat.post is now passed to the callback method as the 3rd parameter (requestError, responseBody, originalError). Fixed a bug where callback wasn't invoked when there was an error posting to BugSplat.
09-Nov-2017 - Website Update Rate limiting introduced for BugSplat website pages with the URL app.bugsplat.com. This rate limiting should not affect normal user navigation. However, customers integrating with our web services API should be prepared to handle HTML Error Code 429 - Too Many Requests.

02-Oct-2017 - Version 220.127.116.11 Improvements to out-of-memory crash reporting. We now allocate a larger guard memory block and free it earlier in the unhandled exception handler code. All Native Windows applications should use the MDSF_USEGUARDMEMORY flag to enable crash reports in out-of-memory situations. Also added back support for internal IP address reporting, which was dropped in version 18.104.22.168.
25-Oct-2017 - Version 1.0.0. Replaced setCallback with observables/subscriptions. Added type for BugSplat API response data. Removed extraneous dependencies and improved download times dramatically. Build changes to target ES5.
