Annoying WebWorks bugs that never seem to get fixed

[ Edited ]

I'm wondering why highly annoying WebWorks bugs never seem to get fixed. Every time an OS update pops up I'm hoping that there will be:

 

- no more ugly white screen flash when starting a WebWorks app

- no more random 'reboots' in my apps

- HTML5 Audio object.play() won't pause other music / sound playing

- a working Math.random()

- working hardware acceleration in CSS transitions

https://www.blackberry.com/jira/browse/WEBAPI-124

https://www.blackberry.com/jira/browse/TABLET-245

https://www.blackberry.com/jira/browse/TABLET-196

 https://www.blackberry.com/jira/browse/TABLET-192

 

The one about the white flash is closed with a remark 'this is an AIR bug' but nevertheless it's still there.

 

Any chance these things are going to get fixed?

 

Especially the random crashes one is really bad. I already had a user email me about it happening in my app.

Everybody at RIM seems to have gone quiet, so an update is certainly close to being released and hopefully some of these problems will be addressed.

You can add 'visual glitches' to the list -> https://www.blackberry.com/jira/browse/TABLET-205

and probably many more like the lack of support for maximum-scale, etc.

 

EDIT: Just checked 1.0.5 and every bug listed is still there.

Re: Annoying WebWorks bugs that never seem to get fixed

Have you checked out the latest v1.0.5.2304 of the Tablet OS that was just released to see if any of your issues have been resolved?

 

It would be great if it solved some of your issues and to know which ones were still outstanding.

Re: Annoying WebWorks bugs that never seem to get fixed

I did (and edited my post), none of them were fixed as far as I can tell.

 

I haven't made a backup to see if people still get the full source code of apps including oAuth keys and secrets (some devs are apparently not aware of the current situation).

Hi Tim,

 

Unfortunately they're all still outstanding Smiley Sad
