Adding 'Known Issues' to Github releases/tags

Postby Kunda1 » Fri Sep 20, 2019 1:50 pm

There are a few known issues we're encountering and it would be wise to inform users ASAP about them. Different projects do it differently
kdenlive has a known issues mentioned on their download pages (see Windows for example). Other projects put that information in the github.com releases/ info

I think we should both...that is mention something on the release/tag page and on the website (via the downloads page)

Ideas to add for known issues:
  • Topological naming
  • Display drivers turning screen black
  • Expat library version rollback

Funny that you mention it, because I had just thought after reading another post to add it to the known issues.

Added a hint to use the Qt4 version to the known issues topic.

Would adding a link to chrisb's sticky topic suffice?

Yea, that would be great. Perhaps also adding Topological Naming?

I would like to clean the Known issues topic, but I need help for Windows and Ubuntu.

Thanks!
Feedback: The link IMHO, is sort of getting lost in all that text. Perhaps differentiating it by giving it it's own header?

Code: Select all

## Known Issues
