Hi all,
Re: Helder's references to the bug tracker.

I'm a bit confused.  I thought the bug tracker was a replacement for the 
static bug list, not a replacement for inquiring about problems via this 
mailing list.

I would think most more casual users would first want to inquire about a 
potential bug before posting it on the bug tracker.  I also thought that 
the bug tracker was more for the people testing and working on fixes for 
Amaya than for the rest of us.

Or is this list now only be used to announce the release of new versions?

Thanks for any clarification any of you can provide.
