Test the latest release
There are two branches for KompoZer:
- KompoZer 0.7.x (current: 0.7.10) is considered as stable, though it doesn’t work any more with recent Linux distros.
- KompoZer 0.8.x (current: 0.8a4) is in development: we don’t recommend this version for prodution use, but if you want to help us please use this one and report all the bugs you find.
The latest release can be downloaded from the project page.
If you find a bug in KompoZer:
- make sure you’re using the latest release
- login on SourceForge.net
- check in the Bug Tracker that this bug hasn’t been already reported:
- if it’s already reported, add a comment in the same bug report
- if it’s not reported yet, please create a new bug report
- mention the version of KompoZer you’re using: version number (see the Help > “About” item), platform (windows, mac, linux…) and installed extensions (if any)
- give a step-by-step procedure to reproduce the bug: writing “KompoZer crashed” or “KompoZer goofed up” doesn’t help much if we can’t reproduce the bug
- describe what result you expected and what result you got
- attach a copy of the file you were working on (including CSS stylesheets)
Please be as sharp as possible when reporting a bug. It will take us much more time to solve it than for you to describe it — and if the description isn’t sharp enough, there are good chances we won’t address this bug report at all.
Of course, you may also submit a patch along with your bug report. ;-)
Suggest new features
If you think a new feature should be added in KompoZer:
- make sure you’re using the latest release before requesting a feature that has been added recently ;-)
- login on the KompoZe Feature Requests page
- check if your idea hasn’t been already suggested:
- if it’s already suggested,add a comment for an existing solution or propose your own
- if it’s not suggested yet, please submit your idea
Please understand that the Feature Requests list is just a way to organize a wish-list for KompoZer. If an idea makes sense and if it can be implemented nicely, we’ll be glad to work on it.
You might also want to try to implement your own idea with a patch or an add-on.
