As I now try to do my every-day-work with 3.17.2 I see that Gambas3 has 
lost stability and reliability compared to 3.16.3 in a way I never saw 
at a release of a new sub version.

I have to go back to 3.16 because 3.17 at current state is unusable for 
me. I am quite glad that I have not yet rolled out 3.17 in my firm and 
that we have our own Apt server.

There are numerous things that happened this morning while I was 
debugging a feature, for instance:

Doubleclick on a variable showed "3 " while the content was 30. This 
drove me crazy as I first mentioned a lot of other things to be the 
reason but not the IDE.

The IDE crashed while debugging as a DB result had an empty column. I do 
not know if it crashed because of that, because in the next run the IDE 
did not crash.

I had to start the IDE with 'GB_GUI=gb.qt4 gambas3' because with Qt5 
autocompletion is buggy (only on my main computer) and with Gtk3 the 
Layout of the IDE is flickering and broken.


This morning Gambas looked like PyGlade as I tried it out in 2014: 
Crashes and weird behavior ...

... normally I know Gambas3 and the IDE as rock solid.

Now I really have to agree to a "sabbatical freeze".

Alles Gute
