Bug with undoing?

Post by gmc_nxtman » March 8th, 2016, 10:28 pm

When on a mac in golly 2.8, a bug frequently appears after the "undo" hotkey is pressed repeatedly, in which the undo button fails to work and the following error pops up:

I've noticed a worse bug (or maybe the same bug with a worse outcome?) with undoing - in similar conditions on Windows, Golly will suddenly report that the rule specified is not compatible with any algorithm, making it impossible to undo any further.

Sometimes, on iPad, I will accidentally hit play, but also trigger the notification center. This causes an infinite play loop.

I'm pretty sure I've fixed all the undo-related bugs in the latest beta version.
