The dysfunction in the above issues is such that the specific features do not perform as expected, or as documented. However, the user impact is very low.

The dysfunction in the above issues is such that use of the specific features should be with due care, or avoided entirely. However, most features in the tool or tool component operate correctly.

Tullik, have you considered 'melding' these into a single list?

It was that way some time ago.

However, the current phpBB software settings allow a maximum of ten links per post. :shock:

If or when it allows a greater number, I could change quickly. The "master" including links is actually an Excel .xls workbook.

In relation to PT2009:

    * issue 18 applies to PT2008 documentation; PT2009 documentation has a complete table.

    * issues 16, 17, 19, and 22: as originally reported, these issue are likely not applicable in PT2009.

    * issue 21: Win 98 does not start in the 1.9.0.528.version of PT2009 (missing dll).

    * issue 20: many items in this issue will probably not be addressed until after PT2009. Significant changes in the System Cleaner tool and Automation Tool are likely to be needed to provide the implied enhancements.
