That team may just have hit their creative wall with the overall Komodo software architecture-system design? I'm not a programmer but it would seem that it may have gone its limit.

Uh, no...or they kinda did, but that is why they turned to the Monte Carlo type stuff "Alpha Zero 'technology...'" and have said they may even drop the regular Komodo in favor of it before too long.

Oh, and bug fixed...but now someone found another bug, so expect a 12.2.2 before long.

I noticed them saying on Talk Chess after this new bug: "We appreciate the input from many users who reported these issues. Komodo is not a big enough business to be able to test every release under every possible circumstance."

Not big enough...but they charge $60 for their product. But to their credit, they do get to work on fixing their bugs.

Stop bickering. You need not buy it if $60 is too much for you.

Not sure who this is directed towards... as no one is implying $60 is too much to pay or 'bickering'. Perhaps you posted your comment in the wrong thread? The complaint is that they do not do enough testing and make releases which constantly have to be updated.

Heck, even the version Chessbase requested only gets one update: those who purchased from Chessbase are stuck with the bugs. Very bad. But then that is why the smart person purchases full releases (10, 11, 12 for example) direct from Team K.... I've subscribed once or twice and made direct purchases. One from Chessbase...never again.

People scream bloody murder when they don't get constant updates.
No, really.  When they had no updates for a long period, the rabble had broken out the pitchforks and the torches and were ready to storm the castle.

So I guess the bottom line is: "No matter what, you can't please everybody."
But I guess we all knew that already.
