Question: (Wanted to just thank you for taking the time to answer so courteously over the years but since this is called Ask Justin...) How do you test REAPER and has your approach to testing changed since the Winamp days?

    I use version control a lot more than I did with Winamp originally, so there's a lot of diffing and thought given to those changes. I try to test everything I change, and make tests for things that I think could be affected, but I don't usually keep those long term. The biggest things we do is encourage pre-release testing by as many users who wish to test, the whole "closed" or "invite-only" pre-release cycle thing is a huge waste IMO. I'm pretty happy having a site with bleeding edge versions and a forum to discuss them, and ending up (eventually) with stable builds that go to the main web site...

    REAPER is probably one or two orders of magnitude more complex than Winamp was, heh.
