Beta 22 - Database Safety Patch

During our testing, we discovered that in some cases, the database could be damaged. We are not entirely sure of the cause yet, but we suspect that it is because of an internal switch that we enabled in one of the recent beta releases.

We have not received any report of this problem, besides from our own testing, but since the problem, if it happens, is serious enough to require a re-installation, we are releasing beta 22 with the internal switch turned off, which should help alleviate the problem.

The new version has been pushed out to automatic update service and should reach you presently.

Beta 21 - Maintenance Release

Coming right behind the coattail of the last beta is Bun beta 21, another release from our recent focus on stability and performance.

As with the last release, there has is no new features in this release, but it does have some significant improvements on performance and stability. In general, we have released memory by 30 MB - 100 MB, and also fixed a memory leak that previously would terminate Bun sporadically. Performance has been improved as well, and Bun now runs even more gracefully in the background.

Within the next few hours, by way of automatic update, you should find the new version running on your computer.

Beta 20 - Maintenance Release

We have just released beta 20 of bun. For the past few months, we have been placing more focus on the stability and performance of bun, and this is the first release that reflects our effort.

No new features are in this release, but bun is running a little faster and a little more stable. Since it was pushed out to automatic update yesterday, you should find it running on your desktop already.
