Yeah that's probably because of things I mentioned. I know JavaFX was pretty buggy too from experience in the first 8u45 release. Eclipse is even being affected by these Swing changes, so yeah. And like people are saying, it's most likely to occur where you are doing undefined things by the API. So I think a lot of those are going to creep up and break if they haven't already.
Just to mention I was not lying about cleaning up LateralGM. The new release is coming and there is nothing revolutionary, but many changes that make it more stable. I did some things like removing empty lines with tabs and other excess whitespace, I've enabled whitespace symbols in Eclipse now and these won't pop up from me again. I addressed an issue reported by sorlok, you can now actually rename instances in the room editor for the GMX format, instances will have a randomly hashed name when a GMK is loaded for convenience. I've also made external editors more reliable, image editing used to annoy me because it would always fail after the second save and I never realized to fix it. Turns out the problem was leaving the file handle open, which was a similar issue with EGM when I first got here. In other places some of the layouts have been improved, and then there's the new hex color picker.
Right now I am waiting for 3 icons from Josh because I added the buttons for Community, Website, and Submit Issue to the help menu which you can configure the URI's in preferences just like with documentation. I need icons for those buttons and Josh has been too busy to do them. Also, the room editor has the nice transparency pattern now on its viewport. There's a host of tiny little bugs that I've fixed, all of which will be in the change log and I'm doing the best I can to make sure the solutions are correct. The other thing I am waiting on is to discuss how to revamp the preferences frame so changes can be reverted on it, I want to discuss that with Josh. Then clean up any mistakes I made in JoshEdit and the issue with building LGM right now, then release.
