rounding bug


BuildCalc user Brad found a critical bug tonight.  This bug uses the denominator of the first number in an arithmetic operation as the denominator for the result.  Not good.  He was gracious enough to let me call him so I could understand what it took to manifest.  It took about an hour to clearly understand this problem, debug, code, test and add the input that gives this problem to the unit test suite (now a little over 6,000 unit test cases!).

Two hours after we talked, a new Binary was submitted to Apple – if we are as fortunate as last time, a new version will be on the App store in about a week.  I know that I will sleep better once everyone has upgraded.  In the mean time, check out the FAQ page for a work around.  If you’re not comfortable with waiting for the App store upgrade or the work around, please contact me at  and I can add help you get a beta copy with this issue fixed.

Also in version 1.2:

  • All of the changes from beta 1.1.1
  • Clean-up of some spelling and grammatical errors in the help files
  • Links to and email support on the bottom of the help files
