we have been working on a new Backstage in the past weeks. Before we flip the switch and go live with the new code, we need to do some real world testing. So if you have a few moments to spare, please help us by logging in into the new backstage, downloading your copy of Renoise and letting us know if you encountered some major issues.
The new Backstage uses an own version of the database. All data has been migrated about two weeks ago, so If you purchased Renoise after that your account wont’t be available in the new Backstage yet. - Login scheme has changed, instead of " " it is your primary email address now. - Downloads take a couple of seconds (Windows) up to 20-30 seconds (Mac/Linux) to prepare. Just be patient, we need to add some notes on the download page (perhaps a progress-bar or something) to make this clearer. - The login-form can be a bit bitchy at the moment when used with password managers. So if the login-button is not enabled, re-enter your credentials manually (or change at least one char per field). - We can only fix bugs which we can reproduce. So while we would love to hear all of your problems, it would be really great if you could provide as many details as necessary to reproduce a problem. I know this is not always possible. - Always include your browser type, browser version and operating system information in a issue report.
Known / confirmed Issues
Legacy Passwords (migrated from the Old-Backstage) will only work once. You will need to change your Password once you logged in, or perform a Password-Recovery. - Proposed download-arch seems to be a bit wonky for at least Windows downloads - OS X 32 Bit downloads are borken.
Confirmed here as well, firefox linux 32bit. Logged in once, can’t login again.
Btw, it only shows the version for the OS and bit-addressing i’m using at the moment. What if i want to download another one for a different computer that can’t access the web, or different OS/bit-addressing on the same computer?
