I was sent this email by a friend this morning. They happen to be a recent Snowie convert.

First they are having serious issues with crashing (4ply). After the weekend they will test the new release to see if that has been resolved. The constant crashing though gave rise to  a request for  an “Open Recent” menu option. Many programs on the file menu now have an “Open Recent” option that cascades to a sub list of the last 5 files that were opened via “Open”. I know there has been a movement towards cleaning up the user interface, but this suggestion doesn’t seem too bad.

If their crashes are less frequent (or eliminated) with the new release one could argue that its not worth it to have open recent. How often do people open the same match over and over? If it doesn’t occur often (It doesn’t for me) then it might be seen as some as a “nice to have feature” and not “needed feature”.

There is a feature I would like to see added to GNUBG.  If it is not already on the GNU wish list, could you please add it?
I'd like to see the ability to re-open the last 5 analyzed matches from the File - Open menu item.  its a little thing, but sure would save time since I often want to go back to the last match I saved.  And, with GNU crashing so often on my computer, it would just make life easier.  
So far I've crashed twice during a lesson and we had to wait while I got everything back.  Most of the crashes happen when I'm doing a 4-ply on a play and make the mistake of clicking my mouse anywhere else on the screen.  Anyway, its a small thing, but the small things make life so much easier.
