Rules Machine crashed while app was being developed

Had almost finished a beautiful new rule when, BLAM. The Rules machine crashed with java errors, I do not know java, but I think the Rules machine has a bug. Who do I talk to about this?

I believe @bravenel has been stomping out bugaboos of this nature lately, so I'm tagging him for consideration. All I know is that the "crashed" RM rule that I recently submitted for his inspection was suddenly open-able and edit-able after the last firmware update (nb. I see you have one pending for your hub).

Do you recall what was your most recent edit/Action before the error cropped up? Any chance it involved Variable ► SetVariable?

(This post probably belongs under the 'Rule Machine' category so may get moved there.)

Are you on latest release If not, please update and see if this is still a problem.

See PM I am sending you.

I was able to track this issue down, and have a fix for it. Something happened with a local variable "WaitLoopTime" being deleted while still being used in the Repeat. The fix did bring the rule back to life, although that one action is broken.

Thanks for the fast fix!

Is there an is update?

Is there an OS update?

Not yet. Fix is in, but not released yet.

When can a release be expected?

Don’t know how long you’ve been a Hubitat user. But the average time between releases is 2-3 months.

I would anticipate the next version going to beta testers in less than a month, and being released in less than 2 months. There’s no other home automation product whose developers work on such a tight development cycle.
