It would be a courtesy to the customers, to publish a list of known/acknowledged bugs in RouterOS. And, if possible, a guess, when/how it might be fixed.

I have a serious outstanding problem, for which I first of all got unusable explanations like "I can not see how this is possible" or "It is a browser bug" etc., and then, after a lot of explanations to clarify the problem, and my presentation of a simply scenario how to recreate the problem, no more response at all any more.

Having an official "List of known Bugs" at least I would have some kind of feedback, whether my problem is recognized as a bug or not, and when I might receive a solution.

All known bugs are usually corrected in the next release, and time between releases are not so big to be a big problem.

Only issues that take more that 1 release to fix is Linux Kernel related problems and usually that is mentioned in the changelog as known issue.

Are you sure that your problem is RouterOS problem? Have you done something verify that?

Actually, I am very sceptical regarding this statement.

Of course, I am NOT 100% shure. So I asked to recreate the problem, which will take about 10 Minutes in case you have a running RouterOS system available AND a knowledgeable user. Which I assume should be available at Mikrotik.
My time, I spent already on presenting my very problem, is much higher already.
But again: No serious response from Mikrotik. Have a look for yourself: http://forum.mikrotik.com/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=28642

I agree with the OP

IMHO Mikrotik would save time and resources if they did this.

I simply used the "Evaluation Version" of RouterOS, to carefully check, whether it is suitable for my purpose (hotspot+ads) or not.
And I detected a serious bug.
So obviously my checking is more careful than the tests of the developers.
No wonder, I am an expirienced developer myself. I even programmed a SM-4, in case, this tells you something :-)
Because of use of evaluation version, I can not access the support.
