Apple reactivates redesigned bug-reporting tool for developers

updated 10:30 am EDT, Mon September 2, 2013

Now features auto-saving, improved search, duplicate prevention, more

The redesigned developer-only Apple Bug Reporter, briefly taken live during last June's Worldwide Developer's Conference, has returned with new features and a general cleanup of the ambitious redesign. The web app, sometimes known as Radar, lets developers file bug reports on any of Apple's applications, services or problems and flaws found in either of the company's two operating systems. While the original version of the new bug reporter was said to itself be buggy and incomplete, the new version appears to be feature-complete.

The new bug reporter is considerably faster and includes a number of much-requested features, such as auto-saving (every five minutes) of reports-in-progress. The program also now helpfully alerts developers if the bug report they are submitting has already been filed. Searching and attaching files are also said to have been noticeably improved. The design is said to allow for future improvements and functionality to be rolled out more gracefully as well.
