Improved Exception Handling
We have also drastically improved exception handling for both Python and native code, especially on Windows.
Whenever Python raises an unhandled exception a message box pops up on Windows and on other systems the exception is printed out to the terminal if it happens outside of the UI thread.
When the issue is more serious and results in a crash the user will be presented with the following message box on Windows.
If the crash happened from Python code, the user is given the possibility to retrieve a backtrace of the last executed Python methods.
If the crash happened in the native code, it’s now possible to create a dump file.
