Default SWS 2.9.5 bug (FIXED)

SWS 2.9.5.0 beta CRASHES! when the following actions are run..
custom action to De-ess
track: Select pre-FX volume envelope
SWS/wol: put selected envelope in media lane
envelope: insert 4 envelope points at time selection
SWS/BR: Decrease selected envelope points by 1 db (volume envelope only)
SWS/BR: Decrease selected envelope points by 1 db (volume envelope only)
SWS/BR: Decrease selected envelope points by 1 db (volume envelope only)
Envelope: Unselect all points

REAPER crashes with the same actions but with any volume envelope: track, take, pre-fx etc.
i switched back to SWS 2.8.8 and all is well.
i hope this is the proper forum to report.

It's not. SWS is not developed by Cockos, so bug reports for it should go here: https://github.com/reaper-oss/sws/issues

Ah, looks like some 5.50 support functionality is the cause...

IMHO That is a bad idea. SWS is a very important add-on to Reaper and hence it would be very appropriate if Cockos would host the support forum for SWS.

Sorry but no. Github is the central place for a collaborative effort like SWS is (and has been for quite some time now, too), it's only appropriate to post FRs and BRs there, because they are THE EASIEST TO TRACK when they are there. At least you should know that

Of course you are right, but normal users obviously will search help for problems, questions and suggestions in the Reaper forums. There should be a predefined way to handle those.

You're both correct. Here's my perspective as a hobby-level user.

If I have what I believe is an SWS-related issue, I come here first and GTS on the forum (site:forum.cockos.com "search-text"). If that works, great! If not, then what?

Nice to have the github link. Thanks! That's a new resource for me. That said, since there already exists a heavily used "SWS Extension Updates" thread in the forum (https://forum.cockos.com/showthread.php?t=29640), it seems logical and reasonable to me that a similar thread (por ejemplo "SWS Extension Issues") exist here.

I think it's important to confirm that the issue I'm having is a bug and to know if it's a Reaper or SWS issue, before posting a BR on github. IMO, this is the best place to do that.

Make it a sticky. Ask OPs who confirm SWS bugs to then post them to github. Keep the noise level on github down.

Case in point: Justin's comment that this could be a joint issue. Best found out here before posting to the SWS github site.

EDIT: There's also the SWS host site (http://www.sws-extension.org/). As a newbie, where am I supposed to go? Why, right here, of course!

EDIT: I gave up checking the SWS host site for updates some time ago. I was still on v2.8.3. This thread keyed me in to the fact that SWS is being actively updated, and that I need to start paying attention again.

EDIT: And then there's this on the home page of the SWS host site:

Forum

You can get some support and discuss the extension in the "official" REAPER forum thread (link above). To avoid any confusion, beta versions should be discussed in the pre-release thread (https://forum.cockos.com/showthread.php?t=153702).

I think what would make the most sense is to have a subforum (or a sticky thread) that is called "SWS issues", that would not be a subforum in and of itself , but would instead link to github directly. That will keep the reports all in one place, easy to track, etc.

SOLVED/FIXED

Thought it would be a good idea to mark this fixed - a VERY prompt 2.9.6 fix has been released already!
