Personally, I had as many problems with 5.2.3, so I ain't going back. The things that are fixed in ASP compared to Bibble makes it worthwhile to switch to ASP now as it is. If ASP had not appeared, I would probably moved to something else.

This is completely counter productive because I saw many reviews on the net that are not very enthousiastic (the most positive appreciation was often that it is not so bad for its price!).
Or it could be that they wanted to get more people to use it than the group of beta testers ... And the negative comments usually comes from people deep into Adobe userland - we who use something other than Canon/Nikon get the same crap.

I think that they should coencentrate on improving speed first - darktable is so slow it's unusable on computers that runs Bibble/ASP fine.
