Some problems I am having

Donnie, among the open job positions SiFive are currently advertising I noticed this:

Hiring a whole developer (as opposed to those fractional developers) to focus almost solely on the tooling is quite a big influx of resources, so I’m sure your issues will be addressed thoroughly.

Thanks, Dave. That is good to hear. Drew did respond quickly and competently. And, of course, I do realize that a beta version is bound to have some issues coming up. Reporting my issues is my small way of contributing.:smile:

Thanks Donnie, Dave. We take feedback very seriously as we want to have the best product possible. We have big plans for Freedom Studio over the next year, so stay tuned! In the meantime, please let us know anytime you have questions.
