09-Dec-2018: New Crashes Page Release

  • BugSplat has released a rebuilt version of the Crash page. This release includes the launch of new features including:

  • Advanced column filtering options: use the +Add Filter button to quickly find the crashes you're searching for based on an expanded field of inputs.

  • Customizable column visibility settings easily show or hide columns to improve your workflow in BugSplat.

  • In-row crash details: click the far left > to see information on any crash without having to navigate to the individual crash page.

  • Improved crash comment column: quickly add comments to an individual crash from right on the All Crash page.

09-Nov-2018: Unity Native Version 1.2.0

  • Added support for passing flags to BsSndRpt. The BugSplat.MSDF_LOGCONSOLE flag will instruct BsSndRpt to not remove the dmp file when posting a crash report. Fixes bug that prevented some crash reports from being sent to BugSplat.

31-October-2018: SendPdbs

  • This update forces SendPdb symbol uploads to use TLS1.2, which improves security during upload. The log output has also been updated to include timestamps and a new /verbose flag which may be useful in diagnosing slow uploads. The new version of SendPdbs can be downloaded separately and is also included in the updated versions of the Windows Native, Windows .NET, Unreal, Unity, and Crashpad SDKs.

19-Oct-2018: Planned Database Upgrade

  • BugSplat will be upgrading our database on Saturday October 27th. The website will be operational during the upgrade, however, there will be a short period of time where new data will not be persisted in the updated database. If you notice any missing data from the morning of 27-Oct-2018 (MST) please contact Our support team is here to recover anything that is critical.

17-Sept-2018: BugsplatMac

  • Released version 1.0.7 of the BugsplatMac SDK. This release includes support for multiple file attachments.

15-September-2018: Planned Database Upgrade

  • We experienced brief periods (1-2 minutes) of web app downtime during our database upgrade on Saturday September 15th. During these periods new crash reports may have been rejected by our servers.

30-August-2018: Intermittent Authentication Errors

  • From August 28th through the morning of August 30th, BugSplat experienced intermittent errors connecting to our AWS DynamoDB database. These errors typically appeared under high load. As a result, some customers experienced failures during login or when using SendPdbs for automatic symbol uploads. A restart of our EC2 instances appears to have cleared the problem. Our investigation to determine the root cause of the issue continues. Postmortem: It appears that configuration changes to a DynamoDB table invalidated some existing DynamoDB connections. A restart cleared the problem.

27-August-2018: Version

  • This release fixes a bug in setGuardBytesBufferSize() in the Windows Native SDK. All customers using setGuardBytesBufferSize() should upgrade to this version.

14-August-2018: Unreal Upgrade

  • Integrating Unreal with BugSplat is now performed by configuration changes in the Unreal environment. See our Unreal docs for a full description. Our previous Unreal SDK package has been removed from the site.

07-August-2018: Electron Crash Analysis

  • Electron spawns multiple processes and applications should call electron.crashReporter.start in each process to register a Crashpad/Breakpad handler with the appropriate metadata. In the past, failure to register all processes could result in crash reports that could not be analyzed. BugSplat now attempts to provide a good default when this information isn't supplied.

01-August-2018: Dashboard Release

  • Dashboard replaces Overview as the in-app landing page. Includes improvements to charting, mobile responsiveness, and analytics.

  • Compare crash rate across custom timeframes.
