Stabilizer 0.2.4

Stabilizer is a system for quickly stabilizing buggy GUI applications.
The Stabilizer bug tracking system aims to quickly stabilize buggy GUI applications so that people can get real work done with them.

In our approach, thousands/millions of users collaboratively and quickly stabilize a buggy GUI application simply by using the application normally and reporting any bugs that they encounter to prevent anyone (including themselves) from encountering those same bugs again.

In particular, as soon as a few people report the same bug, warnings will be issued to all users whenever they are about to trigger that bug and they will be given the opportunity to abort the input event -- thus avoiding the bug altogether and keeping the application stable.

We expect such an approach to be several orders of magnitude faster than stabilizing an application by a handful of developers fixing bugs. Of course, those bugs need to be fixed eventually, but why not make the application useful in the meantime? Indeed, this will encourage more people to use alpha/beta releases of the application on a regular basis and report more (distinct) bugs.
