About the Bug Reports category

This category is for reporting bugs relating to the Playdate SDK, hardware, documentation, etc.

We're switching over from having you report bugs that you find on our Gitlab to having them directly posted here! One of us at Panic will file those bugs for you to make sure things are organized and prioritized in the tracker.
