Am really glad to hear this. I went back to v3.5 because 4.1 was so unstable.

Will be keen to try it again at some stage.

Thanks goodness! The old compressor was so ugly and old-school and the new one just simply didn't work on either of my machines because I had Qmaster configured (and, surprisingly, working).

After I updated to 4.1 I couldn't get a single batch to finish. Not even a single file/single output batch. It was so buggy. In fact, I think I've experienced every bug they fixed in this real ease. It is a good day indeed.
