The 2.7 release was primarily developed on Windows and extensively tested
there.  We haven't had any bug reports or support problems that suggest it
isn't stable.  If there was a far-ranging problem we would have had a lot of
feedback in support to that effect.  Obviously if there is a specific
problem, perhaps related to your machine or usage, we need to track it down
and fix it.  Please contact support at with as many details as you
have, and we will work with you to track it down from there.

Kind regards,
