Who's minding the Windows app board?

I installed (and quickly uninstalled) the latest Windows app due to it being completely unstable and not playing back media, so I stopped by the Windows board and I see not a single response by anyone from Plex since April 20th! Who's filling in for @pombeirp? Anyone?

    Yeah I wondered that as well. I've not had many issues personally (and I use it every day on a Surface) but there's certainly been plenty of issues reported recently without much developer input. Hopefully he's hard at work on fixing issues.

    I noted exactly the same thing at this thread: https://forums.plex.tv/discussion/269560/w10m-unable-to-play-media-no-elements-followed-by-crash.

    It's only normal that people take breaks, vacations, whatever. But it should not be a one man show thing, although he is clearly a brilliant programmer and a very communicative and participant in this forum (Kudos to pombeirp!)

    I guess that's what we are stuck with, considering how Plex envisioned it's business model... Anyways, I guess that other areas are more or less at the same level, where there's probably only one main developer for a given platform app.

    At least a simple comms saying that "We tested this and could repro but unfortunately we need XYZ to come back from vacations to fix this. We apologize for the inconvenience, but just hang in there a little bit."

    We are not animals, therefore we are going to fully understand such situations.

    For some reason, things like this get so much support for Android and iOS. With UWP there are so many users and yet it is treated like the **** child. Ridiculous.
