They did not implement a new method to list bug reports, confirmed bugs etc in the forum. It’s the opposite, that they would no longer do so. Debating the point is an absurd way to pass your time.
If you want to report a bug in the forum, just do it. If you really want your report to count, use your my steinberg account to file a support request with a real repro. There have always been many, many items in the dev’s bug list that did not appear on the forum.
One thing that’s been unclear about the forum is that it’s a user to user forum. But, since Steinberg staff participate, voluntarily, I might add, the expectation that the forum is an official technical support venue has grown.
imo, it’s just as well they got rid of the former structure, since it added to the false expectations, and was never up-to-date. Now support staff has more time to devote to support, and clearly, they are in great need of that.
