Bug reports and feature requests are welcome.

If relevant, attach the file you were editing on the issue.
You can also add the system information gathered by Glaxnimate itself: Go to Help > About... > System and click Copy, then you can paste on the issue the system information.
You can create packages to port Glaxnimate to a specific system, setting up an automatable process to create said package so it can be integrated with continuous integration.
Packages that need help
- Android: Needs setting up a build pipeline and be ported to a modern version of Qt
- Mac DMG: Needs to include dependencies as framework
- Windows: Needs reducing the shipped zip size and fixing platform-specific issues
If you want to port Glaxnimate to a different system of package manager, feel free to do so!
If the process can be automated the script can be added to continuous integration so it gets built automatically.
