AMD recently rolled out the Radeon Software Adrenalin 2020 Edition Driver version 20.20.01.05 (opens in new tab) for members of Microsoft's Windows Insider Program that work with Microsoft Windows Subsystem for Linux (WSL). As spotted by a Redditor (opens in new tab), the latest software package incorporates a new feature where users fill a simple form to report bugs and crashes.
Prior to the AMD Bug Report Tool, the option for reporting bugs consists of a link that opens an internal web browser that sends Radeon users to AMD's website, which seemed like a primitive method of doing things. As simple as it may sound, the updated bug reporting integration now opens a tool where users can send crash reports directly to AMD.
More importantly, the tool now grabs all your system's specifications automatically, information that you previously had to manually input every time you want to create a report for a bug.
AMD's Radeon driver has often been the recipient of negative feedback. The new feature is certainly a step in the right path. On the flipside, the tool should also help AMD categorize and keep track of all the bugs and user feedback.
Mickey, an AMD representative (opens in new tab) on Reddit, stated that AMD will share more information on the tool soon.
