If you follow these steps:
  1. Start a new griddler.
  2. Draw something.
  3. Press Save.
  4. Draw more.
  5. Close the applet.
  6. To the question about saving, reply "No".
  7. Open the griddler again.
You get the griddler at the point it was after 4), but instead old applet gave you what was saved in 3) (which I understand is the correct behaviour). It is frustrating, because it destroys the ability to save the puzzle before starting to guess so you can return to a safe point if your guesses were wrong.

Other than that, the new applet is awesome. It took little time to get used to, and the improvements are great. I love most the ability to clear whole rectangles, and the ability to make drawing rectangles (instead of lines) the default. Good work!

Go to another puzzle and back to the puzzle you saved. You'll get the saving record after 3. Until Ra100 finds a solution to at least you can get the correct saving record with one more click.

The workaround seems to work. Is a bit uncomfortable, but at least it will prevent losing work. Now, to wait for the fix...
