I'm experiencing a lot of trouble with the editor randomly crashing on me. Sometimes it's browsing the database, sometimes it's editing a map... the worse is when it happens when I try to save the project. I haven't noticed any pattern to it.
There was one time when it corrupted my Animations.json file (it had 0 bytes). Fortunately, I had a backup, so I didn't lose a lot...
Still, it's kinda annoying how unstable the program seems to be. Is anyone having the same issue? How can I fix it?

Yeah... but previous versions were also crashing. I was hoping updating would solve that problem.

Do you run an antivirus software? It might be interfering with MV's normal functionality, causing unexpected failures.

Are you saving to your hard drive or to a USB? Do you have plenty of space available? Are you saving to a folder that gets synchronised with an online service automatically?

Yeah, I have plenty of space in the HD, and the folder isn't being synchronized anywhere. The crashes happen randomly, not only when saving. Last time happened when I was editing a map.

Not sure where to go from here. Nobody else has (that I've seen) been complaining about the same issue, so it's got to be something with your system. I'd be looking at what else is running in the background at the same time, check that all your drivers (esp graphics) are up to date. Open up Task Manager and go to Processes and see what else is running in the background.

there is absolutely no randomness in any computer (even the so-called "random generators" are never truly random, just following a mathematical function that no human can calculate), and the editor itself has been proven stable on thousands of other PCs, so it has to be something on your computer that causes these crashes.

And without more info, we can only guess like above.
Here are a few more guesses:
1) have you tried to reinstall the editor to see if the file has been damaged?
2) if you don't have an antivirus, it might be that your computer is already virus-infected and that virus is crashing MV when it tries to infect it
3) some other background program like parental guidance programs, network user security or so on blocks the editor
4) use a program like checkdrive to read out the SMART-status of your HDD - it might be short of a hardware failure and in that case you'll need a new HDD within the next few months.

I'm having the "same" issue. I can't speak on the randomness of it but using 4.15 I have been experiencing crashes that I hadn't before. But honestly, my HDD might be failing so I should check on that myself. Outside of HDD issues, I'm not sure what could be causing my crashes.
