Merry XMas...

...and a Happy New Year...

Yes, holiday season is near and I'd like to thank you for all your support....
So while 2011 finally brought utf8/unicode support to cmpro, there are some tasks on my list for 2012...

So....shhh...there is something near for the *messy* users out there....

...and if you wonder why Aladdin is listed so often...well.....shhhhh...come back in 2012 ;)
(...and the final look&feel might differ...currently it's more playing around a bit...)

ok to be a bit more concrete...

...it's some better software list support with the following features:

- software lists (not only one softwarelist) within a xml datfile are loaded
- when an exe-based dat (MAME, MESS, Haze's ultimate mame) lists software lists, you will be asked if you want to import them (all, some, none)
- software lists are then handled within 1 profile, so 1 scan scans them all
- software lists are added as systems, so you can (and actually have to) assign a system default path for each of them
- double set names / descriptions shouldn't harm

So that's what in the end should form the next version....I just started with parsing them (xml dat) and adding them as systems....so the exe-based dat part is on the todo list...the rest will be some testing for possible issue handling in case of equal set names within various lists...also there is an option question how to name a profile in case of a multi-softwarelist xml....(the single lists got names, the outer softwarelists tag does not)...

well...that's general something for 2012/Q1...no idea when I find time after the holiday season to work on it...but that's on my list for now...

Enjoy the holidays....
