    Actual work-in-progress

    Here's the actual changelog.
    I want to release this version sunday, as you see, LOTs of parts of the code have changed, so bugs can occur.

    If you have a little thing you want to add to this version you can request it here. But please, only SMALL requests, i have some functions to finish till sunday so i don't have many time more.

    Thanks for your interest


    Here's the changelog:

    Code:
    ****************************************
    	Version number: 0.7 beta.1	
    	Released: -			
    ****************************************
    
    IMPORTANT NOTES FOR THIS VERSION ONLY:
    ---------------------------------
    - CD autoplay and autodetect is dislabed for performances issues till next release
    - to add a custom external app button, you can, as before, create a button in skin.XML called "CUSTOM_APP_XXXX" where XXXX is the external app XML filename (example: MapMopnkey.xml). You MUST place this external app XML file in APPLICATIONS subfolder of NMC's install folder. This is the only solution till next release.
    - because this version is introducing a new external apps filesystem, you can't use neocar manager to manage external apps. You have to use a text editor to create a XML file containing application informations. Please look in APPLICATIONS subfolder of NMC's install folder.
    - you can now use your keyboard (or remote, with girder) to control NMC. Before neocar manager's new option panel, you have to look in "CLAVIER.XML" in NMC's install folder to configure the shortcuts. NOTE: unavailable in external apps "full" mode till next version.
    - formats tags are changed, please look at "format_tags.txt" for more infos.
    
    
    NMC CHANGES:
    ----------------------------------------------------------------
    - ADDED: click on any corner of loading screen to hide it
    - ADDED: you can now set a different font/align/color/size for each show mode (medium, full)
    - ADDED: you can add multiple formats (separator is "|") to any text. Just click on it in NMC to dynamically change the text. Note that formats tags are changed.
    - ADDED: if NMC crashes, at next restart last played track is now reloading
    - ADDED: new "one click mode" for the filelist module, just click to open folder / file, keep pushed to select / view infos
    - ADDED: on-screen display to show all actions made on the keyboard. Volume is showing a progress bar also, and in AVS or VIDEO full mode, informations are shown ON TOP of the video, like any standard OSD.
    - ADDED: new system to load preview images in filelists. Now, when you start NMC, you load a filelist, then it starts to load the files in cache. First: Filelist is showing without previews, then when the filelist is fully shown, previews are loading, like previews in Window's Explorer. Then NMC will never load theses images from disk again. Only from memory. This is a big jump in performances.
    - ADDED: new "minimize" button in applications full mode. If you minimize an application, it appears as "playing" in filelist and you just have to click on it again to bring up the full mode again.
    - ADDED: unlimited launched apps (you can restore it at any time)
    - ADDED: if you click on a application XML, NMC show in memory to find an eventual instance of this app, if one is found, NMC add it to launched apps an you can directly embed it in skin.
    - ADDED: new button to quickly switch between launched applications from full mode (rotate apps, like a ALT-TAB)
    - ADDED: new option for applications -> remove_borders. It allows you to choose hiding X pixels from the application's borders each side
    - ADDED: new option for applications -> allow_multiple_instances. With this option you can choose to let you start multiples applications instances
    - ADDED: new dynamic button in applications normal mode -> if you have selected a application with "allow_multiples_instances" to True in filelist, this button appears and let you restore the instance in memory (because clicking on filelist again will launch another instance)
    - ADDED: you can now lauch an application from any NMC's filelist.
    - ADDED: the balance is centering upon lauching of a GPS application
    - ADDED: "antiflood" system at start of video module, to prevent changing module before video is loaded.
    - CHANGED: updated official Blue skin
    - CHANGED: the applications module is now using a standard filelist. The apps shortcuts handling is changed as well. Now, you just set a little XML file containing external app's launch informations and you just have to open it trough any filelist of NMC.
    - CHANGED: totally recoded skin code and filelist management code for all modules
    - CHANGED: recoded most parts of modules core
    - CHANGED: now, while changing to previous or next track, if the album is the same as current track, "current_folder" text will continue scrolling
    - CHANGED: you can now select FILES and FOLDERS together when adding to playlist
    - CHANGED: if you close the embedded audio module while in main and you have a preview shown, the logo will now reload after you close audio.
    - BUGFIX: a BIG bug in audio management, causing to crash while returning from video to audio or sometimes from other modules while not using embedded audio.
    - BUGFIX: now the logo / album preview in main management is fixed
    - BUGFIX: lots of bugs related to module change fixed
    - BUGFIX: a bad function causing some videos to play veeeeerrryy sloooowwwwwwlyyy
    - BUGFIX: new external apps management for setting launched app always on top of other windows. No "blink" of the form yet (or, a liiiiittle bit ;) )
    - BUGFIX: systray icon was not removing on NMC's exit.
    
    NSW CHANGES:
    ----------------------------------------------------------------
    - CHANGED: updated to support NMC's new functions
    
    NM CHANGES:
    ----------------------------------------------------------------
    - removed some currently unavailable options, like external apps manager (please use the file "example.xml" in NMC's "applications" subfolder)
    
    INSTALLER:
    ----------------------------------------------------------------

    Wooooo this makes me very happy

    I've been waiting for NMC to be released to bad the sunday release will be monday for me now im gonna have to wait till i get home

    Good work otherwise

    I got some questions
    - ADDED: "antiflood" system at start of video module, to prevent changing module before video is loaded.
    If the video neverloads will the anitflood make the video screen stay there forever?

    Also a little request

    Could you add TV support?? there is a plugin for winamp and guino has done this so maybe you can ask him to see if it's possible to intergrate the plugin without needed winamp?

    But thats a semi big request so don't worry to much

    Great work i love it can't wait i've got goose bumps ^_^
