    Jan 2009 *NEW RoadRunner updates* (coming soon to a pc near you)

    IT is coming

    the elves where hard at work....

    got a bunch of new skin commands
    a complete new plugin loader

    here is the newest history as of now:


    LEGEND:
    - = Removed
    + = Added
    * = Changed
    ! = Major code change
    # = bug fix
    ^ = Note

    01/05/08
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    ! Plugin processing additions
    Plugins are now loaded via 3 methods, in this order: GLOBAL, SKINDIR, "menu.skin"
    [All plugins must meet the required class (.RRExtension) and be registered as com]

    -GLOBAL: the "Road Runner/Plugins/" directory is searched for .dlls that qualify (recusively)
    when found, they are tested for requirements and loaded. This type of plug in
    is ONLY loaded ONCE, and never unloaded (except shutdown). Some good examples would be
    "Skintool", "RRExtended", and "MJSGUAS"

    -SKINDIR: the "SKINPATH/Plugins/" ("SKINPATH" is the current skin directory)
    directory is searched for .dlls that qualify (recusively)
    when found, they are tested for requirements and loaded. This type of plug in
    is loaded and unloaded as required by skinchange.

    - "menu.skin": same as before, loaded based on skin code "X,pluginname"
    they are tested for requirements and loaded. This type of plug in
    is loaded and unloaded as required by skinchange.

    to simply have a skin use a plugin, install it in the skinpath, example "movietimes"
    "C:\Program Files\Road Runner\Skins\Carwings_Dynamic\Plugins\MovieTimes"
    no more need to edit menu.skin or some skins use "plugins.txt"


    12/15/08
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    + "ONSCREENCHANGE" Event called when screen is changed
    + "ONCOMMANDINVALID" Event Called when no matching cmd


    12/14/08
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    * "RELOADSCREEN" improved, now "RELOADSCREEN;TRUE" will preserve list positions, and custom lists (CL)
    * "RELOADSKIN" improved, now if followed by a "load;skin_name.skin" then menu.skin will not display (blink)


    12/10/08
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    * Improvements to "ACTIVESOURCEID" (now will be a bit more accurate with 5 (Audio))
    + Added "PLAYSOUND" skin command - "PLAYSOUND;wavefile.wav"
    * SiriusComm - improvements for new design of SC-C1 interface, also on radios that are NEW and unactivated (free preview channels)
    + "CLOSEWINAMPONEXIT=TRUE/FALSE" - RR.ini setting, its default is true, but if you want to keep it running, when you exit from rr, set to false
    + Added "mediaInfo.dll" to installer


    12/08/08
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    + "SETSKIN" skin command, "SETSKIN;skinpath", will set new skinpath, and perform a "RELOADSKIN"
    + "SETVOL;MASTER;xx" special param added, will set master volume control level 0 - 100, ex. "SETVOL;MASTER;50"
    + Weather graphics .png files are now accepted, falls back to .gif files
    -Thanks

    Sun, Come shine my way
    May healing waters bury all my pain
    Wind, Carry me home
    The fabric of reality is tearing apart
    The piece of me that died
    Will return To live again

    Wow, just read the entire changelog, looks like you have added some features that are well thought out and have been needed in RR for awhile! The plugin handling sounds so much simpler now. Thanks again for the hard work and dedication to the RR project Mitch!

    Is there prevention against the same plugin being loaded from two or more different locations.

    ie if it has already been loaded from the plugins folder, is it prevented from being loaded via the menu.skin and the skins/plugin folder?

    The fact that you can't spell elves, kind of justifies my question.

    Very very good

    Will the "ONCOMMANDINVALID" set a lable with that invalid command in it so you can have a menu pop-up with that lable?

    Code:
    You could do stuff like
    "ONCOMMANDINVALID","SETVARBYCODE;DATE;DATE||SETVARBYCODE;TIME;TIME||SETVARBYCODE;RRSCREEN;RRSCREEN||SETVARBYCODE;INVALIDCOMMAND;INVALIDCOMMAND||ADDTOFILE;$SKINPATH$INVALIDCOMMAND.txt;= $DATE$ $TIME$ $RRSCREEN$ $INVALIDCOMMAND$ ||PLAYSOUND;$SKINPATH$Beep.wav"

    Also would be nice to have a indicator for plugins that are running.
    BYIND;PLUGIN;Movie;=NO<<=YES"

    That's really the responsibility of the plugin creator to do that...I have adapted that new std on my released plugins execpt RRMedia which will be done the its next update..

    Ya you can do that with the invalid cmd, as its just a custom event that is fired..
