PlayerPRO Player 1.0.1

PlayerPRO Player 1.0.1 has been released. This is mainly a bug fix with the following outstanding issues addressed:
PlayerPRO Player no longer crashes when you drag and drop outside files into the music list.
The plug-in info pane, as well as any other string that has customized localization values, should now work correctly.

Too long…

It's been too long since a news post. Yes, stuff has been happening. We have moved from SVN to Git, PlayerPROCore 6 is in a fairly stable state for tracker playback, and PlayerPRO Player, which is only a playback app, has been released.

I'm currently in the process of creating an Objective-C wrapper for the PlayerPRO data types called PlayerPROKit.

PlayerPROCore 6.0 has the struct MADDriverRec's data types hidden by default to help dissuade people from accessing it directly, mainly because the size may change due to a change of preprocessor definitions: this is mainly for the benefit of the eventual Linux/UNIX port.

import/export plugs working

After a lot of work, the import/export plug-in architecture for Mac OS X is up and working. As it stands, the plug-ins have a .ppimpexp extension and can be accessed from /Library/Application Support/PlayerPRO/Plugins as well as ~/Library/Application Support/PlayerPRO/Plugins . It will also look for them in the application's PlugIns directory. Note, however, that some plug-ins don't correctly byteswap data, so check in PowerPC mode (Rosetta) before saying that Plug-in X doesn't work ( I am aware that AMF might have this issue).

PlayerPRO code up in svn!

There is now code up in the SVN repository! The code is still in Beta, and plug-ins still don't work. Also, there seems to be some rendering issues with the buttons that needs to be fixed.

Also, sorry for the multiple SVN commits; this is my first time writing to an SVN Repository, and I should have had the directory structure cleaned up a little.

PlayerPRO resurrection

I have activated the PlayerPRO sourceforge site and restored the VersionTracker page:

The site now hosts the app and the source code:

I am also going to upload a few older files.
