the plugin would need to access skin.xml.
any more effort in this is probably wasted, but if BBB wants to add it cool.

Bram77 Wrote:how can I add version control to skins, to allow automatic update checking?You have to be careful if a feature like that is added as some skins only work this the very latest XBMC SVN builds so should not be updated is the unless the the XBMC version they use is compatible, and other skins might have broken with the latest XBMC SVN builds and instead only work with a specific point release of XBMC.

I understand. I'll add the functionality only to the skins that work with the latest SVN versions and that I have tested. Thanks for the tip!
I'm always running the latest builds, so I won't test with the previous stable builds. I'll clarify that on the googlecode page.
b.t.w... The same goes for some plugins...does it not?

for addons is checks the __XBMC_Revision__ doc tag for min compatibility, could your skin.xml contain that or something simlair ?
- Nuka1195 - 2009-06-27 17:21
something like this.
really BBB if you going to put the effort in. maybe plugins/scripts should have a default.xml with the required info. the only reason i suggest. is it may be faster especially when some default.py are large.

Hi Nuka1195 / BigBellyBilly,
The download link in the first post is not working anymore:
can you please change that or make the zip available again (now there is .rar archive)
- BigBellyBilly - 2009-07-05 14:42
fixed. Its back up as a the usual zip

BBB do you think you could make the installer possibly display updated plugins at the TOP of the list when I go in there to do an update check, instead of the bottom? I'm always curious to know what has been updated when I do an "update all", it would be nice to not have to scroll to the bottom of the list...

The list is sorted using Genre, which contains the label2, which contain COLOR cmds. The hex color determines the sort, rather than the name, but the side effect is to group them (which is what we wanted).
Change the Genre sort order (descending to Ascending) and xbmc should remember the view.
I'm not aware of a way to force the sort to be asc or desc, but it might be nice to be able to set it.
