xbmc.gui bump to 3.0.1 - pecinko - 2012-03-25

Ronie, JM

we would need GUI bump

<import addon="xbmc.gui" version="3.0.1"/>

Have requested the committer to bump the API.

@pecinko: xbmc.gui bumped to 3.0.1 with backwards-compatibility to 3.00

OK so I'm confused ? anyone care to explain a little history to this statement


RE: xbmc.gui bump to 3.0.1 - Jezz_X - 2012-03-26

right never mind its all about the pinned topic and changes for the next version rather than somthing broke with a new feature and needed a backwards compatibility check


RE: xbmc.gui bump to 3.0.1 - jmarshall - 2012-03-26

Yup - API was bumped so the skin that depends on the feature will be able to specify they want 3.0.1 and thus won't be installable on Eden.

(IMO this feature by itself isn't useful enough for a skinner to bother doing that - it won't cause issues if they use it and the infolabels aren't there).

We'll try and keep bumping the API in this way so that skinners should always have a version they can rely on.

Cheers,
Jonathan

Although this is technically true, installing such skin in Eden would lead to user ending up with half of screen empty (e.g. season posters used instead of episode thumbs) causing avalanche of support questions and assumptions that either skin or xbmc is buggy.
