Current development status / QMC2 included in ZXMameCD

It’s been a long time without any news… but that doesn’t mean the development of QMC2 has stopped – it’s the opposite :)!

There have been a lot of updates to the SVN development tree in the meantime. Apart from the usual bug fixes and minor enhancements, QMC2 now also supports Qt 4.3 (pre-release at the time of this writing). The build system has been improved to accomplish the use of distribution-supplied Qt libraries more easily than before, and the look and feel of some GUI elements has been improved as well.

It’s not yet finished, though, because there are some items on the todo-list which need to be completed first (new features). Additional to the changes so far, 0.1.b10 will include new dialogs to check sound-samples, preview- and flyer-images. The current way of checking previews is crap and definitely needs some polishment… you will also be able to check the state of ROMs individually when 0.1.b10 is ready. It will probably also include support for game icons (MAMU’s icons for example).

Stay tuned (and/or use the SVN codebase :)!

On another story, I just recently recognized that QMC2 0.1.b9 is included in ZXMameCD 0.45 (a MAME live CD project)! That’s great news. QMC2 appears to gain some momentum in the community. Thanks!
