Development of QMC2 0.2 started

Those of you who followed the development of QMC2 0.1 will probably continue to use the SVN revisions of the 0.2 series, whose development has just been started.

Be aware though that some of the new design goals have impact on the requirements: Qt 4.2 will no longer be supported, Qt 4.3+ is needed now! And as it has already been planned for a while, XMAME support has now been dropped – the project is inactive since MAME 0.106 and no one appears to be still using it, so it’s no longer worth the hassle.

See the current todo-list from SVN for more information.

Have fun,

QMC2 0.1 final released

After nearly two years of hard work we are proud to release QMC 0.1 final to the public!

Apart from the usual bug-fixes and improvements, the following important features were added since 0.1.b11 (last development release):

  • XML gamelist data cache to speed up loading of -listxml output from MAME
  • Removal of obsolete samples & image files through external tools (rm, zip)
  • Added Home, End & Esc to the list of remappable GUI control keys
  • Improved about dialog with a new QMC2 logo and a system-information summary screen

See change-log for more information.

Thanks to all who helped making this possible – especially to those mentioned in the credits!
