We are looking to have only one default 4:3 and one 16:9 skin for the next release of MediaPortal (0.3.0).
Why are we doing this you may ask... well two reasons actually.
- Because we wish to reduce the size of future releases.
- For 0.3.0 we plan to have a plugin & skin updater inside MediaPortal to allow you to easily add new features and designs without searching the web page or the forums right from your couch with your remote at your fingertips.
So with this in mind we need you to choose the default skins which will be included in the forthcoming releases.
To facilitate this decision making process we'll run a poll starting next week for a 4:3 skin and the week thereafter a 16:9 poll.
The skinner must be committed to working on this skin up until and beyond the 0.3.0 release. If not already the winning skinner/designer will gain SVN access to implement the updates as required.
What will you win? ...well a default skin in MediaPortal of course ;-)
Note: A 'working' or 'near working' skin should be submitted which should be 0.2.0 compatible. We do not wish to receive concepts and artwork. No disrespect is intended to existing skins or skinners in this news item in any regard.
Many thanks and good luck.
