* tschak909 doesn't think it's fair that only a handful of people get to see the code before the rest of us...but....

i'm hoping that this sort of exclusive trend doesn't continue.

support for existing .iso files has been added (ie ones you rip outside lmce) having just discussed it with one of the devs
Good enough for me  8)

Make sure you are using the '-s' flag when you do the ln. It shouldn't be using hardly any extra disk space for the link then.

uhm...

hard links take up less space than soft links, they use the same inodes!

a symbolic link takes up a teeny bit of space, because it's an indirect pointer.

Changelog?

Is there going to be a ChangeLog with the 0710 release, indicating some of these features like the SQL technique for adding filetypes by extension (and which types are supported that way), and the other new features we've heard hinted, as well as the usual bugfix itemization?

See my post earlier in this thread... under lmce-0710 .iso will be a supported file type for playback so you will not need to make symbolic links.

...0710 is getting closer... but is still at least 7 days away.

am sooo looking forward to 0710, great to hear it could be as little as 7 days away,

heheheheheheehe the danger of 'leaking' a release date. And intentionally misunderstanding a post  ;D

oppss, did I misundersand what Andrew was saying about the release date? anyway, take your time guys, I understand its ready when its ready, I am just excited by the fact it can;t be too far away now, fingers crossed :)
Actually, what I think Hagen was talking about was your converting totallymaxed's "at least 7 days" into "as little as 7 days". Which is correct to the letter of totallymaxed's statement, but is rather naively optimistic about the spirit.

Though I do like the idea that we're talking about "close to a week", rather than "close to a month", though there's no way (for anyone) to tell the difference until it's over. Especially since a 2-week duration puts the release sometime around "the weekend right before Christmas", which probably equals "mid January".

Indeed, sorry, it was not my intention to actually point the finger, just merely remembering the early days of WWIIonline when CRS early learned to utter the word 'soon'TM instead of giving any hints whatsoever about an actual release date  ;D because the very next post (not yours) would then have it be less than seven days, and then it suddenly became 'tomorrow' and all rejoiced... eh... not.

Sorry
