addon file packages
Every addon could be only one file, that is a package (packed with tar and gzip or something...) which contains also meta information (in xml). This file will be read automatically by miranda and install all the corresponding files in the correct subdirectories. That would be very useful and more user-friendly.

If the addon developer would create that package, the upload process would be very easily for him because all data could be read from the xml file. Also a "package wizard" could be written for that.

ToDo
  • "who" (addon developer or addon side) will pack the package with these information?
  • Someone needs to implement this in miranda
  • Would be nice, if theme plugins would also use that format for smileys, themes, skins... who would do that?
  • a lot of more?! :)
