RetroFE 0.8.18
« on: July 12, 2018, 09:35:15 PM »
It's been a while since we had an official release, so I've put 0.8.18 on the download page. You can find the list of changes here.

Some important updates:
- Updated SDL2 to the latest version to fix several graphical glitches on Windows.
- Added support for monitor ratio in the layout names; you can now use layout 4x3.xml, layout 16x9.xml, etc., and RetroFE will select the one that fits your monitor ratio.
- Added animation types for menu jumps and playlist changes.
- Added support for the latest truRIP superdat format and directory structure. Keep an eye out for their future releases.

Unfortunately the key configuration menu is still WIP, but I hope to get that up and running soon. After that I'll add the possibility to launch scripts from the menu, change other settings like theme, and add a search function. I've dropped a few other projects I was working on so I could spend some more time on RetroFE in the near future. :)

Thanks for your hard work making retrofe better and better.

Could you explain what we could do by launching scripts from the menu? Some examples please

Well, one user wants to use it to switch bezel types from glass to noglass, and similar options.

True, but you can do that already. You don't need the config menu for that
