Thanks to all the beta-testers:
The language translators:
Benjamin999 – Dutch translation
Here is the shell, I hope you enjoy!!
Xplora 2 is written to be as dinamical as possible,
so any language can be added easily but I need a traslator
for this work so if anyone want’s to add a language just reply.
As soon as I complete the project beta I’ll send you the english language file.
Here is the current available languages:
I’ll constantly update this thread with new screens,
anyway I’ll post only a few of the all new Xplora 2 extra features.
P.S: ( Something is probably gonna change…)
The new music player
The all new plugins manager
The new UMD Dumper
And finally the new Xplora 2 user interface
It’s a long time since my last visit, anyway I’ll be synthetic.
After a long time I’m here to release a new version of Xplora,
here is some notes and the download link.
Release date: 02/01/2009
Compatibility: 4.01 M33 and highter
In this release I’ve improved all the old things and the base engine.
The Text Editor is not now completed and will be probably modified in the next release.
The new Homebrew Sorter works fine, but have two problems.
There’s a bug in one function that I use to open ISO\CSO files,
it’s a M33 function, so I cannot fix it.
In the last CF ( 5.00 M33-4) one of these problems was fixed up,
anyway for the unpatched cfw I’ve added an alternative patch to make Homebrew Sorter working…
The second problem doesn’t unmount the last ISO\CSO mounted,
so when you exit the Homebrew Sorterm, you can find in the UMD Disc device a ISO\CSO,
and not the real UMD one.
