This is a milestone in the path to allow non-MMF2AOs to be listed in the MMF2AO Manager. With other words, all extensions rather than just extensions in the convenient MMF2AO installer format. Of course, non-MMF2AOs will just bring up the author's website when you click "View", but that's the author's choice.
So the big new thing in this particular version is the DB Maker. I did not like the previous centralized approaches by websites similar to what this project is all about. An important aspect of this project, I feel, is that anyone can release their objects in the MMF2AO format, and that anyone can release databases for the Manager.
I do not want to be the dictator of which extensions get loving, and which do not. <img src="/center/images/graemlins/wink.gif" alt="" />
Anyone can now use the DateBase Maker tool (Select "Distributer->B Maker" in the Manager) to make and edit their own database of MMF2AOs, and then distribute that to others. For users, opening such an .mmf2aoDB file will look just like opening the AddOn Manager directly, except the "Available Add-Ons" will be populated from the opened .mmf2aodb instead of the default Puchisoft-maintained database.
So authors of lots of add-ons/extensions could, for example, give out a .mmf2aodb file in addition to just directly linking to the .mmf2ao files. That way users can download all the author's extensions via the Manager, even before they are added to the Puchisoft database.
