    You may have noticed something new in the skin today pulsing in the top left hand corner of the skin. This is our Skin Update notification which is new in v1.2.0. Thanks to the hard work done by Trevor to make it possible.

    When you see the Update Notification in top left and/or see an 'Update Available' image on startup, patch(s) is available to download and install:

    [​IMG]

    Follow these steps to find out information about the patch(s) and apply to your system:

    Step 1: Select Settings from BasicHome GUI:

    [​IMG]

    Step 2: Enter Settings and Select 'Skin':

    [​IMG]

    Step 3: Select and Enter Skin Update:

    [​IMG]

    Step 4: Read the Change Log, click on the Spin Down/Up buttons to scroll. Click on the 'Update and Install' button to apply patch:

    [​IMG]

    If you choose to 'Download and Install', you should see a GUI Progress Dialog displaying the current status of the download and installation process. If the patch requires mediaportal to be shutdown before applying patch, then it will be restarted upon successful completion.

    [​IMG]

    Upon successful completion of the patch installation, you should see a completion dialog prompt. Click OK and your done.

    Note: this dialog is not displayed if the patch requires MediaPortal to shutdown and restart.

    We will continue to improve this process as the skin evolves and would appreciate any feedback you have.

    The update notification and ability to download and install skin updates while running MP is very nice; It's very well done! I really appreciate the work that you guys do for this skin and everything else you do for the MP community. Thank you for the great work :)

    Hi ltfearme

    Great functionality and it seems to work for all others. Anyway on both of my installations the update out of MP does not work and I get dump starting the update out of the configuration. It seems that a library is missing. Maybe it happens because I have not installed MP with the default path.

    Can you have a look at the logs?

    Re: AW: StreamedMP Patches

    Hi Ponyriemen, the update system in its current state allows you to apply simple patches from the GUI without restarting. What I mean by simple is just xml updates and new images.

    We are continuing to improve the process, which will allow you to do almost everything which can include:

    * plugin updates e.g. StreamedMP Config, Editor
    * translations
    * Full Major Upgrades between versions
    * Edit BasicHome

    Even though some of these will require a restart of MediaPortal, we are working a way to make it so you the *user* dont need to get your keyboard out and run a setup and restart mediaportal etc.

    Before all this is possible there will probably be atleast a few Full Upgrade Installs that must be ran manually. We are also working on Upgrade only setup so that you dont need to download a 90MB file if you are just upgrading from the previous version....this will come in handy when upgrading from GUI (saves you waiting for a longer download).

    Hi hirscho, for some reason you dont have a required dependency to the update system installed. This being:

    Code (Text):
    1.  
    2. ICSharpCode.SharpZipLib.dll
    3.  
    Looking at the Installer code, I noticed I only install this file if you select TV-Series in the feature select dialog. Im guessing you didnt?

    Anyway, its bug...because I should be installing that file with or without tvseries now as we need it for the update system. I will address this in the next release.

    In the mean time, extract the attached dll to your mediaportal.exe binary directory.
