Hi highend,

some more ideas for 1.x releases (nice-to-haves/candy stuff/simple wishes)

- the tray icon might also indicate wether XY is up-to-date or a non-installed update is waiting (for instance, arrow color orange -> green)
- pre-/post-update actions (script hooks). Don't know about wether it's easy to do, but my pre use case would be to backup <xyhome>\data.
- a little log recording the actual update history could be implemented (YAUM.log, e.g."YAUM updlogger <date>: updated to +MM#.mm#.build#, updated from -MM#.mm#.build#)

Code: Select all

YAUM updlogger 2016-06-25 20:52:24: updated to +16.90.0314, from -16.90.0313

Nothing too complicated. Although a post script hook will ofc require YAUM to start XY afterwards.
But regarding portability of this: Relative paths will have YAUM's directory as their base...

False positives, unfortnately very normal for compiled .ahk scripts...

Another one: Keep max. archive(s) could be raised to 100.

3 new values in beta v0.82:
50, 100, No limit

I will add your other requests before I push a new version though :)

Thanks. I call the NaN "NoLimit" the Marco number. :lol:

Rest is in (logging + tray icon status). What about pre / post scripts?

Is it really necessary to use .xys files (and XYplorer) to execute them?

Because:
- What if XY isn't even running when YAUM installs an update?
-> Start XY with a script seems to be a bit counterproductive

Post scripts:
- What if YAUM isn't configured to restart XY?
-> Counterproductive to start XY with a script in that case...

I tend to support *.bat | *.exe files instead...

Simple backup tasks can be done through .bat files as well and the whole thing
would be completely unrelated to XY. For more complicated things people
could use .exes (e.g. compiled .ahk scripts)... E.g. in my case I sometimes
have a stale XYplorer running in the background or the .chm help file open.
Things I can easily kill with a few lines of .ahk code.

Opinions?

@highend:
congrats for the work. I'm curious: how do you close gracefully XY? You send a keystroke or the proper WM message?

I use a few functions to see what YAUM is able to close (mostly depending on if XY is elevated, YAUM is not, etc.). After all I send a WM_CLOSE message to it's window.
