Hi all
Some quick news on what's going on.
I'm working on refactoring the romcenter source code to prepare migration to .net core. This mean extracting all windows specific codes like dialogs or disks accesses from the various library.
At the same time, I'm migrating db engine to v3.
This work is done on the 4.0 branch, which means it will be available for all windows platforms starting from xp.

Branch 4.1 will then be updated to a modern windows framework and be compiled in 64b.
Keep sending bugs report, they will also be fixed :super: .

Hi Eric,

From what i've understood from blogs and articles out there (not from first-hand experience though), Core 3.0 is still not perfect. 3.1 is to be released in a few days/weeks but i'm not so sure it will be as ready as .NET 4.8. I've read that the UI designers are not yet as good and stable as in classic .NET...

In any case, preparing to move to Core is a nice touch, hopefully when you do decide to move, Core will be more stable. Also, it would be interesting to see how it goes on Linux...
