The issue with the whatsnew entries isn't the length (ok, it *is* to an extent), it's that in the GBA case it's the ONLY user documentation for that feature. I am fucking not going to remember 2 years from now when someone asks how to change the light level in Boktai that you need to look that up in the 0.175 whatsnew, and neither are any of you. We need to get per-system documentation going on the website pronto and start including this sort of thing there.

As it has been already clarified elsewhere, it was never intended to be the *ONLY* user documentation.
It is like that so far just because Firehawke is still working on the general documentation and I don't want to interfere in any way in his great job.

Once he's done or he declares the time has come for multi-contributor handling, I will make sure that the info is added also in the per-system documentation.

In that case, can we at least start writing this stuff up over at mess.org so the information isn't lost? I'd love to write up a brain-dump on the Apple II drivers as well.

Can we please keep the personal insults off of release announcement threads that people will be Googling? Cheers smile

What about also utilizing the mamedev forums for article based progress or having a centralized based developer blog (if possible) instead of individual Dev sites that are all completely different.

I really enjoy reading the thought process behind the actual progress as shown in examples like Time is ticking out... and Jamming

It'll come, dunno about when. RSS + custom scrapers and we can funnel dev blogs into mamedev.org blog, for instance. Plus (ever hopeful) people posting to mamedev.org blog, and that might be the all-in-one destination (CC'd to Facebook, Twitter, etc.)

Thank you! No one should read that they are a cunt for answering in a cordial manner, I just think this should be done before it became so big. I will be happy if this kind of guideline begins to be used more frequently, as I said, this kind of free harassment is toxic to the community.
