Going from INI Files to XML Files
« on: December 08, 2008, 11:36:23 AM »
So another big step forward for IceChat 9, will be that the settings files will be converted from INI files, which are outdated and have issues (goes back to windows 3.x) to the newer and more favourable XML files.

IceChat 9 will not drop support for INI files for Scripts, but will add a couple of functions so that scripters can use XML files as well.

As of today, we have successfully converted IceChat.ini and Servers.ini to XML files, and have noticed a small performance increase, which is fantastic.

Because of this, I will also be converting the language files over to XML files. This should also make it much easier to create and update them.
