**** changelog 0.48.3 **** 

 Enabled game ripper ( start on dvd-icon => backup ). Atm it only puts it in f:\games, so be aware of the current limitations 
 Fixed boot a lot
 Fixed boostmode infoscreen so it doesn't interfere with menu ( but menu acts somewhat slower )
 Rewrote parts of autoupdater for smarter updates
 Fixed internet skinselector so it doesn't "blank" the list when returning from servers with many skins
 Fixed some other stuff, but too tired to remember.
 - merry xmas!

**** changelog 0.48.2 **** 

 Added a simple skinning system and run-time switching of skins.
 Created a system concerning bootproofing. 
 ftp boost : fixed flags on created files, making some games not work properly in some unique cases. (moto gp comes to mind)
 boot : Fixed Quick Launch bug that was introduced in 0.48
 boot : Added persistant display boot for the feel of it
 boot : Added extra logic to avoid possible freezes during boot
 boot : Added code to fix videomode if last boot didn't manage to init monitor.  Defaults to NTSC since it's viewable in all systems
 boot : Added a boot-log on screen so possible errors during boot will reveal themselves, hold LEFT TRIGGER to slow down for studies
 Finally enabled the 'Edit XBE Title...' in the games menu
 iso9660 : fixed some size issues
 UI : Added possibillity to switch skins
 UI : Added preview and selector for skins ( click once for preview - twice to select and use ) - might need reboot to change already loaded pictures and fonts
 UI : Added possibillity to download skins with preview ( once = preview - twice to download / install )
 UI : Changed default background to skin background ( background.png in hardware info and such )
 Core : Hardware info no longer crashes
 launch : launches pretty much 100% now
 reboot : fixed, boots always as far as tested
 fonts : Cleaned fonts a bit
 Sound : Added IP telephone using XBOX LIVE kit.  Uncompressed only atm, so it pulls 16kb/s both ways max, and uses port 698. Peer 2 peer only atm.
 fan : Set a max heat tolerance that will make it speed up the fan if it's getting overheated  ( 60 C on mcpx and 68 on CPU );
 Fonts : Caching fonts to z:\ due to that fonts are being locked while in use - so it doesn't lock them where they might be needed
 music : Added Stop functionallity on "LEFT TRIGGER + LEFT THUMB"

**** changelog 0.48 **** 

Added "during boot" safety feature : left thumb = boots d:\default.xbe without doing anything else ( not even init of screen )
Added "during boot" safety feature : left thumb + right thumb = writes backup of EEPROM to the EEPROM ( stored in Avalaunch's "savegame" )
Added "during boot" safety feature : autocreates backup of EEPROM in savegame if none is found - made for use with both thumbs on boot, but can also be used with config magic and such
********* WARNING : Safety features wont work if eeprom is busted and harddrive is locked !

APOD : skips pic of today if it's GIF  ( duh, was a gif on releaseday )
Network : Added "Download" section, and put in QWIX there for now. 
updater : Fixed a auto-launch problem of the up
Core : busted our asses a little to locate a EVOX BIOS fault in the latest releases, had to ditch some features in order to make M7 "cooperate"
Implemented the 'properties' menu choice for the games/apps in the menu. Press Start to bring up the menu
network setup : DHCP will now request IP more... properly ( doesn't require TP cable to be inserted at boot anymore )
core : Fixed DVD problems regarding reading non-9660 cd/dvd's, affected both filemanager and ftp-server
shoutcast : fixed a major crashbug
shoutcast : added a server-list reader that looks in /shoutcast for .sc files ( containing single or several http:or shoutcast:links )
Located a hard-to-find http bug that occured only after many hours of intense data-transfers
did some fixes to iso9660 so it could be opensourced to XBMP/XBMC people.
Added the ability to specify which ports to use for passive transfers in the XML file
Internal nickname : some xboxes has no nickname, added local IP for that part
FTP-server : added 9660 support
Extended the override icons setting to look for icon files that has the same name as the .xbe. E.g. football.xbe will look for avalaunch_icon.png, avalaunch_icon.jpg, football.png and then football.jpg
Added ability to set fan speed in the XML file
Enabled the dusty fanspeed-code, and set a safisfying setting to avoid fried chipsets
shoutcast : Made it read /shoutcast dir for .sc files in xbmp style. Location should be added to xml.
Trashed old XML parser, wrote a new one
Added ability to specify whether or not to load random APOD's and to display APOD explanation or not to the XML file
Finished APOD, involving browsing through archives randomly and showing explanations
Core : *FINALLY* completed the BFM loader, need someone to make a UI or something for this - sidenote, seems to not work on many xboxes, please give feedback
Added auto detection of multi game DVD's and displays a menu with list of games when you press 'A' on the DVD icon
Added to possibility to specify whether or not switch video mode using the controller should be allowed

Added the possibility to specify whether or not to mount the F and G drives in the XML file
Added some more logic the IR-remote implementation to hopefully avoid the 'multiple key presses'
Core : fixed the system memleak we've had since the very beginning - not recorded any loss over 1 hour testing
Fixed delete folder to work on CesarFTP FTP servers
Controller button 'B' now changes to parent folder in the file manager (was button 'Y'; but other team members can be very persuasive thx to big baseball bats)
Fixed bug that could cause some XBoxes with large F drives to freeze on boot
Added shoutcast support for internet radios
Added some more logic to prevent freezing when launching while APOD/rss feeds are downloading

FTP client : Uses SITE DELTREE command when delete folder is chosen and remote server is Avalaunch
FTP client : Switched to asynchronous file io to make transfers go faster
FTP client : Added implementation of BOOST mode support
FTP client : Automatically shows all Avalaunch servers on the local network (if they are set up to be shared) -> no more typing IPs and logins  :)
FTP server : Added BOOST mode, both upload and download for _maximum_ transferspeeds (10-11mb/s upload). For now only Avalaunch and Qwix clients can use boostmode, but protocol will be opened for those who wants
FTP server : Fixed internal cache a LOT for noticeably faster transfer speeds
FTP server : Added additional checks for 'FreeRootSpace' when CWD command is encountered. Not all FTP clients does PWD after CWD to check what the real folder is
