READ FIRST: How to request new features.
« on: April 13, 2010, 12:23:18 am »
Here are a few rules for posting feature requests which will help us greatly.

Topic Title
The topic title should indicate the gist of the request. A short but clear topic title will ensure your request is not overlooked and easier to reference/find.
  • Good Example: Add multi-zone audio support to System Media Player Driver
  • Bad Example: I have an idea
Post One Request Per Topic
When posting more than one unrelated feature request be sure to create a separate topic for each request.  Discussions often follow a request and it can be confusing when there are more than one request in a single topic. This will also make it easier to create more accurate topic titles (see above).

Fully Explain
It's important to explain the feature you want fully and carefully to avoid confusion and misinterpretations. If your request is not trivial then please explain how you envision the feature working and fitting into the software. It isn't your job to design the software but for us to do our job we need to fully understand the request.

Examples
Examples can be extremely helpful after explaining your request.

Collaborate
Feel free to comment on other users requests. The best way to get your request added is if it is accepted by a majority of the community and it is clearly defined with a good discussion.

Priorities
Please understand that if we indicate that your request will not make it into the next version it does not mean that is will not be added in a future version. We have a long list of requests and we are constantly updating our priority list.

Thank you for your cooperation.
