I am pretty much the only guy who works with this stuff
I don't really care about the process
The process doesn't really care about you.
, I just want the details on what was broken, what is fixed, what changed and what I will need to update.
Current mapinfo.lua works with master (0.82.3-1742-ge7c93ab). So I don't see something that is generally broken, so no need for updates. Without further information I assume fixes for counter cases or code refactoring.
Before there were 2 mapinfo.lua's one in the basedir (loaded by the ArchiveScanner) and a 2nd in maphelper/ (used by MapInfo). So the first contained archive related data and the other one startpos, lighting, ... But having 2 files with the same name is extremely confusing and a source of new bugs. So I decided to drop the maphelper one and to move everything to the basedir one. But for backward compatibility it still checks the maphelper one if the basedir one doesn't exists, so as long as your map didn't had a basedir one yet everything is fine. And because it seems Forb is the first one who wanted to play with map dependencies, no map should be broken. For ppl who want to make usage of it before 0.83 should just create the basedir one and a redirection lua in the maphelper (for an example how to do that, wait for my example map container).
So because I did a few changes to the sound system I wanted to make available via the mapinfo.lua. I already had the wish to write a clean implementation of mapinfo/mapoptions all mappers can use in the future. So you just have to put in your smf+smt, edit the default configs and fine is. I will create a new thread for it when it's ready.
