MKV Chapterizer weekend release postponed
I had planned to release MKV Chapterizer 2.3 this coming weekend since I was nearly done with the new features/modifications, but I have decided to postpone it by one or two weeks.
While I was coding, I realized that adding feature after feature to the program, just above everything else, wouldn’t work out well for the user. I realized how messy the program is now and how messy it is gonna get. So therefore I have decided to change the arrangement of the program a little. It will no longer be a mode called “Queue mode”, nor a mode called “Single mode”. The new titles will be “Advanced” and “Simple” mode. It makes much more sense to the end-user and makes it easier to understand how to use the program without a manual. The simple mode will work nearly exactly like the current “Single” mode, except that the feature “Generate chapter file” will be stripped and moved to the Advanced mode. In other words: you will be able to drop a file, chapterize it, and re/de -chapterize it.
The rest of the features will rest in the Advanced mode. Things such as generating chapter files, batch chapterizing and the new feature, extract chapter files (in your own defined format), are what I call advanced features compared to the other, basic ones. The cons of this move? Well to generate a chapter file/extract some chapters, will now require about 4-5 clicks instead of a drop and a click (depending on how you count). Though I think most of you will use these features in batch anyway, so no big loss.
If you have any comments, or criticism about the changes, you are welcome to write them in the comments 🙂
