Difference: BackgroundWPS (r4 vs. r3)
(This page is because some info needs to get written to be copied into the manual... and to get themes using it until then...)
The idea behind this feature is to pretty up the statusbar... it lets you display anything from the WPS in an area outside of the rest of the UI. This will be put in (if accepted...) after FS#8799 which lets you choose where to place the UI (menus/lists/etc) in the screen (so it could be centered with a margin, or only the top half or whatever.) This addition will then put the WPS in the rest of the screen.
firstly, this will be controlled by a .cfg-only (i.e hidden) setting in the themes config file, and it will default to off (minimal work for existing themes). Themes will need to do the following:
Other than that I cant think of anything that needs to be mentinoed.. All wps tags should work (note work, except to self, there might be an issue when the track changes while in background mode.... <- BUGGER, yep it is broken...) peak bars probably will look crap if used because the update rate drops to 1/4s (or so)
save and finish later
