Subject: Probable changes coming to the skin engine (skin format)

Probable changes coming to the skin engine (skin format)

From: Jonathan Gordon <>

Quick heads up to the changes which are probably coming to the skin
format to make everything easier.

1) tags with parameter lists will change to use '(' and ')' to mark
the ends of the list. e.g %V(label|x|y|width|height|font|fg|bg)
2) tags will no longer be able to add info to the end (E.g %Xda will
be changed to %Xd(a), %D1 to %D(1) )

This will break all existing skins so I'm planning on making a script
to convert, but while this is happening, does anyone have any changes
they want made which cant be done without breaking compatibility? (e.g
change the tag letters or something?)
