Plugin Reorganization Summary


With last release we reorganized the Xojo plugins a little bit.

First, we renamed a few plugins

Plugin PartRenamed to
CocoaMacCocoa
CocoaBaseMacBase
CocoaControlsMacControls
CocoaExtrasMacExtras
MacOSXCFMacCF
MacOSXCGMacCG
LionMacCloud
MacMacClassic

This makes it more clear that all those plugins are for Mac.

Second, we removed QuickTime and QTKit plugin parts, as Apple deprecated them years ago and Xojo dropped support for QuickTime long ago.


Third, we merged some plugin into others:

Plugin PartMoved to
CanonEOSDigitalCameras
NikonCameraCameras
CUPSTools
DirectShowWin
GIFImages
JPEGImages
LargeImageImages
LCMSImages
TIFFImages
PNGImages
ImageMagickGraphicsMagick
LeopardMacFrameworks
MarkDownTools
MountainLionMacFrameworks
OCRImages
PHPTools
RegExTools
SnowLeopardMacFrameworks
TAPIWin
TidyTools
TWAINPicture
WinDragDropWin
WinICMWin

This reduced the number of plugins a lot.

We moved few parts to new plugins, e.g. CoreAnimation and ImageKit classes. This way we reduced the dependencies between plugins.

In general the reorganization was well received and no class was missing even as we removed 5% of the plugin parts.
