[REQ] QoL Improvements to Update & Addons [#18433 #14042]

Post by Andre_H »

Hello everyone,
  • When installing update .2510, I found again that all of the (standard) add-ons that I previously de-installed are reinstalled after the update. Can we have an option that at least asks for this in advance, and if not wanted, then not reinstalling those (de-installed) standard add-ons?
    (I don't see this so much as a bug, more as a quality of life improvement.)
  • Also: we can search for updates within the addons list, but not filter that view to "only those with updates available", at the moment we have to scroll down the complete list to see, what updates are found.
- MMW 5.0.2.2510 (non-portable, shared DB & files) on Windows 2016 # only essential addons # my 24/7 media server
- MMW 5.0.2.2510 (non-portable, shared DB & files) on Windows 10 # playing, testing skins & addons # my desktop app
- various MMW 5.xx (portable, local DB & a few media files) on Windows 10 & 11 # ripping CDs, testing new builds in alpha state, trying some scripting things
- MMA Pro (latest build) on Android 10 Phone and Android 11 Tab # WiFi Sync # playing

As for re-installign de-installed addons, you probably mean the bundled core addons created by Ventis ?

As for having "Update available" filter, added the request as https://www.ventismedia.com/mantis/view.php?id=18433

All of the supplied skins and sample scripts in the first place, and jepp, they are from Ventis. I have freed my MediaMonkey "server" from everything that I don't need and where I thought deleting it as unproblematic, but I have to do it again after every update.
