But that version=1.00 didn't meant the version of the lang file format? :roll:
If not it's there since first release :lol:

version=1.00 was firstly intended for version of language file, and not the version of BS.Player.

We added another item (BS.Player version), so the two won't be mixed:

BS.Player version=2.16
Language version=1.00


;)

Assumably the language version will stay at 1.00 for each subsequent build. So what is the added value; why use it? Or may it really be expected that there will be more language versions for the same build (and probably by the same translator)?

I have considered this matter a little bit in reverse. I have the lang file at version 1.20 and it's suited for BSPlayer version 2.16.945

I intend it in the following scenario:
As for oooooold versions of BSplayer, the language file format was different from the actual one, same goes for skinning. This tag will help BSplayer to know with which format it has to communicate..
For example I use the version tag in my skinmaker to know if a skin can be edited in my skin maker or not (basically if >=v1 is not recognised it will be converted from v0.8x in v1 format, unfortunally :roll: the new skinning method still has v1 tag :lol: so my program can distinguish between v0.8x and v1 skins, but not between v1 and v2 :P )

I decided to split the original thread as the discussion hereabove was/is - in fact - off topic in that thread.

This - to me - seems in fact exactly the same imperfection as the fact that the languagefile still mentions version=1.00 in its heading. And it further strengthens me in my being convinced that these identical "version=1.00" remarks, which in as fas as I remember were indeed introduced with version 1.0 of BSPlayer, have always been intended to indicate BSPlayer's (main) version number (which was simply forgotten at the time that the v2. player was introduced). It doesn't make any real sence to me to use separate version numbers for a language file (without any linkage or reference to the BSPlayer build for which it is suited). This as opposed to version numbers for skins, where it is much more likely that there are more (improved) versions of skins for the same major version of BSPlayer. This however should (could) imho be indicated at "[text]" at the bottom of the skin's ini file, so that it is also easily visible when the skin is used.

P.S.:
Just checked and concluded that quite a few translators indeed use "version=..." in their language file in the same way as I also use it: i.e. to indicate the version/build of BSPlayer for which the translation was made (which imho seems the logical option).
This - by the way - includes BST for English-version 214.942:
[BSPlayer.lang]
version=2.14
Author=BST
