- As of next month's security releases, the main update pack will be scaled back to contain only the publicly available MS hotfixes along with a select few request-only fixes (such as KB888111).
- Doing the above should make the CAT file issues completely disappear, since this will substantially cut down the number of hotfixes included.
- I will no longer be concerning myself with the vast majority of the request-only hotfixes. It takes a lot of time to adequately maintain such a setup, and quite simply, real life takes priority over it.
- I'm still planning on maintaining the WMP10 addon pack and some form of addons packs.
Siginet has already begun writing up a guide for how to create an addon pack which works with the integrator. I'll try to lend some help in getting that written to make the transition as smooth as possible.
I understand some of you won't like the scaling back of the main pack, but I'm convinced it's the best course of action for the long term for both myself and my schedule and for the majority of the users.
