the public skins tab shows way more information than the installed skins tab including screenshots which i find really awesome.
Yes, the public skins have a screenshot, which is not the case of the skins that you create or modify.
I think that the installed skins tab could be rendered unnecessary if you had a installed/uninstalled skins filter or filter shortcut button
As soon as a skin is installed, it can't have a screenshot, because maybe the user has modified it. It's impossible to check if a skin has been modified or not, because it's impossible to know if an image has been replaced by another.
txt, ipodnotes, raw xml, raw json
ipodnotes support will be dropped in a few days. It'll be only txt, xml and json.
A similar window could be used to display supported export formats and web templates
Like I said, I don't have a clear idea about those next stages. First, I open the box. Second, I look what's inside
