Hello.

What's happening here? Why an alpha version? Why an 8 version?


Well this release is a sort of milestone for SyMenu.

Since the SyMenu first version the only requirement for the host PC was to have the .NET framework 2.0 or higher installed.
This version has been heavily rewritten to implement the new .NET 6 framework that allows to include in the SyMenu package the entire framework. This way SyMenu can be executed with no prerequisites at all because all the needed libraries are already included.

This means full portability for SyMenu.


There are two cons with this approach.
1) The program size has increased a lot. This version weighs almost 70MB while the stable version weighs only 4MB.
2) The modern .NET frameworks abandoned the support for the oldest Windows OS (bye bye XP and Vista). The oldest supported OS is Win 7 SP1 and SyMenu will be forced to do the same.

PLEASE BE CAREFUL
Alpha version means danger.

I can't assure, at this point of development, SyMenu is fully working, nor that your configuration files will be preserved with the next version, I can't assure the automatic update will be able to update this version in the future... So please don't use this version as your main one. Any help for testing will be welcome but don't do stupid things with it.


Enjoy.
