Cleanup for NV Updater 0.6.5.0

For a long time there was nothing more to read here, I have currently quite little time for the project here as a whole. Since NV Updater also largely does what it should, I'm also just not so in the compulsion to do something. Nevertheless I have a little news about the upcoming version :).


NV Updater 0.6.5.0 is currently being tested and will probably be released in 3-4 weeks, here is an overview of the upcoming changes:


New

  • Optimized url handling code for version online check (faster and clean)
  • Deleted useless code parts (hotfix check, json structure, old code parts)
  • Rewrite of the Psid/Pfid detection with xml of the nvidia api (database is useless now)


Lib Updates

  • HtmlAgilityPack from 1.11.32 to 1.11.40
  • 7Zip(a) from 19.00 to 21.07

Removed

  • JSON Lib
  • SQLite Lib
  • SQLInterop Lib
  • SQLite card database


So I was a little bit busy, 0.6.5.0 is a kind of "clean" version with the additional feature of API detection. The project has grown and grown and so parts of the code are not really pretty anymore. Until more features come (e.g. Quartz which is on the list for 0.7.0.0), there will be smaller updates with improved code. Also I'm thinking about moving all the API code for graphics card detection to a separate library and rebuild it.


So see you soon and stay healthy ;)
