Version History

From MTG Studio

Jump to: navigation, search

This page contains details on the changes in MTG Studio from one version to another and an indicative roadmap for 2016.

Roadmap for 2017

  1. add missing sets and cards
    1. retrofit lots of missing promotional cards
  2. implement "Check for Card Pool Update" feature. It will allow you to update the card database without the need to wait for the whole EXE+DB update. Usually I update the database every 2-3 weeks but the program releases are more rare. This leads to the effect of new sets delays
  3. answer some forum threads which demand replies
  4. answer some email chains which demand replies
  5. consider a feature "Interim Sets" where MTGS users can add cards in an CSV file (with Excel) for example and those can be used as interim solution until MTGS gets its next database update
  6. implement Repository. Repository will be a single file which will contain all user's:
    • decks
    • collections (can be more than one)
    • notes
    • imported prices
    • configuration
  7. having support for Repository will allow the 3 top requested features to be supported
    1. Ability to have multiple collection files [254 votes]
    2. Collection report with prices [214 votes]
    3. Collection automatically tracks quantities used up in decks [199 votes]

Please note that this roadmap is indicative but not carved in stone. There will be plenty of new features and supported sets which are not listed on thee roadmap but will also be added during the months.
