  1. (Done, now present in 1.31) Internal search system (search file names and file contents, edit the text files directly from the kitchen or launch an external editor)
  2. Automatic localization (support for folder variables in initflashfiles.dat/app.dat to create entries valid for all languages (Done, now present in 1.31), using those variables during import to make ROM translation easier, automatic generation of new OEM_Lang_XXXX folders with a corrected initflashfiles.dat and renamed MUIs as soon as a compatible SYS is added, automatic fixing of all the packages' initflashfiles entries to match the new languages start menus, automatic package To CAB conversion to test all your packages on the phone (Done, now present in 1.32))
  3. (Done, now present in 1.32) Total integrity check (checking the validity of every REG file and app.dat file, checking for broken module folders, checking for invalid SYS/OEM/EXT packages to reduce the hard to track ROM building issues to minimum)
  4. Advanced file attribute management (setting the ROM file attributes according to the DSM file, adding an interface in dialog properties to change the DSM file list and applying file attributes automatically to the files that are not present in the DSM file list)
  5. Internal ProvXML engine (much more accurate CAB to EXT conversion, provxml to REG and APP.DAT conversion)
  6. Batch ROM import (adding long paths (up to 32000 characters) support to oskitchen to allow using the kitchen from any folder no matter where and adding a new internal tool that takes a folder of multilanguage ROMs of similar versions and builds a final Sources folder with all the localized files merged to start working on multilanguage ROMs much more easily)
  7. EXT2 Package Replacement (an EXT format replacement that supports MNGE modules (no more module folders around) and folders with conditional names (for resolution, language, device, windows mobile builds, etc.) to make multidevice packages much easier))
  8. Advanced ROM versioning (allow setting the version in the splash screen and in the RUU)
  9. (Done, now present in 1.31) Manila management support (deleting unneeded localized manila files while building, adding a whitelist-based manila files compression to improve manila speed and free space on the ROM)
  10. Improved UPX support (adding a file cache to remove the delays caused by the UPX compression during cooking process, switching UPX file selection to opt-in, UPXing all the files according to an online whitelist that can be updated/submitted from the kitchen)
  11. Kitchen distribution tools (generating a XML file to allow changing the kitchen titlebar/about/help entries, to automatically load a selected device profile and to add an additional customizable tools menu, adding a "Temporary OS.NB" shrinking tool and a SYS cleanup tool to delete unneeded resolutions and languages)

I think you should include something to make different ROM Builds in one shot, to make all the .nbh files just by pushing the cook button once. (like a MaxSense version, CHT Version, Plain Version etc..) Also, an autimated compression + upload feature would be nice, too.

Can it turn on my coffee maker in the morning as well?

I voted for deployment tools since I like control but would have also voted for integrity.

This seems like a better place to add other simple requests rather than in the kitchen thread here is a simple one

Add the full version number to "Help About".

I have 3 versions running and am current naming the folder to keep up with it.

if wish a possibility to select back for easy folder structure (old kitchen). the separation for language, sys-versions, oem-versions ... is not realy nessassary (for me) and the overview of cooking would better.

integrating emulator/simulator for testing cooked rom.

you make very good job.

Having recently moved form EVK to osK, the one thing I REALLY miss is the internal search...being able to search within files for a keyword...and being able to double click the file to open it from the kitchen...made tweaking sooooooo much easier.

+1. I also miss that feature the most after making the shift to osK. Great job Air!

hello,
i confirm with you. i use totalcommander and pspad for more comfort.
totalcommander is good for listing all files from kitchen-root (without directories) with sorting by filetypes and pspad for searching by keywords.
