    Wouldn't YOU like to know?
    Sorry, false alarm. I took Moonlight's statement in the original e-mail quite literally, but after a little more elaboration I finally understood what was going on.

    Check this post, it'll clear things up.

    This is why I rarely ever start a topic [​IMG]

    I was going to sit down and do a proper translation of the Moonshell 2 user guide when I realized that the change log is only updated through Beta 12, the last beta version before it went "stable." I was wondering why the change logs for v2.01~v2.05 had not been released, so I e-mailed Moonlight and asked if I could get an updated change log.

    This was the reply I got.
    I guess that explains why there's no changelog after Beta 12.

    If anyone remembers the M3 Sakura-Moonlight fiasco that happened last January, Moonlight announced that s/he would stop developing homebrew. Then not too long afterward, work on Moonshell 2 picked up again and everyone was happy about Moonlight's return.

    As it turns out, Moonlight has had nothing to do with Moonshell 2 for quite some time. I knew that Moonlight stopped working with M3 Sakura, but I did not know that s/he had also quit the Moonshell 2 project permanently. I guess Moonlight was serious about it back in January.

    So my question is, who is developing Moonshell 2 now? I'm guessing it might be M3 Sakura. It's implied in the e-mail since Moonlight stopped developing Moonshell in order to cut off all ties with Sakura. I sent another e-mail, so I'm hoping Moonlight will reply soon.

    All this time I thought Moonlight had returned to the scene to work on Moonshell. Was I the only one who thought this? I apologize in advance if this isn't news to anyone else. I've been out of the loop, so much going on in real life.

    Well I knew something was weird with all of the updates after when he said he will no longer develop for the DS.

    I know Moonlight created Moonshell (as does everyone else), but I'm wondering who's behind the release of the stable versions 2.01~2.05.

    So why would Moonlight tell me that he stopped developing Moonshell?

    Mbmax, is there any chance that we could have a Moonshell 2 change log updated through v2.05?

    Wow. Could be very hard to find all fixes done in every version.
    I know some of them. Also Supercarte could provide some information about this.
    I ask him in PM. [​IMG]

    I got thrown off because of that one statement about not developing Moonshell anymore because of the betrayal by Sakura.

    Really sorry about the false alarm, everyone [​IMG] If this makes up for anything, click here for the full e-mail. Moonlight mentions some of the changes made between v2.01~v2.05. Between this e-mail and the link Mbmax provided, I think I can come up with a complete, up-to-date change log in English.

    At least something good came out of this thread [​IMG]
