-===== TODO =====+===== Screenshots =====
  
-  * make use of statusbar to display mountpoint and space-left/overall space of HiMD +Linux/Fedora Rawhide screenshot as of 02.06.2010:
-  * show bitrate and group-information in treeview (group information needs libhimd support) +
-  * group HiMD-groups in treeview (needs libhimd support) +
-  * write help-file (alternatively use Qt's "Whats this ?") +
-  * <del>implement MP3-upload</del> +
-  * <del>implement PCM-upload</del> <del>(NOTE: PCM-Upload is not supported for strong-encrypted PCMs yet, i.enon MZ-RH1, output files lack WAV-header)</del> +
-  * <del>use libsox to convert raw PCM into WAV-format</del> +
-  * implement MP3-download (needs libhimd support) +
-  * implement PCM-download (needs libhimd support) +
-  * implement ATRAC3-upload/download (not sure whether feasible) +
-  * later versions should employ folder-browser for filesystem for upload/download (similar to SonicStage) +
-  * allow drag and drop for download of files +
-  * should detect connected HiMD-Walkman automatically (platform dependant) +
-  * run upload/download in extra threads, use Qt multithreading; display progress in status-bar +
-  * display MAC/Key in tracks list or alternatively "EncryptedYes / No" +
-  * show status-window after download: 4 tracks(s) successully uploaded. 2 tracks(s) could not be uploaded: 2, 8. +
-  * export tracklist to text-files (HTML or XML for example) +
-  * remember last (upload-)directory +
-  * use platform-indepent SCSI-library for: +
-      * reading discid (countercheck with mclist0x.hma-file) +
-      * formatting HiMD -> already successfully performed on Linux (see himdformat.c) +
-      * get/set date/time and display in statusbar +
-      * allow/prevent medium-removal (lock MD during transfer) +
-      * use DRM Read/Write future OpenMG-compatible transfer for ATRAC3 (?) +
-  * bugs: +
-      * does not check any error-codes from libhimd +
-      * <del>default directory for upload/connect should be system-indepent; hardwiring "/home" is not a good idea for a Windows port (unless Qt somewhat matches /home to a different directory in Windows)</del> (Qt is smart enough to do that for us) +
-      * <del>connect-button should check whether the chosen directory containts a HMDHIFI.IND file in the root directory to verify the selected folder contains actually HiMD-data</del> +
-      * all buttons except "Connect" should be disabled unless a HiMD has been selected with "Connect"+

 +===== About Dialog =====
 +
 +The about dialog could need some sprucing-up. Comparing to the one of pidgin, which has a good design standard, our dialog looks quite boring and somewhat inconsistent. Also, the information within it doesn't need to be translated.
 +
 +The new dialog should contain:
 +
 +  * all people listed in [[Contributors]], sorted by their contribution
 +  * contact information (IRC channel, mail addresses, mailing list URL, website, ...)
 +  * version information of the current build from git
 +
 +The following screenshot compares the about dialog from QHiMDTransfer with the one from the current version of pidgin:
