Version 7.10 - Released May 26, 2017

- New Feature: Plugins are now supported in LaunchBox and Big Box! If you're a developer, see documentation here: http://pluginapi.launchbox-app.com

- Improvement: LaunchBox and Big Box updates are now downloaded automatically in the background so you don't have to wait for them; this can be disabled under Options > General > Updates in LaunchBox

- Improvement: CRC checks are now used to eliminate duplicate images when downloading from the LaunchBox Games Database or EmuMovies on imports and metadata/media updates

- Improvement: The Clean Up Images option from the Tools menu in LaunchBox has been modified to also remove duplicate images

- Improvement: the Clean Up Images option from the Tools menu in LaunchBox has been tweaked to add a Cancel button and use all cores on your system in order to vastly improve performance

- Improvement: Massive startup performance increases for both LaunchBox and Big Box; in some cases it is now well over twice as fast; used multi-threading and other strategies

- Improvement: Significant performance increases when selecting platform categories in Big Box

- Fixed: Titles are no longer duplicated into the Version field when importing games that don't have a Version

Great release, I shaved 2.5GB off my images folder and transitions between platform categories, platforms, playlists, and general navigation is much smoother than before.

Also, Big Box boots in 6 seconds with a collection of over 9,000 games ?

Just updated and launchbox freezes every time. Bigbox works though.

Edit: Nvrmnd, after 3 forced program closes, it finally works now.

Edit2: for background updates, does the notification/confirmation box still show in bigbox so that we will know that an update is about to be downloaded?

It downloads the update with out asking in the background of LB/BB without notification or confirmation then it asks for a confirmation to install after the download has already happened. I'm not sure if it also applies to BB but I'm thinking it will. I have a PC I have to update so I'll test real quick.
