all I can offer you is to help you with upgrading your libraries. The files
HACKING and README should give you a good overview of what you need. If you
have problems, ask.
So you are working on plug-in preview. Did you consider to resurrect the
code or at least the idea of a generic preview suitable to be used by all
(or most) plug-ins? I think now is a good time to add such a feature since
almost all plug-ins would benefit a lot from having a preview and it does
IMO not make sense to duplicate the same code all over the place. The code
I'm speaking about can be found at
