What name could future XnView to use?

Post by budz45 » Sun Jan 06, 2013 11:43 pm

Hello,

As XnViewMP approaches version 1.0 and therfore out of beta stage I think XnViewMP name should drop the "MP" and use something more name impacting. We already know that XnView since the beginning is 'multi platform'.

These are names I that I suggest could be cool:
XnView next , XnView pro , XnView ultra , XnView plus

....I quite like the sound of "XnView plus" :P

Also a new name gives it stronger distinction away from the legacy 'classic' version.

I think this topic might have been discussed before. Just an idea not request.

Nice topic. Let me add my 2 cents:

XnView next, but what will follow next? XnView next next?
XnView pro, sounds like there is a basic version but this is not 100% correct.
XnView ultra, hmmm dunno......
XnView plus, dunno too.

How about ( I am just throwing these in, I don´t know yet if I like them)

XnView 2013
XnView 13
XnView2
XnView.next
XnView.pro
Maybe name it after the main colour of the icon: XnView Orange

Please don't hijack user's topics with your requests. A Linux version will come same as always.

This topic is not a request by me for a change of the application's name; it is a topic just showing an idea. An "Idea" and a "Request" are not the exact same. Yes the current "XnViewMP" name is fine but was just thinking of ideas. Thanks.

What I liked about this…
… was the superscripted “MP” (XnView^MP).

In my opinion, just name it XnView 2.x, replaces the old 1.9x

Great idea :) so it would be like 'passing the torch' from one era of XnView to a new era of XnView.

So XnViewMP final version could become "XnView v2.1".....After the final XnView classic version 2.0. Excellent.

I remember Pierre saying somewhere that XnView classic would reach v2.0 and then cease development to migrate development on the MP versions....Or perhaps I misread.

Nice, but too similar to "MP"

So you will continue development on the standard version after 2.0? Will there be no end for the standard version? :) ...Would be a lot of work for you. I thought XnViewMP was the future.

I thought that the the standard version would get to 2.0 or 2.xx and then stop.

MpView, MPview
Get the bugs fixed, THEN start adding features. It sucks, but someone has to do it.
