New Development Snapshot 0.45.2 for Megamek, MegaMekLab, and MekHQ
Hi Everyone,
Next release in this development cycle.  It's been a couple of months since our last releases and we've got a lot of stuff in this one. So friendly reminder, there will likely be bugs under the hood here.  The biggest additions in this release are addition of TRO style summary and Protomek construction.

TRO Style Summary
For years we've had people tell us one of the biggest issues they have with MegaMekLab is it's inability to give good outputs.  So we've launched a new summary and TRO tab.  We've got a new template library to format unit stats in the official TRO format. The primary motivation for this was to make a more complete unit summary available for exporting unit designs from MML in plain text.

Each unit type has both an HTML and a plain text template. The HTML template is used to add an alternate unit display in the unit selector dialog:

We've also expanded the fluff fields and show them in the TRO tab. In MegaMekLab there is a new tab for editing fluff. It still has a couple things left to do.  Here is an example of what the display looks like with the fluff filled in:

Looking ahead plans include adding support for assigning manufacturers and models for individual pieces of mounted equipment and an option to integrate it with factory data in MekHQ. With a template library in place a rework of the BV and cost summaries is also in order.

In addition to the TRO Style summary, we've some of the missing Protomek equipment (Melee weapon, Quad melee system, Fusillade, and Magnetic clamps). Princess continues to go to flight school, with the ability to handle aerospace units with non-advanced flight rules. We also have fixes for the force generator, Zweihander SPA, tons of new sprites, and added the ability to have system wide equipment

In addition to the Protomek construction there are lots of bug fixes. Protomek completions allows us to start planning the Support Vee construction in the new year.

Lots of bug fixes and some new stuff.  We've added the Tech SPA, Planet-Based Acquisition, improvements to awards, and more historical data.  Looking down the road we've got improvements to scenario generation coming, canon generated data for all systems in all eras.

Also a reminder to drop into the Slack channel to meet other players and harass the devs that drop in and out.  

As a reminder when moving between versions:
1)   Make backups of your campaigns and customs.
2)   Always treat each release as a stand alone release and only copy your data forward from older versions.

There is a good chance you’ll have issues in MekHQ with unit name changes.  If you get errors loading your campaign as result of unit name errors please see this post.

Is there a particular reason these last two builds haven't been posted on the main website? ProtoMechs are a pretty big deal in my opinion.
