it will be called by XBMC before shutting down.

aim is to replace xbmc.abortRequested and have xbmc.Monitor notify the script once XBMC wants us to shutdown instead of checking for xbmc.abortRequested in a while loop.

xbmc.abortRequested is still in but if we are doing API bump and are braking addons in future, it might be a good idea to remove it.

seems rather limited to not use some handle. now it can only be used to kill all scripts...


amet commented Jun 9, 2012

would you want to be able to pass addon ID or addon instance? and if nothing is passed in, we kill all?


ghost commented Jun 27, 2012

looks fine. next step would be to use the new stuff in the core but that we can punt for later

This merge breaks shutdown procedure. XBMC.exe can't exit. Last strings in log:

04:42:40 T:8816 NOTICE: StorageServer-1.0.0 Closed down
04:42:44 T:14376 ERROR: XBPyThread::stop - script didn't stop in proper time - lets kill it

Yes, I confirm. I had to remove the common plugin cache script to work around this issue.
EDIT: I'm using Windows 7


Karlson2k commented Jul 5, 2012

In any case it's not OK.
@wsoltys, @amet, will someone fix or revert it?


otzy007 commented Jul 5, 2012

On Slackware Linux also XBMC doesn't quit after this PR


amet commented Jul 5, 2012

@Karlson2k patience please.... otherwise submit the patch


Karlson2k commented Jul 5, 2012

@amet, no problem.
I'm working on other patches. :)
