Hidden features

In versioncheck versions prior to cpg1.5.x it has been comparatively hard to update the version information when a new package was going to be released, as the packager had to go through all changes manually. In cpg1.5.x (revision 3977 and later), the packager can simply add the parameter ?output=create to the URL to force the script loop through the existing entries and update the version / revision / MD5 hashes. You only have to copy the output of the screen and paste it into include/cpg15x.files.xml

Another "hidden" feature is the option to embedd the output into another coppermine-driven page to allow an initial check to be performed during first install.
