  1. Universal CRT support

    Hi.

    Now that a new public build is out of the way I'd like to sneak in a feature request for a future one. :)

    It sounds like Microsoft is actually trying to address the issue of CRT runtime changes with each Visual Studio iteration.

    At the same time, Visual Studio 2013, and the associated runtime, is starting to show its age, losing out on C++14 and now C++17 features introduced in the more recent editions, as well as a whole host of open source libraries built on these new capabilities. Naturally any code striving to be portable is held…

    • Win32 Toolbar icon with context-sensitive menu

      Create functionality that allows us to have a context menu on a application's toolbar/taskbar icon to include a context-sensitive menu created in app. This would be great for apps that are frequently minimized.

      • Windowless Support

        For Desktop applications, allow an option for window mode to be windowless, for developing of widgets and other smaller screen applications

        • Implement io.popen to get values back from shell

          os.execute lets us run shell commands which is really useful for desktop applications. However you can not read the output of these applications from the command line. io.popen would fix that and make life even easier

          • OS X Desktop Notifications

            It would be really helpful if we could send push notifications to an OSX Desktop app in the same way we can for iOS and Android.

            In particular it'd be really good to be able to put an 'unread messages' red notification badge on the app icon in the Mac taskbar.

            Happy to fund a plugin developer on this if that is possible, though I understand it may need changes in the Corona core before this can happen.

            • Add desktop base directories

              It would be really helpful if we had access to other directories for quick access to assets located outside our container on desktop apps.

              For example, i am developing an editor, in which users can choose their own images to texture their levels. However, currently there is no easy way to load any image into Corona outside of our project.

              The proposed solution:
              Add a system.RootDirectory or system.AbsoluteDirectory constant to be able to load images/assets from any place, using the absolute path.

              As an additional feature, folders like the user folder, global temporary folder and many others could be added…
