special feature with v1.3.6

split Rutabaga-options.xsl in 2 files :
- Rutabaga-options.xsl for all skin options
- Rutabaga-translation for all language translation (allow user to set his own translations word without modifying the skin parameter.


add parental control and allow user to set parental words with 4 parameters in skin-options.xsl

<!-- Index Option #12: allow user to set his own certification value: false = default , true = custom  by user -->
<xsl:variable name="user-certification">false</xsl:variable>

<!-- Index Option #13: if user-certification is true, set the youngest certification word to use;  will be apply from age 0 to Age in childs-age-youngest-->
<xsl:variable name="youngest-certification">youngest</xsl:variable>

<!-- Index Option #14: if user-certification is true, set the middle certification word to use;  will be apply from age in childs-age-youngest to Age  in childs-age-middle-->
<xsl:variable name="middle-certification">middle</xsl:variable>

<!-- Index Option #15: if user-certification is true, set the oldest certification word to use;  will be apply from age in childs-age-middle to Age in childs-age-oldest-->
<xsl:variable name="oldest-certification">oldest</xsl:variable>

<!-- Index Option #16: if user-certification is true, set the parent certification word to use;  will be apply from age in childs-age-oldest to all Age -->
<xsl:variable name="parent-certification">parent</xsl:variable>


special enhance with v1.3.3 and 1.3.4:

adding certification icon display with skin_Detail=2

certification icon could be adjusted according to your country by overwriting the icon under Jukebox/pictures/detail/movie/certification/  with those
found in the country folder under pictures/detail/movie/certification/COUNTRY_FOLDER


adding auto mode with
<xsl:variable name="T_space_BeetweenPoster">auto</xsl:variable>
<xsl:variable name="T_space_BeetweenBanner">auto</xsl:variable>

will automatically calculate the better space beetween poster or banner to display the largest poster that can support the screen, according with the number of poster per page and per line. 


the code of  index page has been completly reviewed to clean and adjust all the page of the skin with to the parameters in rutabaga-options, a lot of them weren't up today and part of the screen scrolled out of the TV.

warning with the watched feature:

this release as been modified to accept pchtrakt support , but the pchtrakt part is still in developpment , so to automatically flag the movie as watched it's already needed to hit the watched flag on the detail screen or press 99 on the remote. The update of the index page need pchtrakt program to be achieve (this is not the case already).


3 enhances :

- add 2 parameters - T_space_BeetweenPoster and T_space_BeetweenBanner
which allow to adjust the space beetween each thumb or banner. Everyone could play with, according with the skinIndex choosen and the number of poster displayed on the index page (line and rows), for banner and for poster independently

the main consequence of theses 2 parameters is :
- it's no longer needed to adjust the size of the thumb in depending of the number of poster per line and rows in the page,
- according with legion455 works (thanks to him) the thumbnails are generated, within the yamj run, with the best outside look, much more cleaner, better definition, contrast, light and color enhanced. (i was stonish by this difference),
- posters and banners are automatically resized and theses values will allow to take the maximum of place in the screen
- the new code calculate, according with the space beetween poster, the largest size possible for the poster itself, for width (number of poster per line) and height (number of rows) and try to preserve the proportion setted by

the 3rd modifications is within
- now only one thumb width and thumb heigh is needed, these values (as i told just before) are now setted to take care of the initial proportion of thumb downloaded from the net 600 x 800 (0,75)

- i had calculate and tested the T_space_BeetweenPoster value which are the best one depending of skinIndex/column/row and added as comments inside the file (of course this value need to be setted in rutabaga-options)
- i modified the overlays icons to fit with the new thumb dimension

to RUN with the maximum of efficency thumbnailoverwrite, banneroverwrite, posteroverwrite, htmloverwrite should be setted as true.
