(in other words: we've already implemented .TGA support for v2.2. We are NOT doing .DDS support, however. You can write a plugin to handle it though, as 2.2 will support file format plugins)

They just don't want to take away the fun you'd have creating it yourself...

But seriously, I'm sure there are other things that are more critical to a functioning app come v2.2 than a built-in .dds file format plug-in. They gave you the ability to create and distribute your own. If that's the format you want, create a .dll. If you can't, and it's widely used, someone else will undoubtedly create one you can download.

Yeah it's not that we don't want to support DDS files. It's just that we only have so much time and a whole slew of features with varying priorities. DDS was on the list at one point but didn't make the cut. I did investigate this file format a couple months back (someone else requested it on the old forum), but discovered it would either require a lot of code or linking to various DirectX-related DLL's.
