ApollOS - Modelines.txt No Longer Supported?

I have looked at the source code on github to find out why modelines.txt is no longer being parsed, it is hard to pinpoint though, since R6 version of ApollOS does not state which git revision it is built from.

Am I correct in assuming that modelines.txt are no longer being parsed for user added resolutions in ApollOS?

I am running ApollOS R6 Turrican on V1200 with the latest RC core.

100% correct.

The supported resolutions are those listed on our SAGA chipset documentation :

I understand the need for a restricted range of supported resolutions, keyword here being "supported".

I guess I need to add my custom resolution directly to arch/m68k-amiga/hidd/sagagfx/sagagfx_hiddclass.c then.

Please consider reintroducing the user defined modes when ApollOS gets more mature.
