    On SMF, an add-on can be uploaded entirely in its zip file. The software takes care of rest [unpackaging,directory destination,etc..] No further user interaction is required especially FTP access.

    Would be nice to have this on XF. Understood if it needs to be geared towards v2.0 at this point, but it is a good feature.

    Whether an add-on is a simple XML upload or a not-so-simple server upload is more up to the add-on developers than XenForo.

    Unless I'm missing something isn't there always manual unzipping, uploading, directory matching involved?

    Generally yes the process is the same.

    I think this has been suggested before.

    Out of interest, what do you mean by directory matching?

    I meant when you open up the zip and then find the matching directory in FTP to upload to.
