VDR maintenance patch 1.4.1-5 is now available at

     ftp://ftp.cadsoft.de/vdr/Developer/vdr-1.4.1-5.diff

This is a 'diff' against version 1.4.1-4 (which is the official
version 1.4.1, patched with
ftp://ftp.cadsoft.de/vdr/Developer/vdr-1.4.1-1.diff,
ftp://ftp.cadsoft.de/vdr/Developer/vdr-1.4.1-2.diff,
ftp://ftp.cadsoft.de/vdr/Developer/vdr-1.4.1-3.diff and
ftp://ftp.cadsoft.de/vdr/Developer/vdr-1.4.1-4.diff).


Small fixes to the officially released VDR versions will be first
made available as "maintenance patches" in the Developer directory,
so that they can be reviewed and tested before a new official
release is published.

So please apply the above patch and report whether it works (or
if it causes any new problems).

Originally I wanted to release an official 1.4.2 today, but then
a few things came up that I also wanted to go into the new version.
Now hopefully this version will prove stable and can be officially
released next sunday ;-)

The changes since version 1.4.1-4:

- Replaced the "quick workaround for additional live audio PIDs" in
   cDvbDevice::SetChannelDevice() with an actual solution in
   cDvbDevice::SetAudioTrackDevice() in order to prevent sticky PIDs in CAMs,
   which caused long switching times or completely blank screens when switching
   between encrypted channels on the same transponder (reported by Tomas Berglund).
- Adapted cThread::ThreadId() to recent kernels (thanks to Ville Skyttä).
- Added --remove-destination to the 'cp' command for binaries in the Makefile to
   avoid a crash in case a new version is installed on a running system (suggested
   by Petri Hintukainen).
- Fixed handling "Ca Info" in case the CAM sends this again if the smart card is
   replaced with a different one.

Have fun!

Klaus
