Hello,

the softdevice team (Torgeir Veimo, Martin Wache and me, Stefan Lucke)
is pleased to announce a new release of vdr's softdevice plugin.

General info:
  Softdevice plugin enables vdr to run on your desktop with
  so called budget cards. You'll get vdr output via framebuffer or X11-Xv or
  DirectFB or vidix to your screen. Decoding is done via ffmpeg.

Supported vdr versions: 1.4.x, 1.5.x and 1.6.x

Plugin's homepage is located at: http://softdevice.berlios.de/

   - applied patch from Matthias Schwarzott for compile issues with

               - a small stripe remains on the right side, when video changed
                 from 16:9 to 4:3
               - only modified OSD was shown when deinterlacer was toggled
                 on/off.
2007-05-10:
   - use libswscale if available.
   - remove left over code from the old video-fb.

     by the old video-fb.
   - adapt MacVdrClient.c to the setupStore in shared memory.
   - remove softlog from setupStore. Pointers aren't valid in a shared memory
     block.
   - remove private variable setupStore from audio out methods. They can
     access the global variable.
   - move setupStore into a shared memory block. This allows ShmClient to
     have acces to the setupStore.
   - move CatchRemoteKey() into utils.c, else setup-softdevice.o would
     have to be linked into libsoftdevice-xv.so and -dfb.so
2007-04-12:
   - ShmClient: revertet previous change, as it breaks argument style
                of softdevice.
   - configure: fix typo (yaepg),
                rm .dependencies in case of changes,
                new opt: --disable-xinerama (by Matthias Schwarzott)
   - fix osdMode not initialized (by Matthias Schwarzott)
   - ShmClient: full screen start option (by Matthias Schwarzott)
