Hi,

I'm pleased to announce a the maintenance release 0.8.1. You can
find it on my homepage as usual:

Excerpt from HISTORY:

2008-01-01: Version 0.8.1

- Updated documentation mentioning binary and devel packages
  for xine-lib-1.2, so compiling xine can be ommited for some
  distributions.
- Updated INSTALL regarding XINE VDR VERSION MISMATCH.
- The xine-lib.patch for xine-lib-1.1.x nolonger contains any
  FFmpeg fixes for H.264 decoding. It is recommended to install
  a recent FFmpeg and to add --with-external-ffmpeg when
  configuring xine-lib.
- Contributed some xine-lib options for H.264 decoding.
- Adopted name and files changes of vdr plugin in xine.
- Updated it_IT.po and xineI18n.h (thanks to VDR Italian for
  providing the translations).
- Implemented makefile switch VDR_XINE_VERIFY_BITMAP_DIRTY to
  turn off dirty bitmap verification and hence safing calls to
  memcpy() and memcmp() for OSD operations.
- Removed TCP_NODELAY for the video stream socket to reduce
  network load.
- Fixed OSD scaling for HD subtitles. The scaler nolonger
  allocates a fixed size buffer for a 720x576 OSD but guesses
  typical maximum OSD sizes, i. e. 720x576, 1280x720, 1920x1080.

Enjoy.

Bye.
