WARNING:
========

This is a *developer* version. Even though *I* use it in my productive
environment. I strongly recommend that you only use it under controlled
conditions and for testing and debugging.

Approaching version 2.0.0:
==========================

If all goes well, there will be just one more developer version after
this one, and then it's going to be version 2.0.0.


The changes since version 1.7.38:

- Updated the Finnish OSD texts (thanks to Rolf Ahrenberg).
- Updated the Polish OSD texts (thanks to Marek Nazarko).
- Modified handling user inactivity in the shutdown handler to avoid a problem in case
   the system time is changed after VDR has been started (thanks to Udo Richter, reported
   by Sören Moch).
- Updated the Czech OSD texts (thanks to Ales Jurik).
- Changed the template for PLGCFG to $(CONFDIR)/plugins.mk (thanks to Ville Skyttä).
- Updated the Swedish OSD texts (thanks to Richard Lithvall).
- Now clearing device bondings for devices that don't provide DVB-S in the Setup/LNB
   menu (reported by Juergen Lock).
- Fixed a possible deadlock in handling the tuners of bonded devices (thanks to
   Juergen Lock).
- Improved working around the broken driver values for SNR in case of a "TT-budget
   S2-3200" receiving DVB-S2.
- The demos in the "osddemo" plugin can now also be ended with the "Back" key.
- Fixed flashing OSD in "high level OSD" mode of the TT S2-6400 in case a menu is open
   while subtitles are being displayed.
- Fixed stuttering or asynchronous audio after changing the audio track. This is done
   by doing a "jump" to the current position, which clears all buffers. However, this
   only works with TS recordings. With PES recordings it causes a segfault - haven't
   been able to figure out why.
- Added a manual page for 'svdrpsend' (thanks to Tobias Grimm).
- Fixed immediately disappearing subtitle track menu in "high level OSD" mode of the
   TT S2-6400 when selecting "No subtitles".
- Updated the French OSD texts (thanks to Bernard Jaulin).
- Updated the Dutch OSD texts (thanks to Carel Willemse).
- Removed all "fuzzy" translations from the files ar.po, hu_HU.po and sr_SR.po, because
   more often than not they are just wrong.
- Now calling DeviceClear() in cTransfer::Receive() if the output device blocks, instead
   of not retrying for 10 seconds (reported by Andreas Mair, with help from Oliver Endriss).
- Updated the Spanish OSD texts (thanks to Luca Olivetti).
- Updated the Hungarian language texts (thanks to István Füley).
- Changed the calls to Skins.QueueMessage() in vdr.c that are related to reporting the
   status of the editing process back to Skins.Message() in order to have them appear
   immediately.
- When sorting recordings by name, folders are now always at the top of the list.
- Updated the Russian OSD texts (thanks to Oleg Roitburd).

Have fun!
