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.


The changes since version 2.1.5:

- Revoked "Fixed some compiler warnings with Clang 3.4.1" from ci.c, because this
   did not compile with older versions of gcc (thanks to Sören Moch).
- Fixed keeping the current position in the Recordings menu if a recording was
   deleted in a sub folder.
- Fixed handling transfer mode on full featured DVB cards for encrypted channels
   that have no audio pid (reported by Christian Winkler).
- Fixed a possible endless loop in cH264Parser::GetGolombUe(), which caused recordings
   on some HD channels to get stuck and resulted in buffer overflows.
- Fixed handling PAT packets when detecting frames, so that they can be properly
   taken into account when regenerating the index of a recording.
- Fixed adding new source types in case they are already registered (reported by Rolf
   Ahrenberg).
- Removed an unnecessary assignment from cMenuRecordings::~cMenuRecordings().
- The Recordings menu now remembers the last recording the cursor was positioned on,
   independent of the last replayed recording. When a replay ends, however, the cursor
   will initially be positioned to the last replayed recording again when the menu
   is opened.
- Updated the Finnish OSD texts (thanks to Antti Hartikainen).
- Fixed drawing the live indicator in the LCARS skin in case there are no devices.
- When checking for obsolete channels, those with an RID that is not 0 are now
   ignored (suggested by Oliver Endriss).
- The SDT is now only parsed *after* the NIT has been read, and it explicitly uses
   the source value derived from the NIT. This should prevent new channels from being
   created with the wrong source.
- Added a log message in case a receiver is detached from its device because the
   assigned CAM can't decrypt the channel.
- Refactored setup parameter handling for output devices:
   + The function cDevice::GetVideoSystem() has been deprecated and will be removed
     in a future version. In order to check whether a particular plugin needs to be
     modified if this function is removed, you can comment out the line
     #define DEPRECATED_VIDEOSYSTEM
     in device.h.
   + Handling the "video (display) format" (things like 16:9, 4:3, pan&scan, letterbox
     etc) shall now be done by the individual output devices, because the types and
     numbers of parameters are too device specific. The Setup/DVB parameters
     "Video format" and "Video display format" are still there for now and can be used
     by SD devices. HD devices, however, shall not use these parameters (any more),
     but rather implement their own setup menu with the necessary parameters for
     controlling output.
   + The dvbhdffdevice plugin has been modified accordingly.
   + Made it clear that cDevice::SetDigitalAudioDevice() merely tells the output device
     that the current audio track is Dolby Digital. This function was only used by the
     original "full featured" DVB cards - do not use it for new developments!
     If an output device has several ways of replaying audio (like HDMI or analog jack)
     it shall implement the proper options in its plugin's SetupMenu() function.
- Added support for "Pilot", "T2-System-Id" and "SISO/MISO" parameters (thanks to
   Rolf Ahrenberg).
- Now initializing the isOnVideoDirectoryFileSystem member of cRecording when
   scanning the video directory, so that it won't cause a delay when opening the menu
   on a system with a large number of recordings.
- Now resetting the isOnVideoDirectoryFileSystem member of a cRecording to -1 after
   renaming it, so that it will be re-checked upon the next call to
   IsOnVideoDirectoryFileSystem().
- Added support for systemd (thanks to Christopher Reimer). To activate this you
   need to add "SDNOTIFY=1" to the 'make' call.

Have fun!
