I'm pleased to announce a new release of vdr softdevice plugin.

In short words: softdevice plugin is for getting vdr to 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.

For compile options, please read the Makefile carefully and decide which of
the available output methods fit to your system.

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