VDR developer version 1.3.40 is now available at


A 'diff' against the previous version is available at


The changes since version 1.3.39:

- Fixed a second place where a message should be given when an instant recording
   is started (reported by Jesus Bravo Alvarez).
- Modified logging so that even on NPTL systems each line in the log file shows
   the individual thread's pid (based on a suggestion from Francois-Xavier Kowalski).
- Fixed a problem with @plugin in keymacros.conf in case the named plugin is not
   loaded (reported by Franz Gangkofer).
- Fixed a crash after executing the SVDRP command CLRE, caused by dangling 'schedule'
   pointers from cChannel objects (reported by Malte Schröder).
- Updated the Finnish OSD texts (thanks to Rolf Ahrenberg).
- Improved NULL checking in strreplace().
- Fixed a crash in the Schedule menu with events that have no title (reported by
   Rolf Ahrenberg). cEvent::FixEpgBugs() now assigns a "No title" string to events
   that have no title.
- Updated the Estonian OSD texts (thanks to Arthur Konovalov).
- Recordings are now only started if there is at least 300MB free disk space
   (suggested by Markus Hahn).
- When entering text via the numeric keys, the cursor now automatically advances
   (based on a patch from Rolf Ahrenberg).
- Updated the Polish OSD texts and the fontosd-iso8859-2.c file (thanks to Jaroslaw
- Disabled the "buffer reserve" in Transfer Mode. Last chance to complain if you
   really need it - it will be completely removed in the next version. If you are
   experiencing problems with a/v running out of sync, try the latest driver and
   firmware (if you are using a full featured DVB card).
- Switching channels with the Up/Down or Channel+/Channel- keys now works a lot
   faster when the repeat function kicks in, by not actually switching the
   channel every time, but rather only displaying the channel info and doing
   the final switch when the key is released.
- The channel display is now updated _before_ the channel is switched.
- Added a missing initialization of 'timeout' in the cDisplayChannel constructor.
- Fixed detecting if there can be any useful further input when entering channel
   numbers (thanks to Thomas Bergwinkl).
- Updated the Spanish OSD texts (thanks to Jesus Bravo Alvarez).
- Fixed handling the '0' key for switching between the last two channels (thanks
   to Thomas Bergwinkl).

Have fun!
