Hi list,

My newest plugin project has reached its first milestone and allows 
first practical use, so its time to publicly announce it:

OSDServer is a plugin that allows external programs to use the OSD and 
the menu system of VDR. Access is done via TCP/IP and a simple script 
language that is primarily designed to be handled by perl programs and 
shell scripts. Until now, interactive VDR extensions were only available 
to C++ coders, but with this plugin, script coders can use the OSD too.

Version 0.0.1 only has a minimal set of commands for creating simple 
menus and OSD messages, but can already be used for user interaction. A 
simple example program is included, in perl and in bash version. This 
plugin release is a first test version only, to get some feedback for 
future development. Complex menus and dialogs will follow in later versions.
