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 1.7.34:

- Making sure that plugins include the VDR header files from the actual VDR source
   directory when doing "make plugins" (suggested by Christoper Reimer).
- Increased the version numbers of all plugins to reflect the recent Makefile changes.
- Removed the lines
   ifdef DVBDIR
   INCLUDES += -I$(DVBDIR)/include
   from the file Make.config.template. If set, DVBDIR is now conveyed to plugins via
   the CFLAGS.
- Removed some redundancy from Make.config.template.
- Changed "==" to "=" in the Makefile to make it POSIX style.
- Added MANDIR to the vdr.pc file, so that plugins that need it can retrieve it via
   MANDIR = $(DESTDIR)$(call PKGCFG,mandir).
- Using relative paths again when building plugins locally (by request of Udo Richter).
- Plugin Makefiles can now include a configuration file for compile time parameters
   (requested by Reinhard Nissl). The actual name of this file can be defined in
   Make.config (see "PLGCFG" in Make.config.template), and existing plugin Makefiles
   that have compile time parameters should add the lines
   PLGCFG = $(call PKGCFG,plgcfg)
   -include $(PLGCFG)
   accordingly (see the "newplugin" script for details).
- Re-enabled building plugins that still use pre-version-1.7.34 Makefiles.
   The file Make.global is present again to satisfy the "include" these Makefiles do,
   but the file itself contains no settings. The VDR Makefile's "plugins" target
   determines whether a particular plugin uses an old style Makefile and calls it
   accordingly. Note that this only works when building plugins from within the VDR
   source tree, using "make plugins" in the VDR source directory.
- Removed "include" from the DVBDIR setting in the VDR Makefile (reported by Oliver
   Endriss). You may need to adjust your DVBDIR setting in Make.config, in case you
   use it.
- Added maximum SNR value for PCTV Systems PCTV 73ESE (thanks to Cedric Dewijs).

Have fun!
