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.

Approaching version 2.0.0:

If all goes well, there should be no more functional or API changes
before the final version 2.0.0. There will just be a few more fixes.

The changes since version 1.7.37:

- Updated the Ukrainian OSD texts (thanks to Yarema Aka Knedlyk).
- Updated the Estonian OSD texts (thanks to Arthur Konovalov).
- Updated the Romanian OSD texts (thanks to Lucian Muresan).
- Updated the French OSD texts (thanks to Marc Perrudin, Bernard Jaulini and Peter
- Updated the Macedonian OSD texts (thanks to Dimitar Petrovski).
- Fixed moving editing marks, so that they don't get overwritten with old values
   through an update of the marks file.
- Removed an invalid line from channels.conf.terr (reported by Lars Hanisch).
- Fixed an unexpected k_Repeat key event after a k_Release in lirc.c.
- Fixed permissions of po/sr_SR.po (reported by Dominic Evans).
- Updated the Italian OSD texts (thanks to Diego Pierotto).
- Fixed using "Pause" and "Slow motion" near the end of a recording (replay stopped
   a few seconds after the end of the recording file has been reached).
- Fixed selecting the last replayed recording in the Recordings menu in case there
   are folders and plain recordings with names that differ only in non-alphanumeric
   characters (reported by Andre Weidemann).
- Fixed the description of the OSD drawing functions DrawEllipse() (the values -5...-8
   for the Quadrants parameter are not implemented).
- Made cOsd::DestroyPixmap() "NULL proof".
- Now deleting any previously allocated pixmaps in cOsd::SetAreas().
- Added demos of the DrawEllipse() and DrawSlope() function to the 'osddemo'
   plugin (press '1' or '2', respectively).
- Updated the Lithuanian OSD texts (thanks to Valdemaras Pipiras).
- The timeout for trying to switch to a valid programme is now reset immediately once
   a programme has been found.
- No longer checking for EOPNOTSUPP in cDvbTuner::GetSignalQuality() to avoid breaking
   this function in case the driver suddenly decides to return a different errno value
   if an operation is not supported.
- Moved the definition of TIMERMACRO_TITLE and TIMERMACRO_EPISODE from recording.h to
   config.h and using them to initialize Setup.NameInstantRecord (avoids having the same
   information in two places).
- Fixed the return value of cOsdProvider::StoreImage() in case there is no OSD provider.
- Fixed a crash in cMenuEditChanItem::Set() when entering a channel number that
   doesn't exist (reported by Mikael Hübsch).
- Fixed displaying pending timers in "alert" mode in the LCARS skin.
- Added missing $(LDFLAGS) to the Makefile of the dvbhddevice plugin (thanks to Ville
- Fixed some spellings in PLUGINS.html and Doxyfile (thanks to Ville Skyttä).
- Added '-p' to the cp command in the install-conf target of the Makefile (thanks to
   Ville Skyttä).
- Added missing 'const' to cDevice::HasProgramme() and cDevice::HasLock().
- Fixed determining the priority of the primary device in case it is neither replaying
   nor receiving a live channel (thanks to Matthias Senzel for reporting a problem with
   switching back to live viewing after replay in a setup with device bonding).
- Removed all \return and \param tags from comment lines marked with "///<" for Doxygen.
   There was only a rather small number of these, and I would probably always forget to
   put them in place when writing future comments, so I decided to drop them entirely.
- Added Doxyfile.filter to have special characters escaped that would otherwise be
   dropped by Doxygen (reported by Ville Skyttä).
- Using 'cat' instead of 'cp' to copy the Doxyfile to avoid problems in case Doxyfile
   is write protected.
- Updated the Doxyfile with a newer version of Doxygen.
- Turned off following symlinks in the Doxyfile.
- Removed trailing whitespace.
- Expanded tabs in PLUGINS/src/dvbhddevice/setup.c.
- Some formatting fixes.

Have fun!
