Approaching version 2.0.0:

If there are no more serious bug reports, the final version 2.0.0 of VDR
shall be released on March 31, 2013.
So please test this developer version intensely and report any problems
you might encounter as soon as possible.

The changes since version 1.7.41:

- Added maximum SNR and signal strength value for TechniSat SkyStar HD2 (thanks to
   Zoran Turalija).
- Renamed the language file sr_SR.po to sr_RS.po (pointed out by Zoran Turalija).
- Fixed loading the setup.conf file in case a parameter contains the '#' character
   (thanks to Johann Friedrichs).
- The "Resume" button in the main menu is now only active if the respective recording
   actually exists (reported by Johann Friedrichs).
- The cutter now allocates its buffers on the heap to avoid problems on systems with
   limited stack space (suggested by Juergen Lock).
- Fixed formatting the channel definition example in the vdr(5) man page (thanks to
   Dominic Evans).
- Updated the default channels.conf file.

Have fun!
