During the development of version 1.3 I have been often a little
frustrated not to have seen a final version 1.4. There were a lot of
reasons that IMHO the usage of version 1.2 was quite outdated: No
automatic channel scan, updated Dolby Digital output, modified recording
format and finally plug-ins that only worked with the 1.3 branch.

I expect the same for vdr 1.5 concerning e.g. multiprotocol drivers, or
to be more precise: Usage of DVB-S2. As soon as multiprotocol drivers
and DVB-S2 are working, I think there will be once again no way back to
the stable version, even if the final 1.6 might make us wait until
2009/2010. Nevertheless, it was good to see that bigger bugs in 1.3 have
been reported a few days later so that I was always informed wether it
was "secure" to install the latest development branch.

Some people (not saying you're one of them) automatically assume that
because something is labeled as "development", that it's not stable.
Not true.  I've been using vdr since 1.3.x also and most of the
'development' versions up until 1.5.2 have been very stable.
Something else I've noticed is people thinking vdr is faulty when it's
actually a plugin they use that's causing problems.
