I'm glad to hear this, but what about all the other developers and users?
Developer version back and forth, VDR 1.7.xx has become silently a somewhat
stable version over the years, due to it's HDTV capability. Becoming an
official stable is honestly long overdue. Nobody can really argue anymore,
1.7 is a developer version, because no HDTV user, not even Klaus, can go
back to stable SDTV VDR 1.6, whereas the majority doesn't have any hardware
for that anymore ...
A massive excluding change like this, is something for a new developer
branch and not a thing for a development cycle where the end could already
be smelled ...
And as far as I remember nobody did complain about the old Makefile
structur, and yes I mean nobody, because the two now known just changed it
w/o warning. Do what ever you need to do, I appriciate it, but remind always
some continuity for all others in the VDR universe.
The situation right now does need a solution, but it can't be the words of
Walter Ulbricht: "Vorwärts immer, rückwärts nimmer ..."
A compromise must be possible, whatever it looks like, otherwise my
comparison with "Louis XIV" hasn't been wrong ...
