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 2.3.6:

- Fixed false positives when checking the locking sequence, in case of nested 
  within the same thread.
- Fixed uninitialized variable SdWatchdog in vdr.c (reported by Frank Neumann).
- Fixed the locking sequence when starting an instant recording.
- Fixed L(ock) and U(nlock) indicators in cStateLockLog.
- Increased SLL_LENGTH in thread.c to better handle long caller lines, and 
  logCaller with DEBUG_LOCKCALL to preserve memory in normal operation.
- Fixed a typo in CAMMENURETYTIMEOUT and added logging CAM enquiries.
- The new configuration file 'camresponses.conf' can be used to define automatic
  responses to CAM menus, for instance to avoid annyoing popup messages or 
  the parental rating PIN. See vdr.5 for details.
- The option "Setup/Miscellaneous/Show channel names with source" can now be 
set to
  "type" or "full" to show either the type or the full name of the source 
(thanks to
  Martin Wache).
- The "Channels" menu now indicates whether a channel is encrypted ('X') or a 
  channel ('R') (thanks to Martin Wache).
- Changed ##Lock to ##_Lock in the DEF_LIST_LOCK and USE_LIST_LOCK macros 
  in tools.h, so that there is no cSchedulesLock any more. The epgsearch plugin 
  had an abandoned member of class cSchedulesLock, which, as a side effect, 
caused an
  invalid lock sequence to be flagged (reported by Johann Friedrichs). In order 
  have the compiler report such things, these macros have been changed.
- Introduced the new macro DISABLE_TEMPLATES_COLLIDING_WITH_STL, which can be 
  before including tools.h in case some plugin needs to use the STL and gets 
  messages regarding one of the template functions defined in tools.h.

Have fun!
