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.

Note: This is a "holiday release" ;-)
----- I'm going on vacation and just wanted to make the current source
      available before that. There will be at least one more developer version
      before the final stable version 2.4.0.

The changes since version 2.3.7:

- Updated links in the INSTALL file (thanks to Chris Mayo).
- Fixed detecting whether a CAM replies to queries, which didn't work on some 
  since the implementation of RI_HOST_CONTROL (reported by Daniel Scheller).
- Added some missing locks when calling functions from cStatus or cSkin*, and 
  some text to status.h and skins.h, explaining the locking situation when such
  functions are called.
- Fixed a possible crash in cStateLockLog.
- Updated the Italian OSD texts (thanks to Diego Pierotto).
- Now skipping a leading '/' in AddDirectory(), to avoid double slashes 
(reported by
  Chris Mayo).
- Fixed drawing very long menu titles in the LCARS skin (reported by Matthias 
- Timers are now linked to EPG events even if they are inactive. By default 
Events that
  are linked to inactive timers are marked with 'I' and 'i', depending on 
whether the
  timer would record the entire Event or only part of it.
  The function cSkinDisplayMenu::SetItemEvent() now has an additional parameter 
  TimerActive, which indicates whether the timer that would record this event 
(if any)
  is active. A plugin may react on this when displaying a menu line for an 
  The old version of cSkinDisplayMenu::SetItemEvent() (without the TimerActive 
  is still there for backwards compatibility. It may be removed in a future 
  so plugin authors should switch to the new one.
- Now using readdir() instead of readdir_r(), if GLIBC version 2.24 or newer is 
  (suggested by Frank Neumann).
- Added a note to the log, indicating that no further invalid lock sequences 
will be
  reported until VDR is restarted.
- Whenever a change is made to the recordings in the video directory, the SVDRP 
  UPDR is now sent to all peer VDRs, so that they will update their recordings 
  This is especially useful if one VDR mounts the video directory of an other 
one into
  a subdirectory.
- SVDRP peering can now be limited to the default SVDRP host (see MANUAL for 

Have fun!
