VDR developer version 1.3.47 is now available at

Except for a few version numbers in the man pages etc., this
is pretty much what will become the final version 1.4.


And the new VDR version introduces an interesting feature
Quote- The new function cPlugin::Active() can be used by a plugin to indicate that it
is still busy and the system should not shut down or restart (based on a patch
from Peter Dittmann). See PLUGINS.html for details.
I think this is something that should be used by vompserver.


I will implement this for the next plugin version, since this ability has been requested before on here.


One more. This should be the last before 1.4.

This one needs a patch to the VOMP server plugin:

VDR developer version 1.3.49 is now available at

A 'diff' against the previous version is available at

Well, it's an unusual time for a new developer version of VDR,
but since there have been a few last minute fixes, and I really
want to make version 1.4.0 happen this sunday, I'm releasing
this hopefully last release candidate today.

Please take a thorough look at the changes - especially the ones
to the actual program code files - to help avoid any stupid last
minute bugs.

If there are no more serious bugs, this will become the final
version 1.4.0 this sunday :-)


VDR version 1.4.0 is now available at

A summary of all the major changes since the last stable version 1.2.6 can be found at

When updating from version 1.2.6 please make sure you read the INSTALL
and MANUAL files that come with the VDR source _before_ doing so!
Please make sure you have backup copies of all your configuration files,
and verify carefully that your timers will be set to the correct channels
after switching to this new version.


QuoteVDR maintenance patch 1.4.0-2 is now available at

This is a 'diff' against the official version 1.4.0 plus all
previous 1.4.0-X maintenance patches.

Small fixes to the officially released VDR versions will be first
made available as "maintenance patches" in the Developer directory,
so that they can be reviewed and tested before a new official
release is published.

So please apply the patches
