Long time no release

Update: Apparently, I used a too recent version of libgee when generating the release tarball. Therefore, gnome-dvb-daemon 0.1.6 doesn’t compile with libgee 0.1.5. I just released version 0.1.7 which fixes this problem. After two months since the last release I’m proud to announce GNOME DVB Daemon 0.1.6. If you don’t know what it is: GNOME DVB Daemon is a daemon written in Vala based on GStreamer to setup your DVB devices, record and watch TV shows and browse EPG. It can be controlled by any application via its D-Bus interface. I’m particularly happy about this release, because it fixes two of the most annoying bugs. First of all, the channel scanner now produces the same results on each scan. Secondly, it’s now possible to record multiple shows on the same transport stream at the same time. In order for the latter to work properly you currently need gst-plugins-bad from git (a tarball is supposed to be released soon). Both bugs would still be present if the awesome Zaheer had not fixed fixed a couple of bugs in GStreamer and helped me getting the recording done correctly. Thanks a lot man!

Furthermore, I added a dialog to gnome-dvb-control to manage recordings. EPG data is now stored for each device group separately. Therefore, you have to delete the old database in ~/.cache/gnome-dvb-daemon. You can download the latest release at http://download.gnome.org/sources/gnome-dvb-daemon/0.1/ This version requires gst-rtsp-server 0.10.2.
