Another GNOME DVB Daemon release

It hasn’t been that long since the last release and I try to continue releasing more often in the future. Version 0.1.9 is mainly bug fix release. It fixes are critical bug that caused the channel list file to be corrupted (especially with DVB-S). In addition, the EPG scanner and channel scanner use their own main loop now. That should make the daemon more responsive and fixes a couple of crashes. Beside the bug fixes there’s only one new feature. The title of the show a scheduled recording belongs to is retrieved. Therefore, you don’t just see the channel, start time and duration of each timer, but the title of the show, if available, too. This required changing the database scheme, make sure to delete ~/.config/gnome-dvb-daemon/ before starting the new version. (I just realized I mentioned the wrong directory in the release notes. Sorry.) The new version is available at
