I didn't get everything done I intended to last week. The most notable changes are:
Last week has been successful and almost all tasks have been completed. That means that channel.conf can be read and written for all DVB types. Recording should work for all DVB types, too (as already mentioned I myself can only test DVB-T). In addition, recordings are actually stopped after the given duration.
The last two weeks I made myself comfortable with the DVB and MPEG-TS part of GStreamer. I took code by Zaheer and refactored it. All the acronyms drive me crazy sometimes, but I understand most of them by now. It's currently possible to scan channels, watch channels and display EPG.
Today Deskbar-Applet 2.23.1, the first release of the unstable series that will lead to 2.24, has been released. A lot has changed since 2.22.0:

In the following text, I'll present the most significant changes.
It's been a very long time since I worked on NewStuffManager. The last couple of weeks I was able to work on NewStuffManager again.
For everyone who doesn't know what Capuchin/NewStuffManager is, it's a program that runs in the background, downloads and installs plugins. It can be used by any application through its D-Bus interface.
Today Deskbar-Applet 2.22.0, the first stable release of the 2.22 series, has been released. The changes since the 2.20.x are:
With Deskbar-Applet 2.21.90 the often requested Button UI that was already part in 2.18 returned. When you use this UI the results will be attached to the panel. Nevertheless, the window UI is still the default one.
In addition, Deskbar-Applet now recognizes when you change your peferred browser and activates the appropriate modules for you. E.g. when you were using Web History and Web Bookmarks for Mozilla before changing the preferred browser to Epiphany, Web History and Web Bookmarks for Epiphany will be enabled and the Mozilla modules disabled.
Yesterday, I released Deskbar-Applet 2.21.5.
I didn't post anything new about Deskbar-Applet for quite a while. This post is intended to inform you about the most notable new features of the 2.21 series. But first of all get the latest version from http://download.gnome.org/sources/deskbar-applet/2.21/.
