Thanks to the awesome Klaus Staedler GNOME DVB Daemon finally has an icon and therefore two starters in the main menu. Version 0.1.17 is mostly a bug fix release (thanks to all the testers for reporting bugs). Most of the fixes are in the channel scanner. Unfortunately, if you want get the best experience you have to use gst-plugins-bad from git as well, because it contains some fixes. Following the recent trend to deprecate HAL, gudev is now used to detect connected devices.
