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.
So far I neglected writing about this year's Google Summer of Code. This ends with this post. As last year, I'm working on GNOME DVB Daemon.
In the last couple of weeks I concentrated on the user experience, thus making setting up devices as easy as possible. I made a short screencast that shows the new assistant started by the Totem plugin.
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.
I really like the recent efforts to streamline the work towards GNOME 3.0. I'm in favor of all points on the roadmap. Especially the point about re-designing gnome.org. That's a task that is overdue for a long time. Hopefully, the re-design points out why GNOME rocks and makes it easy for interested people to find a way to contribute. What I'd love to see is a way to search API docs like gotapi does.
Yesterday I released version 0.1.4 of GNOME DVB Daemon. This release features mostly bug fixes and a timer icon is displayed in gnome-dvb-control if a recording overlaps with the event. Furthermore, a help message is displayed if no groups are configured.
