VDR developer version 1.7.16 is out

A few days ago, Klaus Schmidinger has announced the release of VDR developer version 1.7.16 which is a welcome opportunity for us to revive our blog and update it with the good news. Please find a detailed list of changes below. We want to thank Klaus for his steady work on VDR core.


Klaus describes the changes in 1.7.16 compared to its predecessor like this:

  • Updated the Italian OSD texts (thanks to Diego Pierotto).
  • Added missing Dtypes for ATSC (thanks to Alex Lasnier).
  • Updated the Portuguese language texts (thanks to Cristiano A. Silva).
  • Updated the Finnish OSD texts (thanks to Rolf Ahrenberg).
  • Fixed the array size of Atypes in cPatFilter::Process() (thanks to Rolf Ahrenberg).
  • Added locking to the cCutter functions to avoid a crash in case CutRecording() is called from a plugin (reported by Andreas Mair).
  • Fixed DDS detection for HD resolution subtitles (thanks to Reinhard Nissl).
  • Fixed following symbolic links in RemoveFileOrDir().
  • Added support for languages that are written right-to-left (based on a patch from Osama Alrawab). See INSTALL for information on how to turn this on.
  • Added Arabian language texts (thanks to Osama Alrawab).

So, when will yaVDR ship with VDR 1.7.16? It will take a while and it will not be tomorrow, but we are already experimenting with this new version. Until then, new yaVDR 0.2 users might be interested to know that they can upgrade from VDR 1.7.14 to VDR 1.7.15 by updating their installation via apt-get update / apt-get dist-upgrade.

The yaVDR team is currently working on the next yaVDR version which will be yaVDR 0.3. A few very annoying problems of yaVDR 0.2 should be fixed with 0.3. And a lot of new features are in there too. More infos soon, stay tuned.
