Release Notes: Some changes in putenv() caused ffrecord to fail. Now ffrecord uses setenv() instead. Desktop stay-on-top works again in Gnome 2.10, but it has a sid effect: it cannot accept keyboard input. there is a gcc 4.x compilation fix.
Release Notes: This release features bugfixes in the user interface of scheduled recording, core dumping with error messages like "GtkEntry - did not receive focus-out-event", and bugfixes for when adding a new entry where the recording volume was not initialized. This version also now uses GNOME's stock buttons where possible.
Release Notes: The problem of too many keystrokes from LIRC remote control has been fixed. It is now possible to specify the master sound volume for scheduled recording. NTSCjp, PAL_M, PAL_N, and PAL_Nc have been added to the TV standard config. The space key can now be used to return to the last channel.
