The Olympics in Vancouver are over, and the devs had some time left to mangle with a couple of bugs, and put out a new installer (2.6 for those who care).
But more has changed. Thom Cherryhomes has continued his work on the Hulu integration, los93sol has provided a plug and play integration of some HAI security panel, our friends at Dianemo/Cascade (namely Radu) has provided a fix for color problems in the Orbiter, and sambuca has fixed a lot of bugs in the event engine, thanks gies to apagg for opening tickets and working with him to test them.
niz23 has worked to get VDPAU into our mplayer setup, sambuca is slowly moving into not becoming very much our mobile orbiter genius, but also tackles ZWave. mandingo is our resident DKMS expert with his work on the v4l module packages, which GREATLY helps supporting newer tuner cards.
Since 2.5 the VDR integration has progressed a lot, thanks to all the testers.
As always, the updates are available via apt-get update ;; apt-get upgrade. The new-installer has been updated quite a bit, and might take a bit longer now that we install mandingo's v4l backport DKMS packages automatically.
As always, enjoy the fixes, and if you find any problems, please open a trac ticket. It is VERY important to check back on those tickets, to see, if there are any questions. Tickets with un-answered questions will be closed.
