      This is a developer version. Even though I use it in my productive
      environment. I strongly recommend that you only use it under controlled
      conditions and for testing and debugging.
      From the HISTORY file:
      - Updated the Italian OSD texts (thanks to Diego Pierotto).
      - Fixed a high load in case a transponder can't be received.
      - Improved the way DVB_API_VERSION is checked.
      - Updated the Finnish OSD texts (thanks to Rolf Ahrenberg).
      - Fixed asserting there is a live programme if the primary device is bonded with
        a device that starts a recording on a different band.
      - Fixed the return type of cMyDeviceHook::DeviceProvidesTransponder() in PLUGINS.html.
      - Fixed a crash in a plugin using cDeviceHook when VDR ends (reported by Oliver Endriss).
      - Some improvements to the Makefiles (thanks to Christian Ruppert).
      - Fixed cRecording::LengthInSeconds(), which wrongfully rounded the result to full
        minutes (thanks to Christoph Haubrich).
      - Symbolic links are no longer resolved in cRecordings::ScanVideoDir() (thanks to
        Sundararaj Reel).
      - The epg.data file is now read in a separate thread to make the startup process
        faster in case the file is very large (suggested by Helmut Auer).
      - Fixed selecting the primary device for receiving the live viewing channel in
        case it is bonded with an other device and has no receiver attached to it.
      - Fixed a possible crash when canceling VDR while displaying subtitles, and the
        primary device is no longer available.
      - Improved handling subtitles of BBC channels.
      - No longer using tabs as delimiter in the EPG bugfix log (they were garbled in the
        log file).
      - Added a missing '.' after the month in VPS strings.
      - Added some missing 'const' to cDevice (thanks to Joachim Wilke).
      - Fixed handling the PrimaryLimit when requesting a device for live viewing
        (reported by Uwe Scheffler).
      - Removed superfluous calls to SetVideoFormat() from device constructors. This
        function is called in cDevice::SetPrimaryDevice(), anyway.
      - An ongoing editing process is now canceled if either the original or the edited
        version of the recording is deleted from the Recordings menu.
      - The SVDRP command DELR now won't delete a recording that is currently being edited.
      - Removed code stub for obsolete SVDRP command MOVT.
      - The DVB device adapters/frontends are now probed by scanning the /dev/dvb directory
        instead of looping through adapter/frontend numbers. This allows for "holes" in the
        device numbering.
      - cReadDir::Next() now skips directory entries "." and "..".
      - Fixed a possible deadlock in time shift mode.
      - Fixed switching into time shift mode when pausing live video (thanks to Reinhard
        Nissl for helping to debug this one).
