Re: Small GUI for all devices working with ivtv.
[In reply to]
schrieb Christian Rapp <christian-rapp [at] arcor>:
today i'am releasing the new stable version 0.8.1
after one year of development with several alpha and beta versions.
During this period of time TV-Viewer evolved from a simple Gui, able to
change stations, to a stand-alone TV Application. The most important
features are listed here
and please note the screenshots.
An important hint for all users of TV-Viewer < 0.8.1a1. Please delete
the configuration directory "~/.tv-viewer" und create a new stations
list and check the configuration before you install the new version.
Otherwise problems can be expected.
As always if you find errors or you have something else on your mind,
please contact me.
It would be nice to get some feedback from the developers of ivtv :D
