MythTV Releases version .18

Posted on 15 April 2005 by sam

MythTV .18 released!

New release. Fun stuff. Full changelog here, but the major stuff is:

* I’m now only distributing three source packages, instead of eleven. The new ‘mythplugins’ package combines all of the add-in modules that used to be distributed separately (mythmusic, mythweather, etc). There’s a top-level configure script to enable/disable/configure all of the plugins. The new ‘myththemes’ package contains some of the themes that used to be distributed in the main download (Titivillus, Minimalist-wide, Iulius). I’ve split these out to cut down on the size of the main package a bit. Be sure to grab the themes package if you’re using one of those themes, else you won’t get the updated version for this release.
* The configure script was greatly enhanced, and there’s no more editing of setting.pro to enable/disable certain options.
* Anyway, 0.18’s mainly a bugfix/minor feature release. Check the changelog for specifics. ”

Thanks to bouchecl for pointing this out in the Forum

New Features and Fixes for 0.18

Please note. This is only a temp page to load .18 features from cvs and to hold them until .18 is near ready. (This weekend hopefully) I am adding entries from the cvs for everyday then plan on going back in and reformatting and removing duplicates etc. Any help is appreciated.
