Hi multimedia,

The MythTV developers have shortened their release cycles and are already
preparing for their 0.23 release. So this is a good time to test all the
new things and give some feedback of how it works for you.

There are now also two new ports mythplugin-mythvideo and
mythplugin-mythmusic which give you the possibility to use mythtv as a
real Media Center also if you don't have a supported DVB card (like me).
You can import your movies and music in mythtv and play it from there.
They are really useful and I have to thank Andriy Bakay for the
preliminary work on this plugins!

Changelog for MythTV 0.23:

mythtv-themes, mythweb:
- Update to 0.23 RC1

Reported by: pointyhat via erwin [1]
Thanks to: Andriy Bakay <andriy AT> [2]

FreeBSD ports:

I also plan to enable vdpau support before I commit the 0.23 ports
but it is currently not enabled because it breaks compile and I
did not have time to fix it yet.

Good luck and have fun with it :o)
