We have put our main efforts into bug fixing for stability and usability again. According to our roadmap every RC1 specifc bug could be fixed.
Unfortunately we had to remove the "MyTrailers" and "MyMusicVideos" plugins from the installation package because both plugins are broken and unmaintained. Their original developers are not active anymore and trying to get the code working again would delay the complete product for another few weeks.
We want to thank everyone who took the time to created proper reports and to those who submitted patches.
You pushed MediaPortal forward.
A detailed list of changes is available on the following pages.
What happens next:
Next step on our Roadmap is to get rid of the remaining issues and verify that the changes we did for RC2 are working.
If all goes as expected then it will be a quite small step between RC2 and RC3. And (hopefully) a even shorter one from RC3 to final.
Before you install MediaPortal 1.0 RC2 please verify that your system meets the requirements.Bugs in this Release:
During our tests we had noticed that in some cases the uninstallation of a running TV-Server might fail. We will try to fix that for the RC3 release.
To avoid issues we recommend that you manually uninstall MediaPortal and/or the TV-Server before you launch the RC2 installer.
If you recently installed the ServicePack 3 for Windows XP then it is essential that you re-apply the dvb-fix mentioned on the requirements page.
If you find any issues or bugs then please report them in the appropriated bugreport forum.
