Key New Features

Major Changes

  • Conversion of internal times to UTC. Stored times will be converted by the database update mechanism. For example, tables program, recorded, oldrecorded, recordupdate will have their starttimes and endtimes converted to UTC. This should be of interest to daylight savings time users.
  • mythsyslogserver, a new system for handling all log requests. ZeroMQ is included in this release.
  • Numerous HLS (HTTP Live Streaming) playback fixes.
  • Almost a complete rewrite of RAOP server, used for Airtunes/AirPlay.
  • The format of config.xml has changed and mysql.txt is no longer used. Example:
  • Allow themes to customize caption/subtitle formatting [f13eeb0]cgitgithub.
  • Make the subtitle zoom factor into a live setting [0089f7d]cgitgithub.

Prerequisite Changes


Added support libraries/prerequisites


Removed support libraries/prerequisites


Special Notices & Instructions

  • MySQL must have time zone tables added, see MySQL_Time_Zone_Tables.
  • If you build from source and use mythffplay, add --enable-sdl when running configure [fb90f73]cgitgithub.
  • User scripts/tools that depended on mysql.txt should be reviewed. Since MythTV no longer uses mysql.txt, its no longer updated. Scripts/tools could stop working.
  • The (broken) "Expire in deleted order" setting has been removed [928135e]cgitgithub.
  • HLS users building from source must use --enable-libmp3lame when running configure [628ea66]cgitgithub.
  • Support for CEA-608 teletext captions will be removed in 0.27. Using mythfrontend --verbose general logging, a "DEPRECATED_608_TELETEXT" message will appear in the logs of affected users. Refs #10786, [7b1aef8]cgitgithub, [44f5414]cgitgithub.
  • Users referencing logfiles (e.g. those created by using --logpath will note that the timestamp portion of the filename is now in UTC [28d9324]cgitgithub
  • Wunderground scripts now use the REST API. NOTE: All users who wish to use the wunderground weather source MUST sign up for an API key. [e4c181a]cgitgithub is a must read for these users.
  • The -l option for mythshutdown has been removed. Use --lock [87eb634]cgitgithub
  • Users building from source note: Video decoders are enabled by default. Disable options are now available. [f60a706]cgitgithub, Fixes #10813

Video Playback

Bug Fixes
  • [60cf735]cgitgithub: Fixes #9861. Upside-down videos taken on an iPhone are correctly flipped.
  • [3bbf624]cgitgithub: An option is added to the playback OSD menu to allow an in-progress playlist to be cancelled.
  • [4d0bbbe]cgitgithub: The ExactSeeking setting (seek to exact frame) is removed, in favor of more adaptive, sensible behavior. When doing relative seeks, snap to the nearest keyframe if its distance from the target frame is within 10% of the total seek distance. When seeking within the cutlist editor, use a value of 50% instead. Exact frame seeking is always used for absolute seeks (bookmark seek, skips based on cutlist/commskiplist, preview generation), and for keyframe and single-frame seeking in the cutlist editor.
  • [769059b]cgitgithub: Add functions for converting between pre- and post-cutlist frame numbers. Refs #8631. These functions are not actually used anywhere yet.
  • [b57fdf8]cgitgithub: Declare pre/post cutlist translation functions as const.
  • [f8ee92d]cgitgithub: Cutlist editor: Add new theme strings for editing.
  • [990e579]cgitgithub: Add new OSD theme strings for cutlist-adjusted times and durations. Refs #8631.

Disc Playback (DVD, Blu-Ray, etc) and Media Detection

Bug Fixes

OSD, EPG, MHEG, CC, and Subtitles

New Features
Bug Fixes
  • [f13eeb0]cgitgithub Formatting of text-based captions and subtitles is put under theme control, via the new theme file osd_subtitle.xml. The CCBackground and DefaultSubtitleFont settings are removed.
  • [631bb1e]cgitgithub The Prefer708Captions setting is removed. CEA-708 captions are now always preferred over CEA-608 captions (though CEA-608 captions can still be selected during playback).
  • [0089f7d]cgitgithub The OSDCC708TextZoom setting is removed from the setup options and is now implemented as a live setting. The Subtitles sub-menu of the playback OSD menu has an option that allows the user to change the zoom setting for text-based subtitles during playback and see the effect immediately. Changes are immediately saved.
  • [461f42d]cgitgithub A similar live setting is added for bitmap-based subtitles, such as in DVD/BD videos.
  • [689a7b5]cgitgithub Improved handling of forced subtitles, both at the track level and at the individual subtitle level.
  • [ea554c9]cgitgithub Refs #10808 Track auto-selection is improved to take forced tracks into account.
  • [5c047f4]cgitgithub A complete set of CEA-708 fonts is provided.
  • [7b1aef8]cgitgithub: Refs #10786 CEA-608 teletext caption support is deprecated and will be removed in 0.27. Note that this is different from DVB teletext subtitles and standard CEA-608 closed captions.
  • [27fd744]cgitgithub: Fix some XDS parsing.
  • [fb2be2e]cgitgithub: Suppress some extended uncode characters in 608 caption debug output.
  • [bc9e741]cgitgithub: Subtitles: Use VB_VBI instead of VB_GENERAL for most 608/708 logging.
  • [62ba11a]cgitgithub: Subtitles: Make AVSubs zoom factor persistent.
  • [6aa737c]cgitgithub: Subtitles: Minor cleanup of SubtitleScreen:InitializeFonts().
  • [bf8d429]cgitgithub: Subtitles: Call Pulse() on the SubtitleScreen children.
  • [0bb3790]cgitgithub: Subtitles: Encapsulate zoom get/set into the SubtitleScreen class.
  • [53f7a1d]cgitgithub: Subtitles: Adjust AVSub scaling in some cases.
  • [650b272]cgitgithub: Subtitles: Rescale AV subs in place when the zoom factor is changed.
  • [d5ce98e]cgitgithub: Subtitles: Enable forced subtitle tracks. Refs #10735
  • [f0f37a5]cgitgithub: Subtitles: Avoid changing subtitle state in the decoder thread. Refs #10740
  • [b1eb74d]cgitgithub: Subtitles: Add a leading space to teletext subtitle backgrounds.
  • [419fc84]cgitgithub: Subtitles: Only display teletext captions inside the "box" area. Refs #10678.
  • [9b514c4]cgitgithub: Fixes #10820. Add iso-639 language code to teletext and dvb subtitles extracted by mythccextractor.
  • [79dc4b5]cgitgithub: Subtitles: Add a clarifying comment to the default osd_subtitle.xml.
  • [44f5414]cgitgithub: Subtitles: log the DEPRECATED_608_TELETEXT under -v general
  • [3df350e]cgitgithub: Fixed description of CEA-708 font tag 3: Monospaced Sans Serif.
  • [7190ddc]cgitgithub: Fix slow OSD issue.
  • [4379cfa]cgitgithub: Refs #8631. Set OSD relposition property for timestretch, volume, etc.
  • [3cf139e]cgitgithub: Improve comments and formatting in osd_subtitle.xml reference implementation.
  • [0a4eb5f]cgitgithub: Remove unused arguments from TV::UpdateOSDStatus().
  • [ca9086d]cgitgithub: Cleanup OSD::DialogShow(), this code had the potential to segfault if the theme was missing a dialogue definition.

Network Control

New Features
Bug Fixes


New Features
  • [00984d7]cgitgithub: Use correct RecordingInfo* in FinishedRecording()'s SendMythSystemRecEvent().
  • [98d02db]cgitgithub: Refs #10712. Add error checking, proper formatting, and improve debugging of previous commit.
  • [6911895]cgitgithub: Fix PlaybackSock::GetMaxBitrate protocol usage.
  • [cfda063]cgitgithub: A RecordingRule is owned by it's RecordingInfo and should not be free'd elsewhere.
  • [45368f1]cgitgithub: Convert HttpStatus date/time formatting to use MythDate. This is more consistent, more easily maintained and importantly allows proper translation of dates because it doesn't make incorrect assumptions about date formats. e.g In some languages the day of the week doesn't preceed the date as was hardcoded previously.
  • [9f447f4]cgitgithub: Change the signature of TvPlayWindow::gestureEvent() to match the base class, the two diverged at some point.
  • [529853d]cgitgithub: Move QUERY_FILETRANSFER handling to improve backend performance.
  • [b571874]cgitgithub: Adjust GPS leap seconds.
  • [16b232a]cgitgithub: Update example config.xml for new format.
  • [2e1820c]cgitgithub: Remove leftover garbage from example config.xml
  • [9b3d59c]cgitgithub: Remove legacy DBHostPing from config.xml
HTTP Live Streaming (all HLS changes collected here)
UTC Changes (all UTC changes collected here)
This is going to break some stuff until I figure out what all needs to
be handled as local or UTC.
Bug Fixes

Scanning and Tuner/Recorder Support

New Features
Bug Fixes
  • [33705ae]cgitgithub: Apply the MythUIShape's alpha attribute when drawing it.
  • [2afae60]cgitgithub: Make MythUIType::SetPosition() a non-virtual, descendants should not need to override this to change SetPostion() functionality. Overriding SetPosition(const MythPoint&) should be sufficient, and is what existing descendants do now.
  • [e763a6a]cgitgithub: Handle mouse in mythuibuttontree.
  • [c9497cb]cgitgithub: Fix incorrect deletion of a MythUIType object in MythUIButtonList::CopyFrom() which left an invalid pointer in the list of children. Refs #10807

  • [8438a0e]cgitgithub: Change MythUIButtonList::SetValue() to pass QString by a const reference rather than value.
  • [8d6e680]cgitgithub: const correctness fix in mythui.

  • [1237254]cgitgithub: Disable the 'guess main title' code for DVDs, it's not actually working at all and causes a major memory leak in libdvdnav with some DVDs
  • [87b3f9c]cgitgithub: Fix a potential leak in dvdnav_describe_title_chapters. Thanks to James Dutton (libdvdnav) for identifying the problem.
  • [d5b6760]cgitgithub: Fix leak in TeletextScreen::ClearScreen. Fixes #10630
  • [7d4b285]cgitgithub: Fix memory leak when reading flac vorbis tags. Fixes #10721
  • [e8aef6a]cgitgithub: Fix memory leak in MetaIOTagLib::getTrackLength(const QString &filename)
  • [2144ef1]cgitgithub: Fix leak of MetaIOID3() object if we're scanning Flac files without ID3 tags. Fixes #10776 and #10757
  • [6ce0af8]cgitgithub: Fix file handle leaks in oggvorbis and wavpack tag readers. These, along with one in the flac tag reader were caused when we stopped using an instance of the Taglib::FileRef class to read the track length.
