'''RELEASE''' -- MythTV v0.20 was officially released at 0316EDT on Monday 11 Sep 2006.

'''RELEASE BUG''' -- The mythplugins tarball released Monday morning apparently acquired a small problem in the packaging process, and installs a MythWeb that won't work.  If you grabbed it, and use that, and have that problem, you can grab an updated copy of just that tarball now.  This also applies to early ATRPMs packages; I *think* Axel has updated ones up now.  Axel's YUM and similar repositories are shipping0.20, he says, even though his web pages haven't caught up yet.  --[[User:Baylink|Baylink]] 16:18, 12 September 2006 (UTC)
