I made a quick update for you guys that recently turned your clocks ahead for the summer. If the clock turning caused problems with MTVG, please recompile MTVG with these new files [mtvg.sf.net/timefix], and set the time offset in Preferences->General. Cheers!

---[ v5.10.26 ]---[ 2005-10-26 ]---
This is a release with minor changes, apart from the one big thing - the forum! Every show now has it's own forum! Just right click on a show, select Forum and you're ready to start a debate. A summary of the changes:
* every show now has it's own forum!
* moved preferences tab to separate window
* resizable reminder dialogue when details are shown (request)
* quit button in main window (request)
* performance optimizations (please note that some results in lost custom channel names when upgrading)
* bug fix in parser (tv_grab_de_tvtoday , and possibly other grabbers, works better now)
---[ Fix (DE) ]---[ 2005-10-10 ]---
This is a temporary fix for all users in Germany (and possibly others?). Due to a faulty way of parsing the channel name, the channel names wouldn't show in the channel column in mtvg when using the german tv_today-grabber. Replace the files at [mtvg.sf.net/degrab] and recompile mtvg, that should do the trick! Sorry about the inconvenience!
---[ v5.10.3 ]---[ 2005-10-05 ]---
This release includes mostly user requests! New features are:
* more new user friendly
* two new views; search view (request) and full view
* time- and column separators (request)
* manual show column width (request)
* custom channel sorting
* doubleclick on show to toggle description
* category filter (request)
* go to next day at defined daystart (request)
* some performance optimizations and rewrites
* patch (for the US and others) applied; "default channel name fix". Thanks to nhjm449!
* reorganized prefs-tab for lower resolutions (request)
* minor bug fixes
---[ v5.9.12 ]---[ 2005-09-14 ]---
This release includes new xml-tags in descriptions, channel icons with custom size, a new (and less annoying) channel renaming system, show blacklisting, automatic checking for new versions of mtvg while updating listings and a bugfix in the reminder system.
---[ v5.8.8 ]---[ 2005-08-08 ]---
This release fixes some bugs in the design and presents a better looking presentation of time and time navigation. It is also now possible to customize channel names.
---[ v5.7.8 ]---[ 2005-07-10 ]---
In this release the reminder dialogue (which alerts the user when a favourite show starts) has been updated. Now there is a progress bar showing how much of the show that has passed. The dialogue auto-closes when the show ends (remaining countdown). Finally, it is now possible to check out the details of the show right in the reminder dialogue!
Bugfix: the application no longer shuts down if the reminder dialogue is closed instead of using the "Thanks!" button.
