The latest release 2.8.1 fixes many bugs large and small. All users of 2.8.0 should upgrade. Some of the most important fixes are:
- Several bugs in the Linux driver interface were fixed which made acquisition fail to start on certain Linux installations.
- A bug in the Nextview EPG data stream decoder was fixed which sometimes lead to display of corrupt or entirely blank network names.
- A bug in TV application channel table import was fixed which sometimes caused wrong names to be associated with channels.
- Various display bugs were fixed which were introduced by the upgrade to Tcl/Tk version 8.5 in nxtvepg release 2.8.0 (such as incorrectly displayed special characters in the main window and configuration dialogs; problems when searching for such characters; on Linux even a crash upon program start with certain versions of the Tcl/Tk library.)
