On behalf of the Rivendell development team, I'm pleased to announce the
immediate release of Rivendell v0.9.76. Rivendell is a full-featured radio
automation system targeted for use in professional broadcast environments. It
is available under the GNU General Public License. From the NEWS file:

*** snip snip ***
Changes:
New/Extended RMLs -- A new 'Toggle On Air Flag' [TA] RML has been
added that toggles the 'On Air Mode' of RDAirPlay. A new argument
added to the 'Start Next' [PN] RML allows log meta-events to be
automatically skipped (useful primarily when integrating with mixer
surfaces in Manual or LiveAssist modes).

Log Refreshing -- It is now possible to 'refresh' a log while
playing out, thus preserving the view of what has already been
played in the Full Log widget while still loading updated log
elements. Such refreshing can be done either manually or
configured on either a log-by-log or service-by-service basis to
happen automatically whenever log updates are saved to the database.

New AsPlayed Reports -- A 'Technical Report' has been added that
captures extended playout information from RDAirPlay (such as the
cause of an event start). A 'SoundExchange Statutory License
Report' has also been added that can be used to generate data in a
format suitable for direct submission of music playout data to
SoundExchange.

Printable Reports -- It's now possible to generate ASCII-formatted
and printable reports about virtually every aspect of Rivendell
operation, including Cart/Cut lists, Logs, RDCatch events and
more, by touching the 'Reports' button in the respective Rivendell
modules. The choice of external viewer/editor used can be set by
means of the VISUAL environmental variable (default is 'vi' on
Linux, 'Notepad' on Win32).

Log Data Importer Changes -- The parser parameters for 'Length' in
RDADmin->ManageServices has been split into sections to allow
specification by hours, minutes and seconds as well as the previously
supported plain seconds.

Audio Auditioning -- It's now possible to audition audio directly
from the Edit Log dialog in RDLogEdit and the Edit Event dialog in
RDLogManager. No attempt is made evaluate rotation logic when
auditioning -- merely the first valid audio found in the selected
cart is played.

Cart Validity Indication (EXPERIMENTAL) -- The color-coding of
Carts and Cuts in RDLibrary has been altered so as to show the
event's 'playability' *at the instant the event is viewed*. The
yellow 'conditional' indication has been retired.

Many Bugfixes -- See the ChangeLog for details.

Library Versions:
This version requires that, at a minimum, libradio-0.97.4 and
librhpi-0.94.7 be installed. If installing from RPM, the version of
the currently installed libraries can be determined by doing:

rpm -q libradio
rpm -q librhpi

Database Update:
This version of Rivendell uses database schema version 126, and will
automatically upgrade any earlier versions. To see the current schema
version prior to upgrade, see RDAdmin->SystemInfo.

As always, be sure to run RDAdmin immediately after
upgrading to allow any necessary changes to the database schema to
be applied.
