On behalf of the entire Rivendell development team, I'm pleased to announce
the release of Rivendell v1.0.0rc0. Rivendell is a full-featured radio
automation system targeted for use in professional broadcast environments. It
is available under the GNU General Public License. Changes in this release
include (from the NEWS file):

*** snip snip ***
New Switcher Device. Support has been added for the 'Quartz' line
of video routing switchers made by Evertz. See the relevant
section in 'docs/SWITCHERS.txt' for details.

Logging Changes. A [Logs] section has been added to rd.conf(5) for
configuring event logging. Logging can now be done directly to
files (as before) or through the syslog facility. See the comments
in 'conf/rd.conf-sample' for details on setting this up.

Overlap Transition Retired. The ability to schedule 'Overlap'
transitions in program logs has been removed. The equivalent
functionality can still be achieved by scheduling a 'Segue'
transition with the 'No Fade at Event End' attribute enabled. Any
existing overlap transitions will be automatically converted when
the database schema update is applied.

Random Cut Rotation Retired. The ability to schedule cuts to rotate
'randomly' within a cart has been removed, with all cut rotation now
using the original 'sequential' algorithm.

Bugfixes. See the ChangeLog for details.

Database Update:
This version of Rivendell uses database schema version 158, 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.
