* it is possible to enable/disable the full VLC interface on the fly while JTVLANClient is playing
* client can override server capture type

0.2.0 - 22 May 2006

- Support for WebScheduler authentication
- Volume control on the main JTVLANClient window
- Toggle fullscreen control on the main window
- Client now warns when WebScheduler needs the user to free the capture card to be able to perform a scheduled recording
- More accurate file splitting
- Solved compatibility problem with Java 1.4

0.1.4 - 6 May 2006

- Transcode options. Client may ask the server to stream at a lower bitrate, an useful option when the client is on a slow net
- Auto splitting. Client can ask the server to limit file size of temporary buffers and recorded shows to a given value. NOTE: this feature has been implemented very roughly. File size is only approximate and there is a gap in live tv and recordings of about 15 seconds when the files are splitted.
- User preferences are persisted to an user properties file. When the client is launched it remembers its previous settings.
- A new tab pane shows some details of the current activity.

0.1.3 - 1 May 2006

- JTVLANServer setup checks for possibly incompatible versions of WebScheduler and warns about it
- Fixed a problem which caused WebScheduler to lock all the cards if WebScheduler version was not supported (e.g. 3.0.x).
- Make channel list retain focus when it is always on top and playback starts
- Persist the values of the options when the JTVLANClient is closed- Transcoding options for local recording
- Autosplitting of recorded files

0.1.2a - 28 Apr 2006

- Jakarta HTTP client replaced with the LGPL HTTP client library to avoid license incompatibilities
- Basic use of RC interface to detect VLC playback problems. Still some work to do though.
- Full source code included in distribution package

0.1.2 - 25 Apr 2006

- Rework on the code which controls VideoLAN. Release 0.1.2 does not use HTTP interface any more to control VideoLAN in favour of starting and killing VideoLAN each time is needed. This approach proved to be more stable and simpler to configure
- Configuration utilities both for client and server
- Rationalization of the JTVLANServer HTTP interface. Now every action on JTVLANServer should be invoked through the single /servlet/JTVLANServerRes entry point
- Extensive server side logging to trace problems
- Simplified distribution structure (4 files for JTVLANClient and 3 files for JTVLANServer)
