This message is intended to people running trunk as their main/live system.

How is stability now as of late?
Last time I tried (mid-jan) ; mythfrontend would segfault 4 out 5
times at startup.

The progress bar showing the theme pictures being rescaled was showing
in the top-right corner and wasn't displayed properly on my nvidia
based PC (though on intel IGP it would display fine).

And in mythvideo (probably the plugin I used the most) ; in listing
mode , the actual window containing the list of all the files was
using less than a quarter of the available screen space ; making it
impossible to read the file name (only about 6-7 characters would be

My 0.21 installation is rather stable ; and I've been backporting the
newer VDPAU code regularly back on 0.21. But it's getting rather
boring to spend time backporting those changes all the time. I feel my
time would be better spent on helping trunk instead.

So I was hoping I could take the jump now.
The system I can develop/code on has to be the same as my production
one (I have only one backend/development machine)

What's the current status of trunk, and what's left to be done before
0.22 is released ?

Thanks in advance
