I've installed it and haven't been able to spot the differences so far - at 
least none of the things I was hoping for have been included.

I was hoping that:
1. The DVB Radio patches were included
2. mythfilldatabase would work without upgrading xmltv
3. mythstreamtv would stream DVB recordings without them having been 
transcoded (using the mpeg2 lossless encoder). This requires the latest 
nightly build of vlc, which seems to have a lot of dependencies and also 
(when installed with apt-get) removes some pretty important packages (such as 
mythplugins, mythweb, mythstreamtv).

(Please note: this is not a complaint, I am extremely pleased with knoppmyth 
and very grateful to all of the developers. It is just for information for 
anyone thinking of upgrading to R5C7).
