trunk is the latest code. the different branches are for testing
purposes (like multirec or multiuser) before they sometime in the
future become a part of the official release.

> But what are those else? Is there any good description about branches?
I can only guess according to name that:
-qt4 is for QT v.4. MythTv is working at the moment with QT3.
-pip is for PictureInPicture although I have no idea what is being
done there, because I believe that most of the people are not using it
(I was using it a few months ago, but I did no like it because PIP was
in square format, not in 4:3)
-eit stands for Event Information Table which is a part of DVB-SI
(service information). EIT contains EPG data
mythmusic-ui is probably some kind of new gui for MythMusic, because
there were a few discussions on the list about the current gui.
multiuser is the same as others branches and devs are using this
branch for multiuser feature in mythtv

> And major differencies on 0.18 , 0.19 , 0.20 and trunk versions?
