   Upload Events in RDCatch.  It's now possible to schedule the
   automatic export and upload of audio files in RDCatch.  The
   following upload protocols are supported:

   Database Support Cleanups.  Added directives to rd.conf(5) to make
   it possible for Rivendell to work with RDBMS back-ends other than
   mySQL.  This feature has not been at all well tested as of yet.

   Import Filter for AirForce 'Wings' System.  The filter can be used
   to import the entire audio archive of an AirForce 'Wings' system
   *in situ*, without requiring reencoding of audio and while
   preserving much of the library meta-data from the original system.
   See the 'WINGS_FILTER.txt' file in the documentation directory for
   more information.

   New Switcher Device Support.  Added support for the BroadcastTools
   SS16.4 switcher.

   MPEG Cleanups.  Many bugfixes regarding the use and handling of
   MPEG audio.

   RDLogEdit Fixes.  Fixed all known outstanding issues with

   Miscellaneous Bugfixes.  See the ChangeLog for details.

Library Versions:
   This version requires that, at a minimum, libradio-0.93.2 and
   librhpi-94.1 be installed.  If installing from RPM, the version of
   the currently installed libraries can be determined by doing:

      rpm -q libradio
      rpm -q librhpi

Database Update:
   As always, be sure to run RDAdmin immediately after
   upgrading to allow any necessary changes to the database schema to
   be applied.
