On behalf of the entire Rivendell development team, I'm pleased to announce 
the release of Rivendell v0.9.82.  Rivendell is a full-featured radio 
automation system targeted for use in professional broadcast environments. It 
is available under the GNU General Public License.  From the NEWS file:

*** snip snip ***
   OVERLAP Transition.  A new transition type, called 'OVERLAP' has been
   added.  Operation is similar to that of a SEGUE, except that audio from
   the finishing event is not faded out, but will play at full volumne to the
   end of the event.

   Scheduler Integration Enhancements.  A number of additions have been 
   made to allow for greater control and integration between Rivendell and
   third-party scheduling tools.  These include:

     Music Log Reconciliation.  Additional data fields have been added to the
     Music Log parser to allow for proper Electronic Log Reconciliation (ELR)
     to be configured for Music as well as Traffic logs.

     It's now possible to schedule voice tracks from imported Traffic logs by
     means of the 'Insert Voice Track' string setting in

     It's now possible to insert a Log Note from imported Music logs by means
     of the 'Note Cart String' setting in RDAdmin->ManageServices.

  RDImport Options.  A new '--title-from-cartchunk-cutid' switch has been
  added to RDImport to allow title data to be extracted from CartChunk CutID
  field of imported files.

  Dependency Changes.  As of this release, the LibRadio and LibRHpi packages
  are supplied 'built-in' as part of the core Rivendell distribution.  Thus,
  it is NO LONGER NECESSARY to install these packages separately.  As part of
  this process, a new utility called 'RDHPIInfo' (formerly the 'RHPIInfo
  utility in LibRadio) has been added.

  Bug Fixes.  A major emphasis of this release has been to fix as many known
  bugs as possible.  See the ChangeLog for details.

Database Update:
   This version of Rivendell uses database schema version 141, and will
   automatically upgrade any earlier versions.  To see the current schema
   version prior to upgrade, see RDAdmin->SystemInfo.

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