On behalf of the entire Rivendell development team, I'm pleased to announce 
the release of Rivendell v1.1.0.  Rivendell is a full-featured radio 
automation system targeted for use in professional broadcast environments. It 
is available under the GNU General Public License.  Changes in this release 
include (from the NEWS file):

   Custom Encoders.  It's now possible to configure Rivendell on a
   host-by-host basis to use any command-line audio encoder (e.g. FAAC, 
   FFmpeg) to drive exports, uploads and podcasts.  Information on setting it
   up can be found in 'ENCODERS.txt'.

   GPIO Enhancements.  The syntax of the 'GPI Set' [GI], 'GPO Set' [GO]
   and 'GPI Enable' [GE] RMLs has been extended and the underlying system
   modified to allow operation of all three commands with both GPI and GPO
   devices.  The old syntax is now deprecated, but still supported for
   backwards compatability.  Information on the new syntax can be found in

   New Record RMLs.  Two new RMLs, 'Start Record Deck' [RS] and 'Stop Record
   Deck' [RR] have been added, allowing any RDCatch record deck to be
   controlled via RML.  Information on the new RMLs can be found in 'rml.sxw'.

   RDLogEdit Runtime Counters.  Time counters have been added in the Edit Log
   screen in RDLogEdit that show the predicted running time of log events from
   the currently selected event to the next STOP and the end of the log, while
   highlighting multiple events will display the runtime of the selected

   Metadata Import Enhancements.  Support has been added for importing
   metadata from files generated by the BE AudioVault system (chunk type

Database Update:
   This version of Rivendell uses database schema version 162, 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.
