On behalf of the entire Rivendell development team, I'm pleased to announce the availability of Rivendell v2.3.0.  Rivendell is a full-featured radio automation system targeted for use in professional broadcast environments. It is available under the GNU General Public License.

From the NEWS file:

If upgrading from a v1.x version of Rivendell, be sure to read the
'UPGRADING' file before proceeding for important information.

   RDCartSlots Module.  A new Rivendell module has been added that is
   optimized for use in busy live assist environments, along with four
   new RMLs ('Load Slot' ['DL'], 'Play Slot' ['DP'], 'Stop Slot' ['DS']
   and 'Execute Breakaway' ['DX']) for automating its operation.

   RDAirPlay Enhancements.  A set of buttons for quickly locating a given
   hour has been added to the Full Log widget, enabled by checking the
   'Show Hour Selector' box in RDAdmin->ManageHost->RDAirPlay.

   JACK Enhancements.  It is now possible to specify the command-line
   used to start jackd(8) and a list of clients to start when
   starting the Rivendell service.  See RDAdmin->ManageHosts->JackSettings.

   Switcher/GPIO Device Support.  Added support for the Sine Systems ACU-1
   switcher.  See 'SWITCHERS.txt' for details.

   Cue Output Assignments.  Cue output assignments for all modules
   except RDAirPlay have now been consolidated into one setting in

   Multiple bug fixes.  See the ChangeLog for details.

Database Update:
   This version of Rivendell uses database schema version 213, 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.
