On behalf of the entire Rivendell development team, I'm pleased to announce the availability of Rivendell v2.1.4.  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:

   This is a maintenance release of Rivendell.  Some of the issues
   addressed include:

   RDCatch XLoad Wildcards.  Several new wildcards and meta-characters
   have been added for specifying URLs in RDCatch, including:
     $e -- Day of the month, space padded ( 1 - 12)
     $E -- Day of the month, unpadded (1 - 12)
     ^ --  Convert value indicated by following format character to all
     $ --  Convert the initial character of the value indicated by the
           following format character to uppercase.
   A complete list of wildcards can be found in 'docs/datetime_wildcards.txt'.

   HPI Compatibility.  Updated HPI subsystem to work with the latest
   AudioScience driver versions (v4.10.x).

   RDLibrary Reports.  Fixed a problem where generated reports would
   not accurately reflect the current cart filters.

   A detailed list of all bugfixes can be found in the ChangeLog.

Database Update:
   This version of Rivendell uses database schema version 205, 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.
