On behalf of the entire Rivendell development team, I'm pleased to
announce the availability of the third public beta release of the next
major version of Rivendell, v4.0.0beta2. Rivendell is a full-featured radio
automation system targeted for use in professional broadcast
environments. It is available under the GNU General Public License
version 2.

From the 'NEWS' file:
*** snip snip ***
   Third beta release of Rivendell v4.x. Be sure to read the INSTALL
   document, as major changes in software dependencies have occurred.

Major Changes Between v3.x and v4.x:
   Qt Toolkit. Rivendell v4.x uses and is fully compatibile with major
   version 5 of Qt (Qt5). See the INSTALL documents for specifics.

   MySQL Compatibility. Rivendell v4.x aims for full compatibility with
   MySQL 8.0 and earlier versions in their default installation

   RDAirPlay. The rdairplay(1) has been completely overhauled, and now
   supports dynamic resizeability as well as a revamped level metering

   RDPanel. The rdpanel(1) now supports dynamic resizing.

Database Update:
   This version of Rivendell uses database schema version 350, and will
   automatically upgrade any earlier versions. To see the current schema
   version prior to upgrade, see RDAdmin->SystemInfo.

   Be sure to run 'rddbmgr --modify' (as root) immediately after upgrading
   to allow any necessary changes to the database schema to be applied.
