On behalf of the entire Rivendell development team, I'm pleased to
announce the availability of the first public beta release of the next
major version of Rivendell, v4.0.0beta1. 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:

   Second 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:

   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

Database Update:

   automatically upgrade any earlier versions. To see the current schema
