I'm still here and as always not getting enough time to do all the things I want to DVBStreamer :-).
0.9 is still a little way off but here's a sneak peak at what will be included:
* Working XMLTV EPG and major speed improvement.
* SAP for multicast streams.
* Removal of 'output' command (confusing people) and replaced with manualfilter plugin.
* Selection of service by dvb id
Things I intend to add:
* CRID/TV Anytime information processing
* Adding PAT/PMT as first packets of a file:// MRL
