Notes: These are the release notes for LCDproc v0.5.4, the new stable version of LCDproc. This release includes a lot of bug fixes as well as several new and updated drivers. See below for a brief list or the file ChangeLog for a more comprehensive one. The CFontz633 driver has been deprecated and will output a warning about this on start-up. It will be removed after this release. Please use the CFontzPacket driver instead (setting Model=633 in LCDd.conf). Fingerprint: ------------ SHA1 (lcdproc-0.5.4.tar.gz) = dd20ecbc991f11f9b3fa5526bec2ac8b7081be5f Known bugs: ----------- - If vBars are used together with ICON_BLOCK_FILLED on the same screen and that icon is implemented as a custom char, it sometimes is replaced with a non full block from the vBar. - On Solaris the mtc_s16209x driver fails to compile. Configure LCDproc to exclude this driver. - The server config file LCDd.conf is not installed if 'make install-server' is used to install only the server without the clients. - The svga drivers fails to install. If you have svgalib installed but don't use this driver, configure LCDproc to exclude this driver.
