Notes: ====== These are the release notes for LCDproc v0.5.5, the new stable version of LCDproc. This release includes some bug fixes as well as several 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). The t6963 driver's 'Size' option in LCDd.conf now has to be configured in pixels instead of characters. Fingerprint: ============ SHA1 (lcdproc-0.5.5.tar.gz) = 17547391b2bf9b61fd9f7dac74782e1cebdf34be 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. - On recent Linux distributions which use RPM style init scripts the script init-LCDd.rpm hangs because it incorrectly references a pid file that is not created. Workaround: Remove the line '# pidfile: /var/run/LCDd.pid'.
