PGI v1.0, Kiryu
based on CRD 13736

Special Notes for PGI 1.0
============================================================ ===================

First and foremost, thank you for your patience! It took us a while to prepare this release but hopefully the long wait was worth it.

Besides all of the not so obvious (but countless) bug fixes there are several new major features that we introduce with this release. The biggest of which is the EPG handling. Most EPG code has been rewritten and the EPG data is now stored in a standard SQLite database. This means several cool things:

1) The EPG data is really persistent (provided you have HDD or USB device to store it) and will not be lost after a reboot
2) It is now possible to insert your own data into EPG database (think XMLTV, although some format conversion would be required)
3) PGI now supports EPG from more "non-standard" providers (see /var/etc/epg/private_epg_info file)
4) There is a new icon on the info banner with 'EPG' logo which appears when the box processes an EPG data stream
5) There is new addition to the web interface that allows you to fine-tune EPG fetching per each TP (including background EPG scanning)

As if all of that was not enough, there are many nice improvements to the channel list where you can see lots of additional information for each channel, like the current event / upcoming event (Yellow button), the remaining time till the end of the current or start of the next event as well as the Transponder/Provider information footer. The favourites list has been enhanced too. You can now see the Favourite group name at the top of the list, the channel numbering in EACH favourite group starts with #1 and the same channel in multiple favourite groups is handled better now.

There are MUCH MUCH more smaller (but important) enhancements and changes in this release most important of which are listed in the changelist below.
