MythTV Logo After more than six months of development since the release of version 0.22, the MythTV developers have announced the availability of version 0.23 of their open source digital video recorder (DVR). The latest stable release of the media centre for Linux includes a number of updates and new features, such as a new event system and brand new python bindings.

MythTV 0.23 now features a beta of the MythNetvision internet video plug-in, newly re-synced FFmpeg libraries and the addition of a new themes, Arclight and Childish. Other changes include a 15% faster software H.264 decoder, fixes for analogue scanning and rewritten audio code, including simplified configuration, multi-channel up-mixing and automatic re-sampling. The developers say that they are now working towards MythTV 0.24, which should include a new MythUI on-screen display (OSD), Blu-ray disc and disc structure playback, a nearly completely rewritten audio subsystem capable of handling 24 and 32 bit audio as well as up to 8 channels of output, and several other performance improvements.

More details about the release, including a full list of changes and updates, can be found in the release announcement and release ntoes on the MythTV wiki. MythTV 0.23 is available to download from the project's FTP site. MythTV is released under the GNU General Public License (GPL).

Users wanting to take a closer look at MythTV, or set up their own dedicated MythTV system, may be interested in a tailor-made distribution, such as KnoppMyth, MiniMyth and Mythbuntu.
