Thanks to Nektarios K. Papadopoulos <>
for the report and patch.
* added configure option and adapted the code to completely
supress all log output
* added configure option and adapted the code to supress
debug output

for the patch.
* bug 1524468 (startup in daemon mode fails) does no longer occur
after the integration of libupnp 1.4.x sources
* fixed bug 1292295 (string conversion was failing on 64bit platforms)
* fixed issue with ContainerUpdateIDs (were not sent out along with
accepted subscription)
* fixed issue where some directories could not be browsed (filesystem
browser). It turned out that we forgot to convert the filenames
to UTF-8, as the result invalid characters made their way into
the XML that was feeded to the browser.
* improved illegal character conversion handling - in case iconv
fails we will pad the rest of the name string with "?" and print
out the failed name in the console.
* we now try to determine the default import charsets by looking
at the system locale.
* implemented track number metadata extraction (feature request
1430799). track numbers are now extracted via id3lib/taglib and
can also be used in the import script. import.js has been adapted

will never be added to the database - we do not want the user to
accidentally share it on the network since it may contain
security sensitive data
* tomb-install is no longer needed, the server will automatically create
a default ~/.mediatomb/config.xml file if there is none
* the database tables will be created automatically if they don't
* adapted configure script to correctly set flags for linkers that
use the --as-needed option
* the "PC Directory" isn't changeable via the UI anymore to ensure a
correct view of the "PC Directory"
* lookups in the database are now done with hashes, which should make
many things faster, especially the adding
* changed the database field "location" from varchar(255) to text to
allow urls and locations of unlimited size
* created a new theme for the UI
* added support for "blind" .srt requests - some renderers like the
DSM320 will blindly request the url provided via browse, replacing
and found file extension with .srt, we will look for the .srt file
in the directory where the original media is located, using the
same filename, but with the .srt extension
* created XML schema for "config.xml" to provide the possiblity of
validating the configuration
* added fallback if js is not available - there is a builtin feature
to create a default virtual layout now; config.xml has got an
option to select the virtual-layout type, it can be builting, js or
* added charset option to the import script, it is not possible to
specify the script encoding
* we now validate filesystem, metadata and scripting charsets upon
* added a special option that allows limiting title and description
lengths in UPnP browse replies to a specified length; this was
necessary to work around a bug in the TG100 that has problems
browsing items where title length exceeds 101 characters.
* import.js can now specify the upnp class of the last container in the
* all items within a container which upnp class is set to
object.container.album.musicAlbum will automatically be sorted by
track number.

for NAS vendors to integrate the server into their web UI

be extracted and filled by the library.

* Added a command line option to import media upon server launch.
* Added target directory option to tomb-install, cleaned up a few
v0.7.1 17.04.2005 D-Link DSM-320 fix
* Mappings of mime-types to upnp classes are now configurable.
Actually this is how we solved the DSM-320 problem - they
crashed if upnp class of items was different than what the
DSM expected.
* tomb-install now creates the database and configuration file
from templates (was hardcoded); also sets the name of the server
individually for each user (host / username)
* Improved handling of configuration, if non critical options are
missing we are now setting default values.
v0.7 14.04.2005 First release
* The changelog does not start at day 0, updates will be made
starting from this release.
