Rygel 0.9.1 (Liars, Guns and Money)

Rygel 0.9.1 (Liars, Guns and Money) is out!!

A new release in the current unstable 0.9.x series for upcoming GNOME 2.91.1

- Don't assume user's config folder to be present everywhere. This assumption is
  only true for modern (free)desktops and fails us badly on headless machines.
- Properly require automake 1.11.
- Custom rule to remove .stamp files to enforce rebuild from vala sources.
- Destroy the device list before quiting main loop. For some reason, the SSDP
  'BYE' message doesn't get sent out for all devices before rygel exits. This
  change makes sending of these packet a lot more (could actually be 100%)
- Tracker:
  - Make sure we only expose items that are either explicity marked to be shared
    over UPnP network or not marked at all.
  - Assume UPnP-created items to be shared. We create items on demand from UPnP
    clients so its logical to assume that the client would want it to be
    available on the UPnP network immediately after their creation.
  - Some non-functional changes.
  - URI escape metadata titles for IDs to correctly handle titles that have
    charachters like ',' and ':' in them.
- Localization:
  - Update Slovenian translation.
  - Update Korean translation.
  - Update Estonian translation.

What is Rygel?

Rygel is a collection of DLNA (UPnP AV) services implemented through a plug-in
mechanism. UPnP in simplest words is a set of protocols that defines how
different devices on a home network can seamlessly (without or with minimum
configuration) communicate with each other. UPnP AV defines how multimedia
systems could be built on top of that. DLNA in simple words is a long list of
rules that implementers must comply to if they want to achieve interoperability
with other implementations in the market.
