Rygel 0.8.2 (A Not So Simple Plan)

Rygel 0.8.2 (A Not So Simple Plan) is out!

Changes since 0.8.1:

- 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.
- 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.
  - URI escape metadata titles for IDs to correctly handle titles that have
    charachters like ',' and ':' in them.
  - Some non-functional changes.
- MediaExport:
  - Proper default values for item metdata. This fixes the misterious "0" Album
    and Artist on XBox.
  - Handle requests for audio and image item types, not just music and pictures.
- Localization:
  - Add Italian translation.
  - Add Catalan translation.
  - Add Hebrew translation.
  - Update Estonian translation.
  - Update Lithuanian translation.
  - Update Portuguese translation.
  - Update Greek translation.
  - Update Dutch translation.
  - Update Polish translation.
  - Update Japanese translation.
  - Update Hungarian translation.
  - Update French translation.
  - Update Spanish translation.
  - Update Korean 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.
