XMLTV is a set of utilities to manage your TV viewing. They work with TV listings stored in the XMLTV format, which is based on XML.

The idea of XMLTV is to separate out the backend (getting the listings) from the frontend (displaying them for the user), and to implement useful operations like picking out your favourite programmes as filters that read and write XML documents.

At present there are backends grabbing TV listings for Canada, the USA, Britain and Ireland, Germany, Austria, Finland, Spain, the Netherlands, Hungary, Denmark, Japan, Sweden, France, Norway, and Romania.

There are filters to sort the listings by date, to remove shows that have already been broadcast, and a couple of programmes to organize your viewing by storing preferences of what shows you watch. There are a couple of backends to produce printed output.

What's New in This Release:
This release includes new grabbers for Croatia and Switzerland and miscellaneous updates to many different grabbers, including a fix for the tv_grab_na_dd startime problem.
