E2 Jade release notes

PLi® Enigma2 PLi® Jade Images Suite 20080713 Rev.5335

In memorial to our Danish friend Gaj1, rest in peace Johnny!

A new Enigma2 PLi® Dreambox release is available for download.

The Original Enigma2 PLi® Jade suite contains the following images:


See below for what's New, Fixed & Features since the initial PLi® Iolite release

Or have a look at the MovieClip presentation on or at YouTube...

We think it is important to have a PLi® image twice a year available in summer and winter.

Therefore, we have decided to make a steady Release Candidate public.
As it is a steady Release Candidate, you might run into some unknown bugs.

Please report any issues or bugs on our forum, so we can fix it before the final release of Jade.

- UPnP mediaserver / client plugins

- Some CryptoInfo converter types and functionality added
- Cable ScanSetup and fixes:
* Cable transponder 'blind'-scan: make sure we don't miss transponders when we receive incomplete lines in our dataAvail callback
* Default cable scan 'steps' instead of 'bands', 'bands' doesn't find all transponders on Dutch Cablenetwork
- Don't create a 'largefile' ext3 fs on a small (<=4GB ) device, that wouldn't allow us to e.g. install a lot of picons on a relatively small CF

* (Imdb plugin installs itself into this menu)
- Don't create 'largefile' fs on small CF device
- Fixed default Picon
- RecordTimer (and parseEvent): fallback to the extended description, when an event doesn't have a short description
- Join short/extended description, when the short description is so long that it looks like a situation where short and extended contain parts of a single full description
- Upgrade of TuxTXT from the 32 bit framebuffer to TuxTXT v1.99
- Several TuxTXT bug fixes
- Enable Teletext caching
* (when caching mode is enabled, VBI teletext is not possible)
