===== OpenPli status concerning the nightly 'unstable' builds. =====

Due to many questions of new OpenPLi users concerning the exact status of the nightly builds of OpenPLi we have created a status indicator which showes the actual status of the last nightly build.

As it seems, this isn't yet enough for many **new** users to make the step to flash the box with this image. The word **'unstable'** scares mainly new users, as the regular users of OpenPLi are aware of the specific status and the possible consequences.

If the status is '**GREEN**' you can flash your image without any major problems. '**YELLOW**' means that there are some unsolved issues which usually don't cause a crash. '**RED**' means that is is better not to use that current image. Wait until the status is back to '**GREEN**'.

The regular users of OpenPLi already know the exact meaning of 'unstable' in all nightly builds of OpenPLi which changes (almost) every day. This daily changes could be made due to minor or major changes in the earlier image. This could be as a solution of a earlier bug, an added feature or an update of some data like channelsettings, camversions and every other update you can imagine. In most cases these changes concernes only **E2** images as for the DM8000, DM800, DM500-HD, DM7025 and the VU+ duo boxes.
Allthough it seems that all changes effect all E2 images, this is not the fact. Some changes only effect the Dreambox images where other changes effect the VU+ duo boxes. Normally this is not being shown in the statusbar.

Much more information you can be found [[http://openpli.pli-images.org/wiki/WikiStart here.]].
The daily changes of the E2 images can be monitored [[http://openpli.git.sourceforge.net/git/gitweb-index.cgi here.]]

The E1 images will only change due to default cam updates and as long as we haven't yet decide to let it go.
If you have the need to create your own E1 or E2 image you can take a look at [[http://openpli.pli-images.org/wiki/DevelopmentEnvironment this page.]]

To take a look at the changes which were made for the E1 images, you can take a look at the [[http://openpli.pli-images.org/timeline timeline.]]

Last but not least, you can subscribe to our commit mailing lists, so you be informed of a change the minute we make it.
For E1 you can do this [[https://lists.sourceforge.net/lists/listinfo/openpli-svn-commits here]] and for E2, and OpenEmbedded you can subscribe [[https://lists.sourceforge.net/lists/listinfo/openpli-git-commits here.]]
