    Release Notes: This release adds capturing of USB audio (e.g., with Pinnacle PCTV USB2), fixes a scantv terminal emulator bug (it now uses the terminal emulator setting when scantv starts) and a scantv vbi bug (if /dev/vbi doesn't exist, it tries /dev/vbi0), uses the configuration settings of the video device when running scantv, and works around scantv's "/dev/vbi0: Device or resource busy" bug.
