Remove extraneous class wrapper action.action. Start to regroup listformat mapping (pls-url → m3u-fn rewrites). Will need some heuristics, as depending just on the channel.listformat assumption won't work in practice (some .pls servers actually host direct server links, or occasionally .m3u references even). Currently does nothing, just returns the pls/etc URL. check-in: ea628d6426 user: mario tags: trunk

This is a short summary for distribution package maintainers.
For regular end-user documentation please see the help/ pages.



Structural changes from 2.1.5 onwards (2015-04-xx)
--------------------------------------------------

 → There's a new `bin` script. It's a lightweight invocation
   wrapper, intended to be installed as /usr/bin/streamtuner2

---------

 → Help files still need to go to share/docs/streamtuner2/help/
   unless you patch the source.

 → *.desktop as usual

 → and `logo.png` is the pixmap/app icon


Removed
-------

Most plugin PNGs may have been removed already. (Embedded
binary data may violate some distro guidelines(?), but hey,
fewer files are fewer files!)

And the streamtuner2.png logo is now source-embedded instead,
the `logo.py` module provides a `logo.png` base64-string.

The old `gtk2.xml` file is gone. It probably became obsolete
a long while back. The gtk3.xml is instead runtime-patched
to work with PyGTK/gtk2.


Dependencies
------------

If possible, make ST2 dependend on Python2 -or- Python3.
It's not yet practical, and probably against distro standards,
and only APT could so anyway. But if feasible...

Also, hard dependencies are meanwhile:

  - gtk (>= 2.16)
  - pygtk                           [or python-gi for python3]
  - python-requests (>> 1.2.0)
  - python-pyquery    [though most plugins would work without]
  - and its implied python-lxml

Optional dependencies (just affects a single plugin, which
semi-gracefully disables itself):

  - python-keybinder   [for global_key]

FPM/XPM packaging
-----------------

You may have noticed (and scoffed at ;) the newer packaging
method. It's now using http://fossil.include-once.org/xpm/
with the `src` filter. (That's what the meta comment blocks
in the source modules were always meant for.)

Simplifies DEB and RPM packaging, as well as PYZ generation.
(They're all workable, but decidedly rather crude packages.
So yes, proper distro packages are very much still needed.)
