Rygel 0.5.0 (Mind the Baby) is out!

The first release in the unstable 0.5.x series. Changes since 0.4.6
that were not provided by any subsequent 0.4.x releases:

- New URI generation scheme that avoids problematic characters which
makes some crappy renderers choke.
- Allow creation of new media items and tranfering data into existing
ones (upload). This is relavent to, and works for both MediaExport and
Tracker.
- Implement GetTransferProgress and StopTransferResource actions.
- Advertise:
  - support for connection stalling.
  - live response to be sender-paced.
- Rewrite SearchCriteria parser to make it more reliable.
- Tracker:
  - Port to the Tracker 0.7 APIs.
  - Provide richer & more intuitive media hierarchy.
  - Signal container update on changes to subjects.
  - Act on config options allowing user to define which categories to
share.
  - Support for search by URI.
  - Descriptive IDs for containers.
- MediaExport
  - Implement custom search that translates to an SQLite query and
therefore performs much faster than before.
  - Print message on console when harvesting is done.
  - Don't modify DB if harvester was cancelled.
  - Cancel harvester before starting new one.
- Lots of non-functional improvements and fixes.

What is Rygel?

Rygel is a collection of DLNA (UPnP AV) services (devices in UPnP
speak), implemented through a plug-in mechanism. UPnP in simplest
words is a set of protocols that defines how different devices on a
home network can seamlessly (without or with minimum configuration)
communicate with each other. UPnP AV defines how multimedia systems
could be built on top of that. DLNA in simple words is a long list of
rules that implementers must comply to if they want to achieve
interoperability with other implementations in the market.
