According to what I have read, for example here the OP is not really correct. 1. Germany has had this system running since 2009. 2. Denmark will start using it from April 2011. 3. Sweden is just looking at having this kind of a solution. And for all three, it is / will be only complimentary to regular stamps.

Comment: For the first time ever with Chrome, printing A4! (Score 0, Redundant) 292

I just tried to print to my printer loaded with A4-papers. It worked! Finally. This has not worked until now (forced letter). This is very common with software developed in the US, they seem to forget/not care/not being aware of that there are other countries in the world.I think most countries in the world use A4.

kormoc writes "The new release has lots of new stuff, notably: autodiscovery (less manual configuration of new front-ends), storage groups (no need for LVM/etc), support for multiple recordings on one DVB/ATSC multiplex, a couple of new plugins, some new deinterlacing / video display options, and many, many other things. The release notes page in the wiki has the list of what's changed, but it's currently a couple thousand checkins out of date. Grab the release from the download section and please at least try to read the docs before asking questions. The binary packages should hopefully be updated to 0.21 soon."
