Support for new hardware has been added and a number of small code quality improvements have been made such as reducing polling with the use of PowerTOP.
But the real news is that with this release the project has announced a competition to come up with new themes for the next release. The deadline for theme submissions is February 1st, 2010; with the next MythTV release to follow March, 2010. The top three entries will receive Hauppauge hardware.
