In May once MythTV 0.23 was released we reported on some of the early MythTV 0.24 plans, which included a new MythUI On-Screen Display, a mostly rewritten audio subsystem, and initial Blu-ray disc support. The first release candidate for MythTV 0.24 is now available five months later with these changes plus more.

While MythTV faces greater competition these days from XBMC, Enna, Boxee, and the like for ruling your home-theater PC software, MythTV 0.24 aims to up its competitiveness with some of the new v0.24 features. As said in the MythTV 0.24 RC1 announcement, "Just in time for holiday television specials, cold winter nights, and impressing all of your friends and family when they visit, the first Release Candidate for MythTV 0.24 is now available."

The new MythTV features mentioned with this development milestone include a completely rewritten and theme-able on-screen display, support for 24-bit audio and HD audio formats, initial Blu-ray disc support, experimental support for Broadcom Crystal HD hardware-accelerated video decoding, and other improvements.

The MythTV, MythPlugins, and MythThemes packages are all at v0.24 RC1 status.
