Updated RFLibs & new scripts coming soon

It's been a while since I posted anything here, but I have been working here and there on getting some work done on mythtv. Over the next few weeks, I'm hoping to post some updates and new scripts. A few things I've got coming include an updated version of irwatch, a new and improved alpha release of the mythimon client, and some stuff for controlling a Sharp Aquos TV via the serial port interface.

All of these scripts are based in part around my RFLibs set of perl modules. I posted a release of RFLibs last year. Since then, I've made a lot of changes to those scripts. While some of the modules only experienced minor changes or the addition of new functions only, other modules (especially the imon releated modules) experienced a considerable redesign.

As a result of these changes, if you had previously made use of my RFLibs modules in some of your own scripts, you might find that they no longer work with the new versions. I wish I could have avoided doing so, but many of the changes were necessary. I'm hoping things are in a much more stable state now, but still no guarantees.

So for now, I'm going to make the new versions of the modules available for download. However, note that if you are currently using the old mythimon (alpha 1) or irwatch (version 1) clients, you cannot use these new versions with those scripts (you need to wait for the upcoming announcment of new versions of those scripts), so don't put these in place just yet.
