New VDR Version 1.5.17 RC2 -- The Digital Video Recorder for Linux

So not the final version 1.6 as I opposed here, but yet another release of the fine VDR.

Here's the list of changes from the release note:
- Updated the Swedish OSD texts (thanks to Tomas Berglund).
- Made the 'pic2mpg' script of the 'pictures' plugin work with uppercase filename
extensions and relative paths (thanks to Stefan Wagner for reporting this one).
- Updated the Romanian OSD texts (thanks to Lucian Muresan).
- Updated the Dutch OSD texts (thanks to Johan Schuring).
- Stripping control codes 0x86 and 0x87 from SI strings.
- Updated French language texts (thanks to Jean-Claude Repetto).
- Fixed handling 3 and 4 byte UTF-8 symbols in Utf8CharGet() (thanks to Andreas
Mair).
- Fixed a crash in cFreetypeFont::DrawText() if an unknown symbol is encountered
(thanks to Tobias Grimm). Unknown symbols are replaced with a '?'.
- Updated the Slovenian OSD texts (thanks to Matjaz Thaler).
- Updated the Czech OSD texts (thanks to Vladimír Bárta and Jiri Dobry).
- Updated the Turkish OSD texts (thanks to Oktay Yolgeçen).
- The 'plugins' target in the Makefile now returns an error exit code if one of the
plugins failed to compile (suggested by Tobias Grimm).
- Rendering the non-breaking space symbol as a blank (thanks to Tobias Grimm).
- Changed the default character set for SI data from ISO6937 (as required by the DVB
standard ETSI EN 300 468) to ISO-8859-9, in order to work around the stupidity of
some providers, who actually use ISO-8859-9, but fail to correctly announce that.
As you can see, these are rather smallish updates and fixes. Nothing dramatic in my eyes.
