The VDR Menuorg Plug-in

The Menuorg plug-in for VDR allows you to reorganize VDR's main menu. System menu items and plug-in main menu entries can be rearranged and organized into sub menus. Additionally it allows you to create custom menu items for starting external shell commands.

The Menuorg plug-in was developed to replace the Submenu plug-in, which not seems to be supported anymore. The XML configuration file format was borrowed from the Setup plugin. Nevertheless Menuorg has completely been built from scratch.

Menuorg requires VDR to be modified with the enclosed patch. In contrast to the Submenu and Setup plug-ins, this patch is far less intrusive. The patch was explicitly designed, to be ABI neutral. This means, applying it, does not make VDR binary imcomaptible to other plug-ins, so there's no need to recompile all plug-ins.
