Happy Birthday to the Customised Firmware! Believe it or not, it's a year today since I released the first version of the Customised Firmware. The first version only had a few packages and a very basic example web interface and required at least some familiarity with the command line. Some things from it are still recognisable today; the package management system was there right from the start for example. At the beginning, some people questioned what could be done (by legal means) with a box that encrypts all of its recordings. We have the answer now - plenty! I've searched through the forums to compile a list of key milestones during the past year and here it is. Sincere apologies if I've missed anything or anyone out - there are a lot of forum posts on here - please let me know and I'll update the list!
