The xawtv project started as TV application for Linux in the 90-ies. Later on more apps and tools such as a teletext browser where added. There are two major releases:
- The 3.x versions. They use the xaw (Athena) and Motif toolkit and handle analog TV only.
- The 4.x development tree (no release so far). It uses the gtk toolkit and supports digital TV (aka DVB) too.
