-changed emu share limits behaviour, <1.3.0 an emu matched a F entry limit with {caid:ident:n}, for any nonzero ident. >=1.3.0, an emu only matches {caid:0:n}
-added '-l' cmdline option, to disable all 'self-learning' stuff. This option might avoid problems with irdeto smartcards
-ports 15000-15004 and port 14000 are now gone. Use 16000 and 16001 (html) instead

-irdeto emu emm added
-seca emu added
-initialise all cards before starting to decode, ensures immediate success on startup

-faster client ecm handling (new client logon no longer delays requests of existing clients)
-command-based info interface on port 16000
-web info interface on port 16001
(As of now getting info from ports 15000-15004 is deprecated. This interface will be removed in the next release.)
-newcamd stealth mode added
-removed <1.1.1 backward compatibility code from share protocol, to allow full use of optimisations introduced in 1.1.1
-when CCcam was connecting to a share it kept on connecting on same ip, not very good when a dyndns address was in the config
-ecm request cache didn't work in all situations, caching fixed and improved.
-emm didn't always work on demuxapi systems (e.g. relook, mutant). Fixed.
-WARNING: F: entry syntax changed, check and update your CCcam.cfg; added parameters to allow emusharing and emm, per client

-when a share doesn't work for a certain channel, skip aliases of that share for that channel
(aliases are the same cards shared through different routes, they have equal nodeID_shareID at the end of their line in the output on port 15002)
-ignore '0' providerids on seca cards
-nagra2 emu fix for some providers
-fixed occasional *** emm freeze
-allow multiple L: entries to connect to different cards on the same camd3 server/port

-emu's can be shared one hop down only
-cards can be shared multiple hops down
-each CCcam node has a unique nodeid
-routes to a card are given with nodelists
-when a card is reachable through multiple routes, each unique route will be available as individual share
******* with nodeid 'abc' in the routelist are never sent to client with nodeid 'abc', to avoid route loops
-watch your shares, including full routelist, on port 15002
-start with -h to view available commandline options
-syslog support, start with -v for more verbosity
-start with -d to run in foreground, and log to console instead of syslog
-inserted cards (in either available reader) start working right away
-all used config and key files are re-read on change, never need to restart CCcam
