The Pocket PC port is complete. New plugins include a picture-in-picture system, an ActiveX plugin for Internet Explorer, and a built-in screenshot taker.
Release Notes: This release resolves a crash with ODML AVI files and fixes many bugs such as the multi-channel audio output and DV/MPEG input on Win32, sub-picture scaling, autodetection of VCD and SVCD binary files, and aspect ratio in the ffmpeg encoder. A few new features were also added, such as SSL support in the HTTP stream output and HTTP interface, and support for playlist group announcements.
Release Notes: This release added support for many new formats (WMV3 under Windows only, Vobsub, DVB subtitles, and JPEG) as well as new input and output methods (screen capture, Windows Media Server RTSP, and OpenGL).
