Release Notes: This release features a52dec as the default decoder for AC3 sound for better quality, the possibility for Windows NT/2000/XP users to read DVDs without Administrator privileges, a fix for a hangup in the esd plugin, and fixes for a few segfaults.
Release Notes: A brand new interface for iPaq familiar Linux, support for Qt/Embedded, major enhancements to the BeOS port, a new option for select which interface to use for multicast streams, and RTP input support. A fix for the LPCM decoder on big-endian machines was added, along with the ability to read streams from VLS 0.4.0, and A/52 from American television. It is still possible to read from VLC 0.3.x with the --vls-backwards-compat option. This version was linked with libdvdcss 1.2.3, allowing Win32 users to read DVDs in non-administrator mode. Some other Win32 bugs were also fixed.
Release Notes: VLC can now read AVI files created with ffmpeg. Binary packages are linked with libdvdcss 1.2.2, which allows you to read DVDs on an RPC2 drive even when there is a region mismatch. The thread implementation, the IPv6 support, and the message queue were fixed in the Win32 port, and DVD subtitles are now rendered with the right colours under MacOS X.
Release Notes: This release eventually fixes the compatibility issue with QuickTime 6 under MacOS X. It also includes fixes for the HTTP input and for various memory leaks; the BeOS interface was improved, and a --mtu option was added to support UDP packets bigger than 1500 bytes.
Release Notes: Support for multicast IPv6 was added, as well as new deinterlacing plugins. A lot of bugs were fixed, including the GTK+ Preferences crash, subtitle rendering, BeOS software rendering, MacOS X language menus, and the Win32 vlc_cond_wait implementation.
Release Notes: This version supports AVI files with AC3 audio, and features additional MMX optimizations in the video decoder. The Win32 interface was improved with new icons and an eject button. Also, many fixes were checked in for slanted subtitles, bad colors in RGB mode, non-ASCII characters in MacOS X filenames, a playlist crash under BeOS, a memory leak in the Win32 port, and a few remaining crashes.
Release Notes: MPEG-4/DivX/OpenDivX video and MP3 audio support (using ffmpeg and libmad) were added. The Win32 port now supports HTTP and IPv6, the FreeBSD port has VCD support, the MacOS X was greatly improved, and all interface messages are now internationalized. Also, all known causes of crashes were fixed.
Release Notes: This releases fixes major issues discovered in 0.3.0. Compilation fixes were added for various platforms. Startup crashes were fixed under Solaris and Un*x with Gtk+, aspect ratio is now correct under MacOS X, BeOS supports overlay for NVidia cards and subtitles in software mode, and the Win32 interface does not get stuck under Win2k. Lots of bugs were fixed in the input layer, especially in the satellite plugin. Crashes in AltiVec plugins were also fixed.
Release Notes: This release features a new graphical configuration engine, a new input layer, a new video output engine with speed increases up to 40%, i18n support (fr, jp, ru, nl, no), and many bugfixes, especially in the audio output. Enhancements include IPv6 support, VCD on MacOS X, multicast on Win32 and networking on BeOS. There are also a few new plugins: infrared control, file logger, Win32 interface, WinTV Nova, libmad MPEG decoder, liba52 AC3 decoder, MGA video driver, ASCII art, video filters (deinterlacing, rotation, distort, image wall), aRts daemon, and Win32 waveOut.
Release Notes: The program now uses a new generic buffer manager, and optimized memcpy routines depending on the CPU. The MacOS X port now has network input, the BeOS port supports CPU type detection, and the Linux port features DVD raw device access. New modules include a libmad audio decoder and an aRts audio output plugin.
