Release Notes: This version contains important fixes, usability improvements, and additional features. The Win32 frontend has been removed and placed into its own module. Work on the Win32 port is moving along nicely, and should be ready for the 1.0 release.
No changes have been submitted for this release.
Release Notes: Upgrading is highly recommended, as this release fixes problems with image displaying for the XVideo driver and decoding of WMA streams.
Release Notes: Some possible deadlock conditions have been fixed, including one that would nearly always occur when using ALSA audio output. DVD still menus should be working again. There are lots of minor bugfixes too.
Release Notes: This version adds support for Matroska, Flash video, IFF, and Sierra VMD files, as well as tracker music formats (MOD/S3M/XM/IT/etc.). New decoders include Sierra video, Flash Video, Duck TrueMotion v1, 8BPS, MZSH, ZLIB, ASV1,2, ATI VCR1,and Real Video 2.0. Network drivers (secure HTTP, MMS, RTP/UDP) and video drivers (SDL and PGX32) have also been improved and enhanced, and there is a new video driver for CACA output (colored ASCII art).
Release Notes: This is a hotfix for some bugs in xine-lib 1-rc3. If you have experienced segmentation faults or xine would hang after upgrading your Linux kernel, upgrading to this version may help. Additionally, some minor features were added, including support for new subtitle formats, raw AAC files, an updated Win32 port, and an autohide function for indefinite subtitles.
Release Notes: This is a maintenance release. Many bugs have been fixed, most of the code has been reviewed and cleaned up, and many little details are improved. Compared to 1-rc2, you'll probably notice much smoother subtitles, smaller startup delay, and improved stability.
Release Notes: This release comes with built-in support for S(X)VCD navigation (ie. Video CD menus), better handling of filenames that contain "#" or "%" characters, and it now supports hardware accelerated MPEG decoding via XvMC. Additionally, a security hole in the "#save" MRL option was fixed so that files can now only be saved into an explicitly specified directory.
Release Notes: This quick update contains a file (xine_encoder.c) that was missing in the 1-rc0 release. This would make compilation fail if DXR3 support was enabled. Additionally, broken MPEG files don't make xine abort any longer.
Release Notes: As there are no more required features for the official 1.0 release, the developers consider this release to be out of beta. Development is now focused on fixing the remaining bugs and updating documentation. As usual, there have been both bugfixes and new features. New features include a new "broadcast" mode (mirror audio/video on two, or possibly more, xine instances on the same network) and an advanced deinterlacer based on the tvtime project.
