    26   * Build fixes.
    27   * Fix HDMV subtitle channel.
    28   * FFmpeg compatibility fixes.
    29   * Some colour format conversion fixes.
    30   * Fix RealVideo re-ordered PTS: pass through, let the decoder re-order it.
    31   * Fix some problems with COOK audio.
    32 
    33 xine-lib (1.2.4) 2013-09-24
    34   * Some VAAPI plugin fixes (build, image size changes).
    35   * ffmpeg multi-channel playback fixes:
    36     - Handle channel configuration changes sooner.
    37     - Generic layout if none provided; follow user changes.
    38     - Defer opening output if nothing to play.
    39     - Don't re-open with identical settings.
    40     - Don't use the bits-per-sample value (may not match decoder output).
    41   * ffmpeg video fixes:
    42     - Default to square pixels, avoiding black bars & unnecessary scaling.
    43     - Avoid CODEC_FLAG_EMU_EDGE (and some possible segfaults).
    44     - Use MPEG2VIDEO.
    45   * OpenGL2 output: don't render into invalid drawable.

    81   * Various build fixes for Windows.
    82 
    83 xine-lib (1.2.1) 2012-02-04
    84   * The "I'm at Tyneside LUG" release.
    85   * Enable PulseAudio, JACK and VDPAU on the Hurd.
    86   * Rewrite of VDPAU OSD handling.
    87   * sndio plugin is now buildable.
    88   * Various bug fixes.
    89 
    90 xine-lib (1.2.0) 2012-01-01
    91   * Add support for VDR.
    92   * Add support for VDPAU.
    93   * xine-config is deprecated in favour of pkg-config libxine.
    94     Use "pkgconfig --variable=foo libxine" where you previously used
    95     "xine-config --foo".
    96   * Reorder and modify public structures to reduce the holes caused by padding
    97     especially on 64-bit architectures.
    98   * Remove the buttons array from video_overlay, as the feature linked to that
    99     was never implemented. This change reduces by 10MB the memory usage of
   100     xine-lib during playback (1/3 of the memory used while playing an mp3).
   101   * Update libmpcdec (formerly libmusepack) to version 1.2.6 (newer than the
   102     previous Subversion snapshot) and contextually move it to
   103     contrib/libmpcdec to separate from xine's own code.
   104   * Save plugins' cache in the defined cache home directory as per XDG Base
   105     Directory Specification.
   106   * Use XDG-defined cache home directory for cddb cache.
   107   * Use XDG-defined cache home directory for win32codecs fake registry.
   108   * Use XDG-defined data directories to look up fonts files both while using
   109     FreeType2 and the standard bitmap fonts for OSD.
   110   * Replace internal libdts 0.0.2 with libdca 0.0.5, and contextually move it
   111     to contrib/libdca to separate from xine's own code.
   112   * Add another message code to allow for auth prompts. Previously, it was
   113     not possible to distinguish between '401 Authentication Required' and
   114     '403 Forbidden'.
   115   * Merge the demuxer and the decoder for NSF files in a combined plugin.
   116   * Move modplug demuxing to its own plugin. This way, binary distributions
   117     can make it optional as it requires quite a bit of CPU time during
   118     initialisation, even for audio files that nothing have to do with modplug.
   119   * Collapse the Ogg demuxer, and the Theora, Vorbis and Speex decoders in the
   120     same 'xiph' plugin.
   121   * Remove aRTs output plugin; ALSA's DMix can allow both xine and aRTs to
   122     access the audio device at the same time for Linux, and if other
   123     operating systems lack a proper software mixing facility you can
   124     consider alternative daemons. Note: aRTs will not be present in KDE 4.
   125   * Convert the FAQ and the Hacker's Guide from DocBook SGML to DocBook 4.4
   126     XML, and the figures from fig files to SVG files.
   127   * The XML parser no longer ignores <?...?> elements.
   128     Such elements are handled as if they were after the XML content for
   129     compatibility reasons, though they must appear before it.
   130   * The XML parser handles CDATA elements.
   131   * Text handling within XML is improved.
   132   * DVB subtitles' opacity is now controllable.
   133   * Extend DVB subtitling capabilities. (Still bitmap-only.)
   134   * The internal copies of libcdio and libvcd are no longer present,
   135     you need to use an installed copy of them if you want VCD support.
   136   * Replace get_* functions for literals with direct string access.
   137   * Use default dispose() functions when they just need to call free() in
   138     various plugins.
   139   * Rename METHOD_BY_EXTENSION to METHOD_BY_MRL as it also checks prefixes
   140     for specific input protocols.
   141   * Check for supported extensions before opening the plugin and remove
   142     redundant core from plugins.
   143   * Use libavutil-provided implementations for CRC, SHA1 and BASE64 algorithms,
   144     this makes use of libavutil even outside the FFmpeg decoding plugin,
   145     but avoid duplication of algorithms between different plugins.
   146   * Use av_mallocz() when xine_xmalloc_aligned() wouldn't be needed.
   147   * FFmpeg is now required as an external dependency; if you want to build
   148     xine-lib from source, please download a copy of FFmpeg from their SVN
   149     server.
   150   * Remove SyncFB video output plugin, the kernel module needed is no more
   151     active and thus it's no more usable. If you were using SyncFB somehow,
   152     please use DirectFB or VIDIX instead.
   153   * The Xv and XxMC video output plugins now support Xv port selection via
   154     two methods: port number and port type (currently "any", "overlay" and
   155     "textured video"). Port number takes precedence; the plugins will fall
   156     back on another port of the same type (if a type was specified) then on
   157     whatever they can find.
   158     XvMC does not support port selection at present.
   159   * Report more video output capabilities via (port)->get_capabilities():
   160     colour controls, zooming, colour keying.
   161 
   162 xine-lib (1.1.22) ????-??-??
   163   * Fix segfault when trying to display large images with Xv output plugins
   164

   336     NOTE: you will need to remove ~/.xine/catalog.cache when upgrading from
   337           xine-lib 1.1.15 or older if you wish to use this extra option.
   338   * Fix MMS media requests where the URI contains %-encoded characters.
   339   * Fix two hangs related to stopping playback of broken audio streams where
   340     no audio data is sent to the output thread.
   341   * Fix WAV demuxer to send the last frames when they don't fit perfectly into
   342     the buffer
   343 
   344 xine-lib (1.1.15) 2008-08-14
   345   * Security fixes:
   346     - Fix crashes with various corrupted media files, including Ogg.
   347       (CVE-2008-3231)
   348       This includes a libfaad update from the 1.2 branch.
   349     - Delay V4L video frame preallocation until we know how large they'll be.
   350       (CVE-2008-5245)
   351     - Fix an exploitable ID3 heap buffer overflow.
   352       (CVE-2008-5234, vector 2)
   353     - Check for possible buffer overflow attempts in the Real demuxer.
   354       (CVE-2008-5235)
   355     - Use size_t for data length variables where there may be int overflows.
   356     - Add some checks for memory allocation failures.
   357       (CVE-2008-5233)
   358     - Fix crashes with MP3 files with metadata consisting only of separators.
   359       (CVE-2008-5248)
   360   * Use external ffmpeg and libfaad by default.
   361   * V4L: Don't segfault if asked for an input that doesn't exist.
   362   * Recognise AMR audio (normally found in 3GP files).
   363   * Recognise Snow video.
   364   * Xv deinterlacing didn't take the size of the deinterlaced image into
   365     account; on some chipsets, this would cause image corruption, while on
   366     others, there would be no problem.
   367   * V4L: only try and set the tuner if we're going to use it. Setting the tuner
   368     when using baseband video (CVBS, S-Video) breaks the input.
   369 
   370 xine-lib (1.1.14) 2008-06-29
   371   * DVB changes:
   372     - Reacquire PIDs whenever a PMT is parsed. (Some channels' PIDs are
   373       changed on a regular basis.)
   374     - Recognise more stream formats (as defined in the broadcast PMT).
   375     - Allow automatic detection of more DVB tuning parameters.
   376     - Allow the GUI to be disabled.
   377     - Allow configuration of the location of channels.conf.
   378   * V4L: allow TV standard selection.
   379   * Allow input plugins to report MIME type information.
   380     This is used for demuxer plugin selection immediately before testing the
   381     filename extension (so it won't work when demuxer selection is done by
   382     stream content only). [Bug #120]
   383   * Allow input plugins to ask for a specific demuxer, overriding the normal
   384     demuxer selection methods. (Most won't need this.)
   385   * The Xv and XxMC video output plugins now support Xv port selection via
   386     two methods: port number and port type (currently "any", "overlay" and
   387     "textured video"). Port number takes precedence; the plugins will fall
   388     back on another port of the same type (if a type was specified) then on
   389     whatever they can find.
   390     XvMC does not support port selection at present.
   391     (Backported from the 1.2 branch.)
   392   * Fix MPEG TS audio stream problems introduced in 1.1.13.
   393   * Add basic aspect ratio detection for Windows Media Video streams.
   394 
   395 xine-lib (1.1.13) 2008-06-15
   396   * Security fixes:
   397     - Buffer overflow in the NSF demuxer which may allow remote attackers to
   398       cause a denial of service (crash) or possibly execute arbitrary code
   399       via an NSF file with a long title or copyright message. (CVE-2008-1878)
   400     - For extra safety against possible Integer overflows like the ones found
   401       in CVE-2008-1482, backport more calloc usage from 1.2 branch.
   402   * Improved JACK output plugin.
   403   * Added MIME types and .mpp for musepack.
   404   * Fixed display of some MJPEG streams (YUVJ420P).
   405   * Deprecate xine_xmalloc() function, see src/xine-utils/utils.c for more
   406     information about the reason.
   407   * Provide a useful implementation of xine_register_log_cb().
   408 
   409 xine-lib (1.1.12) 2008-04-14
   410   * Security fixes:
   411     - Insufficient boundary check in speex audio decoder. (CVE-2008-1686)
   412   * Fixed and improved the PulseAudio driver.
   413   * Fixed a regression in 1.1.11.1 which broke Quicktime container handling.
   414   * And another, this time in the Matroska demuxer.
   415   * Added a tool to assist with generating front ends' desktop files. It
   416     lists MIME types & filename extensions known to the installed xine-lib.
   417   * Various Real codec improvements, including:
   418     - RV20 no longer causes segfaults (observed on amd64);
   419     - Cook is now handled by ffmpeg.
   420   * Added a video output plugin intended for passing raw data to the front end.
   421 
   422 xine-lib (1.1.11.1) 2008-03-30
   423   * Security fixes:
   424     - Integer overflows in FLV, Qt, Real, WC3Movie, Matroska and FILM
   425       demuxers, allowing remote attackers to trigger heap overflows and
   426       possibly execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2008-1482)
   427   * Added a few more memory allocation checks to the above demuxers.
   428   * WAV file playback fix: don't assume that the first chunk is "fmt ".
   429   * Don't try to play partial 24-bit AIFF frames (decoder would lose data).
   430   * Fixed AIFF comment chunk handling and sample rate reading.
   431   * LPCM fixes: input over-reading, conversion of 24-bit samples.
   432 
   433 xine-lib (1.1.11) 2008-03-19
   434   * Security fixes:
   435     - Array Indexing Vulnerability in sdpplin_parse(). (CVE-2008-0073)
   436   * Reworked the plugin directory naming so that external plugins don't have
   437     to be rebuilt for every release. We now use a naming scheme based on the
   438     API/ABI versioning, checking older directories - with this release, the
   439     plugin directory name is 1.20, and if this gets bumped to 1.21 in a
   440     future release, 1.20 will still be available for external plugins.
   441     (Any directories not 1.* won't be looked in.)
   442   * Made the version parsing much more reliable; it wasn't properly coping
   443     with four-part version numbers. This affects any program whose build
   444     scripts use xine-lib's automake macros.
   445   * Fixed an off-by-one in the FLAC security fix patch. This breakage was
   446     causing failure to play some files.
   447   * Support 16-bit big-endian DTS audio.
   448   * Improved frame snapshot API. (ABI extension.)
   449   * Re-add support for # (stream parameter separator) in raw filenames,
   450     without the bugs found in the original implementation.
   451     (This is a convenience feature for users only. Front ends which rely on
   452     it for functions like subtitle file detection must instead use file://
   453     MRLs; if they don't, we consider them to be buggy.)
   454   * Fixed long delay when closing stream on dual core systems [Bug #33]
   455   * DVD playback improvement: don't trust the file sizes.
   456   * Build fixes for use with recent ffmpeg.
   457 
   458 xine-lib (1.1.10.1) 2008-02-07
   459   * Security fixes:
   460     - Array index vulnerability which may allow remote attackers to execute
   461       arbitrary code via a crafted FLAC tag, causing a stack buffer overflow.
   462       (CVE-2008-0486)
   463     - Buffer overflow in the Matroska demuxer (demuxers/demux_matroska.c)
   464       which may allow remote attackers to cause a denial of service (crash)
   465       or possibly execute arbitrary code via a Matroska file with invalid
   466       frame sizes. (CVE-2008-1161)
   467   * Fix a RealPlayer codec detection bug.
   468   * Improve detection of MP3 streams with ID3v2 tags. Don't trust the tag
   469     size.
   470 
   471 xine-lib (1.1.10) 2008-01-26
   472   * Security fixes:
   473     - Buffer overflow which allows a remote attacker to execute arbitrary
   474       code or crash the client program via a crafted ASF header.
   475       (CVE-2008-1110, related to CVE-2006-1664)
   476   * Update Ogg and Annodex mimetypes and extensions.
   477   * Change the default v4l device paths to /dev/video0 and /dev/radio0.
   478   * Fix support for subtitles with schemes (e.g. http://), partly broken
   479     since 1.1.8.
   480   * Unescape the filename in "#save:". This allows filenames to contain ';'
   481     etc. without ambiguity, e.g. "#save:foo%3B1.ts" -> "foo;1.ts", but front
   482     end authors should be careful with xine-lib older than 1.1.10.
   483   * Backported xine-config & libxine.pc from 1.2.
   484     Consequently, xine-config now requires pkg-config.
   485   * Don't discard audio samples forever. Fixed streaming playback.
   486   * Fix a possible crash on channel change in the DVB plugin.
   487   * Flash video demuxer improvements and bug fixes.
   488   * Make the V4L ALSA audio input device configurable. (This needs more work.)
   489 
   490 xine-lib (1.1.9.1) 2008-01-11
   491   * Security fixes:
   492     - Buffer overflow which allows a remote attacker to execute arbitrary
   493       code via a crafted SDP Abstract attribute.
   494       (CVE-2008-0225, a.k.a. CVE-2008-0238)
   495       (Fix ported from mplayer changeset 22821)
   496   * Fix a read-past-end bug in xine-lib's internal strtok_r replacement.
   497     (Only affects systems without strtok_r.) [Bug #19]
   498   * Fix a bug which causes video playback display errors on PPC/Darwin.
   499 
   500 xine-lib (1.1.9) 2008-01-06
   501   * Fix dvd://.../title[.chapter] handling (somewhat broken in 1.1.8).
   502   * Fix switching DVB subtitles channels.
   503   * DVB sub: switch to dyn mem alloc and allow multiple CLUTs per page.
   504   * Check if DVB sub PTS is reliable and show sub immediately if it's not.
   505   * Fix incorrect H.264 detection on successive MPEG1/2 B frames.
   506   * Add UI option to configure FFmpeg's video decoder thread count.
   507   * Improve syncing of audio and video in the presence of bad frames.
   508   * Improve handling of invalid or unknown frame sizes.
   509   * Fixed handling of streamed Flash videos (broken in 1.1.5).
   510   * Fixed division by zero in sputext decoder
   511   * Build fix for when using Linux 2.6.23 headers. [Bug SF 1820958]
   512   * Implemented decoding of XML character entities with codes >= 256.
   513     This requires conversion to UTF-8 of entities with codes >= 128.
   514   * Handle initial Unicde BOMs in XML; convert other UTF encodings to UTF-8.
   515   * Fixed ATSC support. [Bug SF 1749508]
   516   * Fixed a possible DVB plugin crash when switching channels.
   517   * Fixed a crash closing the frontend. [Bug #7]
   518   * Fixed deadlock on ao_close while paused.
   519   * Nicer wakeup behaviour, using select instead of nanosleep (800 -> 100
   520     wakeups/s).
   521   * Fixed ALSA close function to not discard all data that had been written
   522     but not played yet.
   523   * Fixed a race condition between ao_loop and ao_close to not lose the last
   524     buffer.
   525   * DXR3 encoding with external ffmpeg should be fixed now.
   526     (This was broken by ffmpeg revision 9283).
   527   * Enabled the WMV VC1 & VMware Screen (ffmpeg) codecs.
   528   * Fixed a crash that happened when a video output was closed
   529   * Made the Real demuxer recognise simple lists of http references.
   530   * Require correct URL encoding of '#'s which aren't separators.
   531   * Don't decode %nn in raw filenames. [Bug SF 1784272]
   532   * Always enable a52dec capabilities for external a52dec, this makes it
   533     possible to use the DJB accelerated FFT when using the external a52dec
   534     liba52 library. [Bug #9]
   535   * Fixed an input_pvr issue with 'set input' for ivtv versions 0.10.6+
   536   * demux_aiff: only check for chunk's size being lesser than 100 when
   537     reading the COMM_TAG. [Bug #6]
   538   * Avoid potential mislinkage at install time if a system-wide libxine.so
   539     is present but is *not* pointing at libxine.so.1.
   540   * Update French translation, thanks to Christophe Giraud. [Bug #15]
   541   * Detect corrupted or broken seek tables in CBR MP3 files. [Bug #3]
   542   * Fixed an issue in input_pvr with setting the frequency of the tuner for
   543     ivtv versions 0.10.6+
   544   * Add Turkish translation by Serdar Soytetir and Server Acim.
   545   * Workaround for subtitle rendering when using variable-length character
   546     encodings other than UTF-8. (There is probably still some breakage here.)
   547 
   548 xine-lib (1.1.8) 2007-08-27
   549   * Send a channel-changed event to the frontend when receiving the SYNC
   550     string from last.fm streaming server.
   551   * Disable mediaLib support by default (the licenses probably disallow the
   552     distribution of xine binaries built against mediaLib, and on non-VIS
   553     capable boxes it's probably worse than our own code).
   554   * Rename endianness-reading macros so that they don't collide with Solaris
   555     system macros. BE_/LE_ are now _X_BE_ and _X_LE_.
   556   * Add an extra function to allow front ends to rename their old,
   557     badly-named configuration items.
   558   * Various build fixes and cleanups for Solaris, plugin dependencies etc.
   559   * Fix some memory leaks in the Vorbis decoder and video overlays.
   560   * Fix a problem with the goom plugin which could cause it to stop working.
   561   * Clean up "%" unescaping in MRLs; correctly handle "%" in DVD and VCD MRLs.
   562   * Fix a crash with "dvb:/".
   563   * DVB subtitle fixes: deadlock prevention, thread leakage, spec compliance.
   564   * Allow the DVB input plugin to timeout if it is receiving no signal.
   565   * Fix an audio resampling problem which was causing regular clicking.
   566   * Fix build with recent glibc and a debugging #define. [Bug SF 1773769]
   567   * Fix handling of multiple MPEG TS audio streams & subtitle languages.
   568   * Add colouring for bold & italic in text subtitles.
   569   * Simple scaling of subtitles to fit the frame width (intended to cope
   570     with common DVB resolutions such as 544x576).
   571   * Various small video frame-handling bug fixes.
   572   * Add options to control bob deinterlacing in the XxMC video output plugin.
   573 
   574 xine-lib (1.1.7) 2007-06-07
   575   * Support libdca (new name for libdts) by shuffling around the dts.h file.
   576   * Add support for MDHD version 1 atom in demux_qt. [Bug SF 1679398]
   577   * Handle single-quoted attribute values in XML.
   578   * Fix default paths for RealPlayer libraries (broken in 1.1.5).
   579     [Bug SF 1707526]
   580   * Fix proxy usage when the hostnames cannot be resolved. Thanks to Jeff
   581     Mitchell for reporting and testing the fix.
   582   * Avoid zero-sized frames when demuxing MPEG PES.
   583   * Improved MPEG2 detection and optimised processing.
   584   * Extract AFD information (commonly used in UK DVB-T) from the MPEG stream.
   585   * Ensure that the ffmpeg video image size is properly initialised.
   586   * Allow XxMC to switch back to software decoding; don't deinterlace if it's
   587     not needed for any given frame.
   588   * Document "dvba:" MRLs (ATSC with full tuning info).
   589   * Fix VCD playback (broken since 1.1.4).
   590   * Fix demuxing of FLAC files with ID3v2 tags.
   591   * Use the integer versions of Speex decoding functions, this avoids an
   592     iteration over the decoded frames to transform them to integers, and
   593     also avoids an improper saturation.
   594   * Prioritize the musepack demuxer over mpgaudio, as sometimes the latter can
   595     misfire and report a good file as unplayable.
   596   * Fix an mmap problem with huge files on 32-bit systems.
   597   * Improved MPEG PES stream handling: specifically, misdetection of data
   598     streams as PES streams.
   599   * Handle unplugged ALSA device (fixes crashes) and if the frontend does not
   600     handle the event continue playback to the none output.
   601   * Disable aRTs output plugin by default, it's deprecated and will be removed
   602     in 1.2 series.
   603   * Fix a colour format conversion crash in the fb video output driver.
   604 
   605 xine-lib (1.1.6) 2007-04-17
   606   * Split the DirectFB plugin into X11 and non-X versions.
   607   * Improve the Mac OS X video output plugin. Thanks to Matt Messier.
   608   * Fixed the XcbXv plugin - an empty plugin would be built if "old" Xv
   609     isn't detected.
   610   * Reworked the channels.conf file handling in the DVB plugin. Previously,
   611     with junk content, the plugin could potentially consume lots of memory
   612     (possibly causing a local DoS). Also, a few small memory leaks have been
   613     eliminated.
   614   * Fixed a CDDA-related crash and a DVD-related hang, both caused by the
   615     same change in 1.1.5.
   616 
   617 xine-lib (1.1.5) 2007-04-10
   618   * Security fixes:
   619     - Fix heap overflow in DMO and DirectShow loaders.
   620       Thanks to Kees Cook for reporting.
   621       (CVE-2007-1246 & CVE-2007-1387) [Bug SF 1676925]
   622   * Improved PulseAudio plugin, now only one connection per instance is opened
   623     and the mainloop is threaded to reduce latency during playback.
   624   * Added XCB-based output plugins (Xv and XShm), to use in software using
   625     XCB to talk with the server rather than libX11 (like new Kaffeine).
   626     The plugins are contributed by Christoph Pfister with the help of
   627     Vincent Torri, Jamey Sharp and Christophe Thommeret.
   628   * Fix race condition in alsa audio out driver.
   629   * Fixed a crash in the eq2 plugin. [Bug SF 1644312]
   630   * Fixed content type detection for AAC (seekable) streams with ID3v2
   631     tags prefixed clobbering the preview buffer, by skipping over the tag.
   632   * Parse ID3v2 tags on AAC and FLAC files, as well as mp3 files.
   633   * Priority of the AAC encoder is now lower than anything else, so
   634     it's not going to crash xine down if you try to run an mp3 stream
   635     on FAAD2.
   636   * Relicense the xine-lib XML parser under the GNU LGPL, for use in other
   637     projects.
   638   * Improvement in portability to Solaris and NetBSD, thanks to Albert Lee and
   639     Sergey Svishchev respectively.
   640   * Spanish translation updated by Carlos E. Robinson M.
   641   * Don't leave libstk support to be detected automagically; also made it
   642     disabled by default as upstream is dead and a different libstk is found
   643     on Debian.
   644   * Improvement in portability to FreeBSD, merged some patches (with changes)
   645     from the ports.
   646   * Cleaned up Real binary codecs support, adding support for FreeBSD (still
   647     to be completely cleaned up though), and to 64-bit platforms. Also add
   648     two new configure option, one to enable or disable building of Real binary
   649     support altogether and one to choose the path where to look for the codecs
   650     by default (it can, and probably should) be different from the Win32
   651     codecs path.
   652   * Avoid a possible floating-point exception when starting stream playback.
   653   * Now xine can play correctly media on HTTP servers reporting status codes
   654     but no status message.
   655   * Wave files with 24-bit integer PCM streams now should play correctly
   656     (downplayed to 16-bit).
   657   * Added centre-cutout (4:3 in 16:9) to the expand plugin.
   658     Patch by Reinhard Nissl.
   659   * Fix support of block devices for AC3 and DTS demuxers. Thanks to Matthias
   660     Kretz for the original patch.
   661   * Portability fixes for Mac OS X, in particular Mac OS X on the new Intel
   662     Macs. Thanks to Martin Aumueller, Emanuele Giaquinta and Matt Messier.
   663   * Fix amp muting when level is still at 100. Patch by Reinhard Nissl.
   664   * Create at least a 1×1 shared image when the first frame is skipped (and

   673   * Mark string-type configuration items according to whether they're plain
   674     strings or names of files, device nodes or directories. This information
   675     is available to front ends (via .num_value) so that they can present
   676     file/dir-open dialogue boxes if they so choose.
   677     Subtitle font selection is split up due to this.
   678   * Applied the patch to fix text relocation, provided by PaX Team for Gentoo
   679     and previously applied by other distributions as well. Fixes the non-PIC
   680     code being generated. Note: patch reverted for tomsmocomp (segfault).

   698   * Implement at least a partial content-based detection of ModPlug-decoded
   699     module files, using the magic numbers from GNU file. This allows to open
   700     module files based on content rather than on their extension only.
   701     [Bug SF 1445746]
   702   * Make the libFLAC-based decoder and demuxer for FLAC files work with recent
   703     FLAC release 1.1.3.
   704   * Replace --enable-flac configure option with --with-libflac, as the FLAC
   705     support is always built-in through the audio demuxer plugin and the FFmpeg
   706     decoder plugin, the option only controls the extra FLAC plugin that uses
   707     libFLAC both for demuxing and decoding.
   708   * Implement a True Audio files demuxer. [Bug SF 1586381]

   717     [Bug SF 1625911]
   718   * Initial support to enable/disable ffmpeg codecs. Codecs may be disabled in
   719     groups by --disable-ffmpeg-uncommon-codecs/--disable-ffmpeg-popular-codecs
   720     Think of "uncommon" codecs what people would never want to play with their
   721     PDAs (they will save memory by removing them).
   722     Note: currently both uncommon/popular codecs are _build_ but disabled.
   723     that is, build system still need some improvements to really save memory.
   724   * Fix possible division by zero when pausing (video_out.c).
   725   * Allow disabling build of musepack decoder through a ./configure parameter
   726     (--disable-musepack).
   727   * Allow using external libmpcdec for MusePack decoding rather than the
   728     internal copy of an old libmusepack, through a ./configure parameter
   729     (--with-external-libmpcdec).
   730   * Add support for WavPack files, with both a demuxer and a decoder using
   731     WavPack library. As an alternative, FFmpeg's audio decoder can be used
   732     to decode WavPack files.
   733   * Don't crash when caching a file opened through Samba plugin, thanks to
   734     Timothy Redaelli from Gentoo.

  1006   * Set the codec name for Real Media even if we can't play the files
  1007   * Fix win32 playback on recent versions of Linux
  1008   * Added cropping capability to some video_out drivers (Xv, XvMC, vidix).
  1009     automatic software cropping is provided for drivers not supporting it.
  1010   * Fixed displaying of mpeg2 files where width/height is not a multiple of 16
  1011     (these files required cropping after decoding)
  1012   * Fix crashes with some input plugins when no audio output was available
  1013   * Windows ports updates and cleanups
  1014   * new xxmc driver supporting XvMC with extended vld (for VIA CLE266),

  1016     non-mpeg streams. supports overlays and OSD.
  1017   * suggested using the libXvMCW so xine won't depend on any vendor
  1018     specific library. you can get the old behaviour (not recommended)
  1019     using ./configure --with-xvmc-lib=XvMCNVIDIA.
  1020     The wrapper library libXvMCW is present in Xorg CVS or downloadable
  1021     standalone from http://sourceforge.net/projects/unichrome.
  1022     It will dlopen a hardware-specific XvMC library at runtime.

  1042     overhead of expensive system calls for reading just a couple of
  1043     bytes. may be disabled with MRL parameter "#nocache".
  1044   * use monotonic clock where available (eg. linux 2.6) so system clock
  1045     updates won't disturb xine playback. [Bug SF 781532]
  1046   * fixed seeking unresponsiveness when using external subtitles
  1047   * Allowed multiple simultaneous thread access in parts of the xxmc driver,
  1048     assuming that XvMC libraries are thread-safe.
