Important changes for users:

 * On Linux, known bugs in the ALSA library might prevent audio output.
   Update to alsa-lib 1.0.24 or later, or use the PulseAudio output instead.
1143 1144 1145

Important changes for packagers:
 * The module cache has moved to ${libdir}/vlc/. The module cache can now be

1146
   generated at install time except if you use staged installation. In the
1147 1148 1149 1150
   later case, you can generate the module cache in your post-inst script
   by invoking 'vlc-cache-gen'. If the module cache is not present and vlc
   can't write in ${libdir}/vlc/, it will result it vlc taking a long time to
   launch each time.
1151 1152 1153 1154 1155 1156 1157
 * Most X11-related plugins now use XCB instead of Xlib. VLC now uses
   - xproto,
   - xcb, xcb-shm, xcb-xv, xcb-randr (from libxcb),
   - xcb-keysyms (from xcb-utils),
   - x11-xcb (from libx11) - only for GLX support.
 * On X11 platforms, a _working_ version of xdg-screensaver is typically
   required to inhibit the screensaver during video playback.
