|26 October 2008|End of support for VLC 0.8.6 series|The VideoLAN team ceases all form of support for VLC media player 0.8.6-bugfix tree.

After several several call for help,
it is apparent that there is no interest in the community
to maintain the 0.8.6 branch of the VLC media player.
As a consequence, it has not been possible to put sufficient efforts
to ensure adequate continued quality of the 0.8.6-bugfix branch.
Effective immediately,
there will be no more security and critical fixes for VLC 0.8.6.
Binary releases of the 0.8.6-bugfix branch had already stopped as of July 2008.

The VideoLAN team will continue to provide major or security-related bug fixes
for the VLC media player 0.9-bugfix branch.
If you have not already upgraded to VLC version 0.9.5, please do so urgently
(exploits for vulnerabilities found in older versions are widely available
 as of today).

|24 October 2008|VLC media player 0.9.5|The VideoLAN team is pleased to announce the release of VLC media player 0.9.5.

Further technical details are available in <a href="http://www.videolan.org/security/sa0809.html">our advisory</a> (CVE-2008-4654, CVE-2008-4686). Also, libpng was updated in Windows and MacOS builds to address a separate security issue (CVE-2008-3964).<br />

This release also improves media keys support under Windows, file access under all OSes, Qt4 interface usability, and fixes a few extra bugs. Full list of changes can be found <a href="http://www.videolan.org/developers/vlc/NEWS">here</a>.<br />

<p>We'd like to thank all our contributors, testers and users around the world for their support and help making this release possible.<br /><br />We are putting out a call for NEW Windows developers. At the moment, our Windows-port is sorely missing some much needed love from a true Windows developer. Our team has been without a Windows developer for several months now, which is blocking us from supporting our largest usergroup in the manner we want to. We are therefore looking for developers to help our team in the areas of debugging crashes, Direct X, A/V capturing, ActiveX and Windows integration, so we can hopefully resume supporting our largest group of users in the best possible way. If we are unable to find new developers, new versions of VLC media player for Windows might become less frequent and severely out of sync with the Linux and Mac OS X versions.<br /><br />
So, no donations for work on the Windows-port and no "opportunities"-emails, for Windows we only require: Developers, Developers, Developers !!!!!

Though VLC media player does not have a stand (terribly expensive), it is used on many stands by the attending companies. As every year, several of the VLC media player developers were present on the floor and Derk-Jan Hartman made a <a href="http://picasaweb.google.com/d.j.hartman/IBC2008#">photo report</a> showing some of the uses, by companies like: HP, Cisco, Anystream, Fraunhofer, BBC and many smaller companies.<br />
It is the industries 'dirty little secret' you could say. Much of the IPTV based work starts by testing the IPTV streams with VLC media player. New features are sometimes even implemented in VLC media player for internal development, and then once it works, the engineers write a new program based on their experiences, which they deliver to their customers. However sometimes VLC media player even makes it into the endproduct. Big name HP clearly <a href="http://picasaweb.google.com/d.j.hartman/IBC2008#5246709674847748114">uses VLC media player in this product of theirs</a>.

|29 August 2006| New MacIntel server| The builds for Mac OS X Intel were still being produced on a Development Kit Intel machine from Apple. It's time to bring that machine back to Apple and as a replacement the VideoLAN team has used the donations of our users in order to purchase a new server. The original idea was to get a MacMini, but in the configuration we wanted it, we could just as well get an iMac. Which is what we did. We <a href="http://sidekick.student.utwente.nl/gallery/album01/DSC00244?full=1">received</a> the machine last week, and now it's <a href="http://sidekick.student.utwente.nl/gallery/album01/DSC00245?full=1">setup</a>, and <a href="http://buildbot.videolan.org">keeping an eye</a> on VLC for MacIntel.

|19 June 2006|VideoLAN needs your help|There are many things that we would like to improve in VLC, but that we don't, because we simply don't have enough time. That's why we are currently looking for some help. We have identified several small projects that prospective developers could work on.<br />
Knowledge of C and/or C++ programming will certainly be useful, but you don't need to be an expert, nor a video expert. Existing VLC developers will be able to help you on these projects. You can find the list and some instructions on <a href="http://wiki.videolan.org/Mini_Projects">the dedicated Wiki page</a>.

|25 May 2006| Website redesign contest| Those of you browsing the web with text only console browsers might think that <a href="http://www.videolan.org">this website's design</a> is great, all the others wouldn't agree (some might even dare compare it with VLC's default interface on windows and linux). We've thus decided to give you the opportunity to change it.<br/>
Rules are available on the <a href="http://wiki.videolan.org/WebsiteRedesign">wiki</a>. All discussion and posts relative to the contest will be made in the <a href="http://forum.videolan.org/viewforum.php?f=10">Website discussion forum</a>.<br/>
<b>Update:</b> The deadline for this contest is set to Friday 14/07. You can have a look at current proposals on <a href="http://wiki.videolan.org/WebsiteDesign">this wiki page</a>.

web pages.

|07 dec 2000| VideoLAN on a floppy | For our beta-tests campaign on our
local network, we have created a boot floppy allowing non-Linux users to
boot off the floppy and load the vlc through an NFS mountage. It rocks!

|06 dec 2000| New beta-test campaign! | VideoLAN is not vlc. It's a
whole network solution; we are testing again, on our LAN, as many
improvements have been done to the three part of the project ( videolan
server, vlan solution, client ) since we last tested it. We expect about
50 to 100 beta-testers. See the test section if you are a student in the
Residence of the Ecole Centrale.

|22 nov 2000| For rh7.0 users ... | Redhat 7.0 users may have
difficulties to build the vlc, as the version included in rh7.0 isn't a
stable one. We advice you either to take the rpm or to downgrade to gcc
2.95

there're still many improvements that can be done.
