<b>NOTE:</b> This release doesn't include DTS audio decoding support.
DTS Inc. claims that distributing this software with DTS decoding capabilities is a violation of their patent EP 864 146. At DTS Inc. request, we decided, as a precautionary measure, to provisionally suspend the distribution of VLC with DTS decoding capabilities while reviewing DTS Inc. claim. This is not an acknowledgement of the validity of the claim.

|31 jan 2001| See the new vlc at the Linux Expo in Paris | vlc has been
forked into two branches: stable (0.2.0, codenamed Onatopp) and unstable
(0.2.50, codenamed Urumov). Unstable has a lot of new interesting
features.

|20 jan 2001| Changed web server | We have moved the web site to our
brand new IBM server. Please let us know if anything goes wrong on the
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

|27 aug 2000| Release: vlc 0.1.99i | A new version of the VideoLAN
client fixes a few display bugs, we now have field images support

which prevented code to be compiled with optimizations. Now that this
issue has been fixed, we got a 40% speed increase!

|11 aug 2000| New TODO list | We did a <a href="/vlc/todo.html">TODO
list</a> for the 0.2.0 release. People wanting to help might pick up
ideas from this list.

|24 jan 2000| More performance increase | Our new custom video decoder
gives us a 50% speed increase. We now can play DVDs at full framerate on
a Celeron 366 using framebuffer output, which makes the vlc the fastest

there're still many improvements that can be done.

few weeks, starting from screenshots or hopefully more.

|22 oct 1999| Huge performance increase on the vlc | Thanks to Polux,
who rewrote the YUV transformation in the vlc using MMX assembly, a mere
P2-300 can now display about 12fps of MPEG2 video.
