Important notes:
----------------
 * The HTTP interface is now only available on the local machine by default.
   If you want to make it available from other machines, you will have to
   edit the ".hosts" file.
   XXX: DETAILED INSTRUCTIONS HERE :XXX
 * This version of VLC contains a new interface for Windows and Linux. This
   interface lacks a few features that used to be present in vlc 0.8.6: 
14 15 16 17 18
   - "Streaming wizard" and "VLM control". These features will be replaced
     by a better alternative in the next version. If you absolutely need these
     features, we advise you to keep vlc 0.8.6
   - Similarly, "Bookmarks" will be reintroduced in an improved version at a 
     later point
19
  * The default for --sout-keep has changed. It's now activated by default.
20 21 22
  * The marq, mosaic and logo commands in the rc interface changed. They
    now require a target name as their first argument. Example:
    vlc --sub-filter "marq@test{marquee=Hello}" -I rc <somevideo>
23
    You can then use commands like: @test marq-marquee Goodbye
24
    These new commands are also available in the telnet interface.
