Important notes:
----------------
8 9
 * On Linux, localization will be disabled if you have glibc 2.6 or 2.7 due
   to a major bug in libintl with these glibc versions.

10 11 12
 * 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.
13 14 15 16 17
   - On UNIX/Linux, the file is in /usr/share/vlc/http/.hosts
     If you're using the old http interface, it's located in
     /usr/share/vlc/http/old/.hosts
   - On Windows they are in C:\Program Files\VideoLAN\VLC\http\.hosts and
     C:\Program Files\VideoLAN\VLC\http\old\.hosts
18 19
   - On Mac OS X, you can find it in VLC.app/Contents/MacOS/share/http/.hosts
     and respectively in VLC.app/Contents/MacOS/share/http/old/.hosts

 * This version of VLC contains a new interface for Windows and Linux. This
21
   interface lacks a few features that used to be present in VLC 0.8.6:
22 23
   - "Streaming wizard" and "VLM control". These features will be replaced
     by a better alternative in the next version. If you absolutely need these
24
     features, we advise you to keep VLC 0.8.6
25
   - Similarly, "Bookmarks" will be reintroduced in an improved version at a
26
     later point
27
  * The behavior of --sout-keep has changed. It's now activated by default.
28 29 30
  * 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>
31
    You can then use commands like: @test marq-marquee Goodbye
32
    These new commands are also available in the telnet interface.

     Old: '#std{access=rtp,dst=239.255.1.2,sap}'
     New: '#rtp{dst=239.255.1.2,sap}'
37
 * You now need to append --m3u-extvlcopt to your command line to enable
38 39
   EXTVLCOPT options parsing in m3u playlists. Note that only a limited set
   of options is available to m3u playlists.
