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
   - "Streaming wizard". These features will be replaced
23
     by a better alternative in the next version. If you absolutely need these
24 25
     features, we advise you to keep VLC 0.8.6
  * The behavior of --sout-keep has changed. It's now activated by default.
26 27 28
  * 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>
29
    You can then use commands like: @test marq-marquee Goodbye
30
    These new commands are also available in the telnet interface.

 * The "rtp" access output module has been removed:

Rafaël Carré committed
32
   Please use the RTP stream output instead, e.g.:
33 34
     Old: '#std{access=rtp,mux=ts,dst=239.255.1.2:5004,sap}'
     New: '#rtp{mux=ts,dst=239.255.1.2,port=5004,sap}'
35
 * You now need to append --m3u-extvlcopt to your command line to enable
36
   EXTVLCOPT options parsing in m3u playlists. Note that only a limited set
Rémi Denis-Courmont's avatar
Rémi Denis-Courmont committed
37
   of options is available to m3u playlists (CVE-2007-6683).
38 39 40
 * The old access:url syntax is no longer supported. Use access://url instead.
	E.g.:  vlc:quit -> vlc://quit ; 
	       udp:@239.255.12.12 -> udp://@239.255.12.12
