Important changes for users:
214 215
 * On Linux, known bugs in the ALSA library might prevent audio output.
   Update to alsa-lib 1.0.24 or later, or use the PulseAudio output instead.
216 217 218

Important changes for packagers:
 * The module cache has moved to ${libdir}/vlc/. The module cache can now be
Jean-Baptiste Kempf's avatar
Jean-Baptiste Kempf committed
219
   generated at install time except if you use staged installation. In the
220 221 222 223
   later case, you can generate the module cache in your post-inst script
   by invoking 'vlc-cache-gen'. If the module cache is not present and vlc
   can't write in ${libdir}/vlc/, it will result it vlc taking a long time to
   launch each time.
224 225 226 227 228 229 230
 * Most X11-related plugins now use XCB instead of Xlib. VLC now uses
   - xproto,
   - xcb, xcb-shm, xcb-xv, xcb-randr (from libxcb),
   - xcb-keysyms (from xcb-utils),
   - x11-xcb (from libx11) - only for GLX support.
 * On X11 platforms, a _working_ version of xdg-screensaver is typically
   required to inhibit the screensaver during video playback.
