 * 3.0.x will be maintained as a LTS (best-effort basis, mostly for security)
   that will be the last working version for quite a few systems.

42 43 44 45 46 47 48 49 50 51 52 53 54 55 56
   Indeed the 3.0.x branch will contain the last releases running on:

 * For the 3.0 branch, please note:
   * The Windows XP/2003/2003R2 support for VLC is now on a best-effort basis:
     it should work, but not without limitations.
