  * ./plugins/a52/a52.c: added an option to disable the dynamic range
9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26 27 28 29 30 31 32 33 34 35 36 37 38 39 40 41 42 43 44 45 46 47 48 49 50 51 52 53 54 55 56 57 58 59 60 61 62 63 64 65 66 67 68 69 70 71 72 73 74 75 76 77 78 79 80 81 82 83 84 85 86 87 88 89 90 91 92 93 94 95 96 97 98 99 100 101 102 103 104 105 106 107 108 109 110 111 112 113 114 115 116 117 118 119 120 121 122 123 124 125 126 127 128 129 130 131 132 133 134 135 136 137 138 139 140 141 142 143 144 145 146 147 148 149 150 151 152 153 154 155 156 157 158 159 160 161 162 163 164 165 166 167 168 169 170 171 172 173 174 175 176 177 178 179 180 181 182 183 184 185 186 187 188 189 190 191 192 193 194 195 196 197 198 199 200 201 202 203 204 205 206 207 208 209 210 211 212 213 214 215 216 217 218 219 220 221 222 223 224 225 226 227 228 229 230 231 232 233 234 235 236 237 238 239 240 241 242 243 244 245 246 247 248 249 250 251 252 253 254 255 256 257 258 259 260 261 262 263 264 265 266 267 268 269 270 271 272 273 274 275 276 277 278 279 280 281 282 283 284 285 286 287 288 289 290 291 292 293 294 295 296 297 298 299 300 301 302 303 304 305 306 307 308 309 310 311 312 313 314 315 316 317 318 319 320 321 322 323 324 325 326 327 328
  * ./ removed configuration stuff which does not need to
    rebuild anything to Makefile.config, so that editing it will not cause
    a complete rebuild.
  * ./plugins/beos/VideoWindow.h, ./plugins/beos/vout_beos.cpp: improved
    Overlay and Bitmap output modes.
  * ./plugins/macosx/aout_macosx.m, ./plugins/macosx/aout_macosx.m: removed
    unused headers.
  * ./plugins/macosx/intf_controller.[mh]: you can now drag & drop files onto
    the vlc dock icon. CFBundleDocumentTypes in Info.plist doesn't seem to have
    any effect, so you'll have to hold down command-option when dropping until
    this is resolved.
  * ./src/video_output/video_output.c: removed previous patch to the video
    output since it causes problems for some people.
  * ./plugins/macosx/*: worked around a bug in seeking.
  * ./include/threads_func.h: OS X port now uses real-time threads.
  * ./ fixes for ffmpeg and mad.
  * ./extras/MacOSX/Resources/English.lproj/MainMenu.nib/objects.nib: OS X intf
    is now more consistent with Apple guidelines.
  * ./plugins/gtk/gtk_preferences.c: fixed a segfault I introduced lately in
  * ./plugins/macosx/intf_vlc_wrapper.m: don't try to eject unless there is
    a disc to eject.
  * ./plugins/macosx/intf_vlc_wrapper.m: fixed a segfault in the Mac OS X
  * ./plugins/satellite/input_satellite.c: cosmetic changes in error messages.
  * ./plugins/gtk/*: gtk and gnome interfaces now use frequency and symbol
    rate default values.
  * ./BUGS: removed fixed entries.
  * ./plugins/spudec/spu_decoder.c: initialize p_spudec->p_vout to NULL to
    prevent segfaults if InitThread does not complete.
  * ./plugins/text/rc.c: on win32 the rc plugin opens a new console.
  * ./plugins/filters/*: filters were using memalign but freeing p_data instead
    of p_data_orig.
  * ./extras/Win32_msvc/vlc.dsp: updated MSVC++ project.
  * ./src/interface/main.c: small corrections to the LONGTEXT descriptions in
  * ./AUTHORS: a few additions.
  * ./vlc.spec: updates, courtesy of Yves Duret <>.
  * ./ new --with-ffmpeg option for standard installations.
  * ./src/interface/main.c: updated long descriptions.
  * ./plugins/dummy/intf_dummy.c: on win32 the dummy interface plugin will
    open a dos command box. With this fix, vlc should never fail silently and
    leave a ghost process running in the background when there isn't any
    working GUI plugin.
  * ./include/config.h: on win32 DVD/VCD_DEVICE defaults to to D:.
  * ./src/interface/main.c: added a few *_LONGTEXT descriptions.
  * ./plugins/mpeg_vdec/video_parser.c: moved the mpeg-motion and mpeg-idct
     options to the mpeg_vdec plugin.
  * ./plugins/spudec/spu_decoder.c: mark subpictures destroyed when we end
    spudec thread.
  * ./src/audio_output/aout_pcm.c: desperate attempt to improve audio output.
  * ./doc/vlc-howto.sgml, ./doc/vlc.1, ./README.MacOSX.rtf: updated
  * ./INSTALL.win32: updated INSTALL.win32.
  * ./plguins/directx/vout_directx.c, ./plugins/directx/vout_events.c: a little
    bit of clean-up in the directx video output plugin
  * ./plugins/macosx/*: fixed Mac OS X resizing.
  * ./src/misc/configuration.c: warning levels are no longer additive, patch
    courtesy of Arnaud de Bossoreille de Ribou <>.
  * ALL: changed __inline__ with inline (autoconf does the job for us anyway,
    and mipspro doesn't know about __inline__).
  * ./src/audio_output/aout_pcm.c, ./src/audio_output/aout_ext-dec.c: fixed
    deadlock in NextFrame() in aout_pcm.c.
  * ./plugins/directx/vout_directx.c, ./plugins/directx/vout_events.c: fixed
    a bug in the directx window creation function. We register a window
    class once per process so we must be careful not to free the associated
  * ./extras/Win32_msvc/vlc.dsp: updated the MSVC++ project files and added
    support for dirent (vlc compiled with msvc can now load plugins - even
    compiled with mingw).
  * ALL: small portability fixes.
  * ./plugins/macosx/*: menu item to maximize the volume in Mac OS X.
  * ALL: dropped dependancy on autoconf 2.52.
  * ./plugins/directx/vout_directx.c: modified the directx video plugin to try
    to create an YUV surface before falling back to an RGB surface when it's
    not possible to use overlays. Some graphic cards can do the YUV->RGB
    conversion in hardware during the blitting stage.
  * ./plugins/directx/vout_directx.c: in the directx video plugin, we now
    request that the RGB surface be created in video memory. The reasoning
    behind this is that usually surfaces in video memory benefit from more
    hardware acceleration (like for instance hw rescaling, hw blitting, etc.).
  * ./plugins/directx/directx.c: added two options to the directx video plugin
    to disable the above features (mainly because my video driver is buggy and
    doesn't handle them well).
  * ./src/misc/configuration.c: small cosmetic changes to the generation of
    the config file.
  * ./src/misc/configuration.c: fix for config_GetHomeDir() on win32.
    SHGetFolderPath() is located in shfolder.dll not shell32.dll.
  * ./plugins/gtk/gtk_preferences.c: fix for the gtk preferences dialog box. To
    be sure that an int or float value is actually changed we call
   gtk_spin_button_update() in the GtkInt/FloatChanged() event handler.
  * ./debian/control: made the Build-Depends: entry a one-liner (Closes
    Debian bug #147103).
  * ./src/audio_output/aout_spdif.c: a lock was not released.
  * ./plugins/text/rc.c: added a safety lock.
  * ./plugins/gtk/*: new Network dialog box for Gtk and Gnome interfaces.
  * ./plugins/mpeg_system/mpeg_audio.c: you can now force the mpeg_audio demux
  * ./plugins/mpeg_vdec/vpar_headers.c: update reference in case of sequence
    end code.
  * ./src/input/input_clock.c: don't keep the control lock during the pause.
  * ./plugins/ac3_spdif/ac3_spdif.c, ./src/audio_output/aout_spdif.c: check for
    b_die and b_error in all loops so that we don't remain stuck waiting for
    data whereas the vlc has tried to quit.
  * ./src/misc/mtime.c: we use nanosleep whenever possible (patch from Meuuh).
  * ./plugins/avi/avi.c : it will not segfault with broken avi with an unknown
  * ./src/misc/mtime.c: removed usage of usleep (not thread safe) (by Meuuh).
  * ./src/video_output/video_output.c: video output patch to improve handling
    of late pictures (by Meuuh).
  * ./src/interface/intf_msg.c, src/interface/intf_playlist.c: disabled
    calls to realloc(_,0) in a similar way to input_programs.c.
  * ./plugins/dvd/dvd_seek.c: fix random segfaults on title change (i_cell
    should be tested _before_ we access the structures).
  * ./src/input/input_programs.c: fixed memory corruption by setting a few
    pointers to NULL after they have been free()ed.
  * ./src/input/input_programs.c: removed now useless ASSERTs.
  * ./plugins/beos/*: improved overlay and bitmap support, not tested on nVidia
    cards. Lower CPU usage and no thread created per frame.
  * ./plugins/dvd/dvd_summary.c: added a sanity check.
  * ./plugins/vcd/*: vcd access plugin now uses mpeg_ps demux instead of its
    own one.
  * ./plugins/macosx/vout_qdview.m: attempt to fix the video output with
    QuickTime 6.
  * ./plugins/ac3_adec/ac3_adec.c: probably fixed most "crash when changing
    audio track" problems by zeroing the p_ac3dec structure.
  * ./plugins/ac3_adec/ac3_adec.c: fixed a "INPUT_MAX_ALLOCATION reached"
  * ./src/input/input_dec.c, ./src/input/input_programs.c: check size to avoid
  * ./plugins/win32/network.*: new Network dialog box.
  * ./src/input/input.c, ./plugins/access/http.c, ./plugins/access/udp.c: added
    the input_FDNetworkClose() function to be called when closing a networking
    stream instead of input_FDClose().
  * ./src/misc/netutils.c: use closesocket() instead of close() at the end
    of the network_ChannelJoin() for WIN32.
  * ./src/misc/configuration.c: fixed an issue with long options from
    modules where option arguments and playlist entries were mixed.
  * ./plugins/spudec/spu_decoder.c: fixed endianness issue; subtitles colors
    should be OK now.
  * ./plugins/satellite/input_satellite.c: fixed a compilation warning.
  * ./ added libdvbpsi version check.
  * ./include/modules_inner.h: fixed a bug in module reinitialization,
    which should fix crashes after a long pause.
  * ./src/input/*: fixed a bug (glitch/segfault) when seeking.
  * ./src/input/mpeg_system.c: we handle PCR even if they are not attached
    to a PMT.
  * ./ new --with-mad-tree configure option.
  * ./BUGS: updated BUGS file.
  * ./src/input/mpeg_system.c: it should now be possible to quit when reading
    a bogus file.
  * ./src/misc/iso-639.def, ./include/iso_lang.h, ./src/misc/iso_lang.c:
    iso-839-[12] tools.
  * ./plugins/dvd/dvd_es.c, ./plugins/dvd/dvd_summary.c,
    ./plugins/dvdread/input_dvdread.c: adapted DecodeLanguage calls to the new
  * plugins/mpeg_system/mpeg_ts.c: ISO-639-2 descriptors handling.
  * ./include/mmx.h, ./plugins/imdct/*: gcc-3.1 compilation fixes courtesy
    of Yves Duret and other Mandrakesoft guys I don't know.
  * ./plugins/macosx/intf_vlc_wrapper.m: do not eject when we're reading from
    the disc...
  * ./src/misc/modules.c: if a module has a zero-scored capability, we don't
    try to use it, unless it was explicitely requested (--vout for example).
  * ./plugins/sdl/vout_sdl.c: fixed an aspect ratio issue (thanks Meuuh). 
  * ./src/input/mpeg_system.c: fixed an old old bug in TS demux, thank you
  * ./plugins/mpeg_system/mpeg_audio.c: to avoid problem with PS, test only the
    first 4 bytes for mpeg header so some broken files, and all web radio will
    not work. You can change this by changing value of MPEGAUDIO_MAXTESTPOS.
  * ./doc/vlc-howto.sgml: spelling mistakes, small updates, harmonization with
    other documentations (thank you Alexis).
  * ./plugins/satellite/*: some fixes in options parsing (thank you Sam).
  * ./extras/MacOSX/Resources/vlc.icns: new OS X icon, courtesy of Joeri van
    Dooren <>.
  * ./plugins/mpeg_vdec/video_decoder.c: Mac OS X fix.
  * ./plugins/mpeg_system/mpeg_audio.c: you should again be able to play PS
    streams (I hope it will be enough). Sorry.
  * ./plugins/ffmpeg/ffmpeg.c: CVS version of ffmpeg can now decode
    msmpeg4 v1 v2, so I added support for this. But you can always use
    the old ffmpeg library without any problem (I hope ;).
  * ./include/video.h : added new fourcc codes for avi.
  * ./plugins/filter/clone.c: New filter, `--filter clone', duplicates
    display. To duplicate 12 times, use `--filter clone:12'.
  * ./plugins/x11/xcommon.c, ./plugins/x11/xvideo.c: --xvideo-chroma flag to
    force the XVimage format used.
  * ./plugins/text/ncurses.c: ncurses interface improvements by Thomas Graf.
  * ./plugins/mpeg_system/mpeg_audio.c: we don't use any more U32_AT.
  * ./plugins/macosx/*: disabled auto-hiding of mouse cursor since it doesn't
    work when browsing menus; instead, click in the video window
  * ./plugins/macosx/*: fixed a major bug in the spu decoder.
  * ./plugins/macosx/*: Objective-C files are now .m.
  * ./plugins/macosx/*: fixed menus.
  * ./plugins/macosx/*: menus for Program/Title/Chapter/Languages.
  * ./plugins/avi/avi.c: we use input_ClockManageRef to do synchro.
  * ./include/common.h, ./include/input_ext-plugins.h: exported
    input_ClockGetTS for plugins.
  * ./plugins/mpeg_system/mpeg_audio.c: a demux for mpeg audio stream (file,
    web radio ...) 
  * ./src/interface/main.c: if Ctrl-C doesn't kill vlc cleanly for any
    reason, user just needs to hit Ctrl-C again 1 second later and we'll
    exit disgustingly instead of freezing.
  * ./plugins/macosx/intf_vlc_wrapper.c: menu code fixes.
  * ./plugins/macosx/*: fixed Mac OS X VOUT_SIZE_CHANGE signal.
  * ./plugins/ffmpeg/ffmpeg.c: corrected some bad lock/unlock.
  * ./plugins/avi/avi.c: can now use --novideo.
  * ./plugins/macosx/*: improvements of the OS X GUI.
  * ./plugins/mad/*: added mad plugin downscale config option for selecting
    downscaling routine. Choices are: fast, mpg321. Default the fast version
    is used. The downscale option mpg321 uses an algorithm that adapts to
    dither errors. This routine is borrowed from MPG321 code.
  * ./plugins/mad/*.c: mono audio streams get now duplicated on the right
    channel instead of silencing the right channel (untested).
  * ./plugins/avi/avi.c, ./plugins/ffmpeg/ffmpeg.c: improvements.
  * ./src/video_output/video_output.c: video plugins that don't handle
    rescaling themselves have to let the video_output thread know about
    resizing events (with VOUT_SIZE_CHANGE event). (this part needs some
    clean-up but it is basically working for the X11 and SDL plugins).
  * ./plugins/sdl/vout_sdl.c: fixed fullscreen for the SDL plugin.
  * ./plugins/sdl/vout_sdl.c, ./plugins/mga/xmga.c: xmga and sdl now switch to
    fullscreen on double-click.
  * ./plugins/avi/avi.c: try to not freeze when reaching end file.
  * ./plugins/x11/xcommon.c, ./src/video_output.c: fixed the resizing and
    scaling of the X11 video output.
  * ./plugins/x11/xcommon.c: clicking on the video doesn't pause it anymore
    (use spacebar for this), but double-clicking will now switch between
    fullscreen and window mode.
  * ./plugins/gtk/gtk_preferences.c: the Apply button in the preferences menu
    is grayed out unless there's a change to apply.
  * ./plugins/gtk/gtk_preferences.c: GtkConfigApply() now clears the list of
    config changes before returning.
  * ./plugins/network/ipv4.c: fixed compilation under QNX.
  * ./ deactivated under QNX for now.
  * ./plugins/macosx/aout_macosx.c: more stable audio output with more output
  * ./BUGS: no text in the status bar with gtk intf, no window title in gtk
    intf on some machines, correct title on another.
  * ./plugins/gtk/*.glade, ./plugins/gtk/*_interface.*: fix for interface   
    autoshrink when toolbar text isn't displayed.
  * ./plugins/gtk/gnome.c, ./plugins/gtk/gtk.c, ./plugins/gtk/gtk_display.*:
    callbacks for the hide tooltips and toolbar text options.
  * ./plugins/mad/*: aout fifo adapts it size according to the length of the
    first frame. The change is needed for MPEG1/2 layer III, because the size
    of output pcm from mad_decoder is different.
  * ./include/modules_inner.h, ./src/misc/configuration.c: support for config
    options callbacks.
  * ./ we check support for variadic macros (screw Borland!).
  * ./plugins/gtk/gnome.c: new option lets you hide the text of the
    GNOME interface toolbar.
  * ./FAQ: small FAQ update. Please note that everyone can update this FAQ if
    they want, it is not my property :-).
  * ./AUTHORS: added quite a few missing names.
  * ./plugins/qnx/vout_qnx.c: port of the QNX vout plugin to the vout4 API,
    courtesy of Pascal Levesque <>.
  * ./plugins/avi/avi.c: you can now use slow and fast reading. After seeking,
    audio and video synchro is better.
  * ./plugins/macosx/aout_macosx.c: misc sound fixes.
  * ./ fixed VCD double detection.
  * ./src/misc/configuration.c, ./plugins/text/logger.c: the configuration file
    and the log file are opened in text mode. This mode should only have a
    meaning on Win32 and isn't supposed to break any other platform. If does
    give you any trouble then shout.
  * ./ added a --with-a52-tree option to the configure script.
  * ./plugins/spudec/spu_decoder.c: FOURCC_YUY2 subtitles support (for NVidia
    overlay) courtesy of Rudolf Cornelissen <>.
  * ./plugins/kde/*: configuration dialog for the KDE interface, courtesy
    of Sigmund Augdal <>.
  * ./plugins/chroma/i420_yuy2.h: workaround for yet another annoying gcc
    behaviour with inline assembly (seems to be BeOS-specific). If anyone has
    a better idea than the huge "memory" constraint, please have a look at
    the MMX_CALL() macro!
  * ./plugins/avi/avi.c: corrected a bug with broken avi files.
  * ./src/misc/modules_plugin.h: added config_Get/PutFloatVariable to
    p_sysmbols. Thanks to Sigmund Augdal for pointing this bug out.
  * ./src/audio_output/aout_pcm.c: on Win32 the aout_pcm thread is given a high
    priority. This avoids lots of audio underruns, especially when moving
    around the video window.
  * plugins/avi/avi.c : changed in order to read more avi files, Meuuh
    you can now read your file ;) (but audio is awful, perhaps because of mad
    plugin ?). Fix a bug for audio with some avi files.
  * ./plugins/satellite/satellite.c: fixed a compilation issue in satellite
    input. It now uses common or libdvbpsi ts demux. Untested cause I can't
    get our Nova Card work again.
  * ./src/video_output/vout_pictures.c: restored vout_CopyPicture(). It is
    needed by the directx plugin damnit ;-)
  * ./include/config.h: restored AOUT_BUFFER_DURATION to its old value. It
    should solve quite a few underrun problems.
  * ./plugins/directx/vout_directx.c: a little bit of DirectX plugin clean-up.
  * ./ipkg/control: added more information in ipkg control file.
  * ./include/modules_inner.h: the module name is now a default shortcut, for
    it, no need to manually add it.
  * ./plugins/sdl/vout_sdl.c, ./plugins/x11/xcommon.c: when in fullscreen
    mode, the Esc key does not quit immediately, but first escapes from
    fullscreen mode. User-requested feature.
  * ./include/os_specific.h: fixed a C++ compilation issue.
  * ./include/videolan/vlc.h: removed the main() declaration because SDL
    defines it as a macro.
  * ./plugins/avi/avi.c: with some broken avi files, will not freeze, and
    try to detect end of file.
  * ./include/threads_func.h: moved the function definitions from threads.h
    into threads_funcs.h. This allows us to move p_main_sys into p_main
  * ./ fixed the --with-gtk-config-path and --with-sdl-config-path
  * ./plugins/avi/avi.c: seek is faster.
  * ./ fixed a typo in libdvbpsi handling.
  * ./plugins/vcd/cdrom_tools: FreeBSD 4.5 port of the vcd input.
  * ./INSTALL.win32: updated win32 compilation instructions.
  * ./plugins/mpeg_system/mpeg_ts.c: fixed --program option.
  * ./include/common.h: fixed vlc_memalign.
  * ./plugins/avi/avi.c: now it can play broken files with seek enabled but
    it's very slow (will be fixed soon).
  * ./src/misc/beos_specific.c: added system_Configure(). Sorry O:-)
  * ./src/input/input_programs.c: a video divx ES will no longer be considered
    as an audio ES (thanks sam).
  * ./src/misc/darwin_specific.c: added system_Configure().
  * ./plugins/macosx/vout_macosx.c: cleaned up QTScaleMatrix().
  * ./plugins/macosx/*: A/V sync should be much more precise.
  * ./plugins/macosx/vout_qdview.c: borders in fullscreen mode are now black
    and the movie is centered.
  * ./extras/MacOSX/vlc.pbproj/project.pbxproj: new creator ID: VLC#.
329 330 331 332 333 334 335 336 337 338 339 340 341 342 343 344 345 346 347 348 349 350 351 352 353 354 355 356 357 358 359 360 361 362 363 364 365 366 367 368 369 370 371 372 373 374 375 376 377 378 379
  * ./src/misc/modules_plugin.h: exported input_ClockManageRef for fenrir.
  * ./include/video.h: moved vout_CopyPicture out of the way, an inline
    function did not make sense here.
  * ./include/video.h: moved vout_ChromaCmp out of the way.
  * ./plugins/avi/fourcc.h, ./include/video.h: merged these two files into
  * ./include/os_specific.h: this file is now always included.
  * ./include/debug.h: removed this file which was almost useless, and moved
    ASSERT to common.h.
  * ./include/common.h: fixed vlc_memalign and changed its prototype to
    follow posix_memalign's.
  * ./ dropped usage of $withval and $enableval in favor of the
    safer variants $with_foo and $enable_foo.
  * ./plugins/avi/avi.c: will not segfault when no audio is found/supported.
  * ./plugins/ffmpeg/ffmpeg.c: with empty frame(data_packet) it won't segfault.
  * ./plugins/avi/avi.c: use KeyFrame to seek, so video will not be bad as
  * ./plugins/mpeg_system/mpeg_ts.c: moved Program Specific Information
    decoder to the ts demux module.
  * ./plugins/mpeg_system/Makefile: added a mpeg_ts_dvbpsi module tha uses
    libdvbpsi to decode PSIs. It is used by default if the lib is found. It
    shares much code with mpeg_ts.
  * ./plugins/directx/vout_events.c: fixed typo. You have to double click on
    the video window to switch to fullscreen.
  * ./src/misc/configuration.c: on Win32 the config file is now stored under
    the "Application Data" folder belonging to the user. (this works if at
    least IE4 is installed, otherwise the old method is used to get the
    config directory)
  * ./ fixed MacOS X module linking problem.
  * ./src/interface/main.c: we no longer segfault if argc == 0.  
  * ALL: renamed PLUGINS to __PLUGINS__ to avoid conflicts with libraries
    defining it. Grmbl.
  * ./src/input/input_ext-plugins.c: cosmetic change.
  * ./plugins/ac3_adec/*: use of _M to avoid conflict with libavcodec.a.
  * ./plugins/avi/*: a light AVI demux.
  * ./plugins/ffmpeg/*: a video decoder for divx v3 and opendivx.
  * ./plugins/win32/preferences.cpp: fixed a compilation bug
  * ./plugins/avi, ./plugins/ffmpeg: created empty directories for fenrir's
    upcoming work.
  * ./plugins/spudec/spu_decoder.c: fixed the spu decoder to take the pitch
    of the destination picture into account when rendering the subtitles
    (Implemented only for the YUV modes).
  * ./plugins/directx/vout_events.c: fixed the mouse autohidding feature in
    the DirectX plugin (at least partially).
  * ./plugins/directx/vout_directx.c: fixed the DirectX video output for
    non-overlay modes. It was only working in RGB16 before.
  * ./plugins/directx/vout_directx.c: DirectX video output plugin now uses
    triple buffering for YUV overlay. This improves the video quality a lot
    (no tearing) without affecting performance. (I knew double buffering
    sucked but I just discovered why triple buffering is better: you don't
    have to wait for the vsync to flip the buffers).
380 381 382
  * ./plugins/spudec/spu_decoder.c, ./plugins/dvd/dvd_es.c: temporary fix
    to avoid retrieving the spu palette from a network stream as if it was
    a DVD.
383 384 385 386 387 388 389 390
  * ./src/interface/main.c: tidied the help output code.
  * ALL: removed underscores from option names and made a few options more
    self-explanatory, for instance --input_channel becomes --audio-channel;
    run vlc -H to see what has changed.
  * ALL: replaced many occurences of "plugin" with the word "module".
  * ./src/interface/main.c: moved all satellite-specific configuration options
    to the satellite plugin.
  * ./po/*: updated translations.

  * ./plugins/chroma/i420_yuy2.h: optimized the 420 planar-to-packed chroma
    transformations. They're now PIC-friendly as well.
  * ./plugins/macosx/intf_open.c: added Open disc and network panels.
  * ./plugins/macosx/intf_controller.c: some changes to the control layout.
  * ./src/interface/main.c: i_warning_level is set to 0 to avoid unwanted
    verbose messages.
  * ./po/en_GB.po: British translation.
  * ./src/interface/main.c, ./src/misc/configuration.c: fixed the warning_level
    handling: "-v" and "--warning" are now working as they should and they also
    are cumulative (using -vv --warning=3 you end up with i_warning_level=5).
  * ./src/misc/configuration.c: support for short options. -V, -A, -I
    are back, and we also have -4 and -6 for IPv4/IPv6.
  * ./src/misc/configuration.c: added config_GetFloatVariable() and
    config_PutFloatVariable() to the config module.
  * ./src/video_output/video_output.c: added a --zoom <float> config option.
  * ./plugins/idct/idct_sparse.c: added a call to RestoreCPUState() in
    InitIDCT() so that the FPU is still available after a call to InitIDCT().
  * ./plugins/text/logger.c: deactivated stream buffering when logging to a
  * ./po/*: re-ran make update-po, fixed a few translations.
  * ./po/fr.po: completed the french translation.
  * ./plugins/gtk/, ./plugins/gtk/ synchronized a few
    strings between the Gtk+ and GNOME modules to avoid duplicate translations.
  * ./po/de.po: updated german translation. Many thanks to Thomas Graf.
  * ./doc/vlc-howto.sgml: URL & mailing-lists corrections.
  * ./plugins/gtk/gtk_preferences.c: the last category from the config options
    wasn't displayed.
  * po/nl.po: updated Netherlands translation of interface.
  * po/fr.po: completed french translations.

  * ./src/interface/main.c: added options to configure antenna (sat_lnb_lof1,
    sat_lnb_lof2, sat_lnb_slof and sat_diseqc). They only appear if satellite
    input is compiled.
  * ./plugins/satellite/input_satellite.c: fixed a few bugs in satellite
    input (device was not closed in every failure case, symbol rate limits
    in gnome interface were wrong).
  * ./plugins/gtk/*: added FEC choice in command line, gtk and gnome
    interfaces. Command line is now satellite:<frequency(Hz)>,
    <polarization(0=V,1=H)>,<fec(1=1/2,2=2/3...)>,<symbol rate(kbyte/s)>

  * ./po/ja.po: added Japanese translation from Fumio Nakayama
  * ./plugins/gtk/gtk_callbacks.c: fixed disc ejection code.
  * ./include/threads.h: new pthread implementation for WinNT/2K/XP. This
    implementation shouldn't be subject to race conditions as it is using
    SignalObjectAndWait() from the Win32 API. As this should be somehow slower
    than the old method (still used on Win9x), you can specify that you want
    to use the old method with the "fast_pthread" config option.
  * ./include/videolan/vlc.h: added a new p_main_sys global variable. This
    variable is a pointer to an OS specific structure which is defined in
    *_specific.h. This structure can be filled by the already existing
    System_Init() function and is a nice way to avoid too many #ifdefs.
  * ./include/ got rid of the DVD_DEVICE macro. We now use the
    dvd_device config option. This creates a small memory leak as we don't free
    the string obtained from config_GetPszVariable, but I think we can live
    with it for now.
  * ./ the SSE plugins are disabled on the mingw32 build as they
    don't work (because memalign is not implemented on win32, and malloc only
    aligns on an 8 bytes boundary).
  * ./INSTALL.win32: fixed a small mistake.
  * ./include/config.h: fixed config directory name for windows.
  * ./plugins/win32: the network dialog now respects the preferences settings.
  * ./src/input/input_ext-plugins.c: compilation fix. :-ppppp
  * ./plugins/memcpy/fastmemcpy.h: AltiVec-enabled version of fastmemcpy.
  * ./plugins/macosx/vout_macosx.c: use ImageBuffer instead of ScreenBuffer in
    OS X video output (should be faster).
  * ./src/interface/main.c: check that channels have been created before
    the call to network_ChannelJoin.
  * ./plugins/win32/*: fixed a few bugs in the preferences.

  * ./plugins/win32/*: the disc dialog now respects the preferences settings.
  * ./src/misc/configuration.c: small compilation fix.

  * ./doc/win32/Cross-Compile-Howto.txt: VLC-Win32 Cross-Compile Howto,
    courtesy of Bill Eldridge.
  * ./plugins/beos/vout_beos.cpp: improved overlay detection, default colour
    space selection.
  * ./plugins/gtk/gtk_preferences.c: allow the user to resize the configuration
  * ./plugins/gtk/gtk_preferences.c: moved config_GetIntVariable out of the
  * ./plugins/gtk/gtk_preferences.c: you can now set a maximum height for the
    configuration windows in the gtk and gnome plugins. This patch _doesn't
    change_ the look of the interface unless this interface tries to use more
    space than allowed, in which case scrollbars are added to make the
    navigation easy. Note that this setting only affects the default size the
    interface will use, the user is then free to change the size of the window
    as he wants.
  * ./plugins/gtk/gtk_preferences.c: tooltips are now triggered only in
    specific places. This is a lot less intrusive and annoying for the users.
  * ./plugins/win32: fixed the bug on exiting the vout pressing 'q'.
  * ./plugins/beos/*: implemented an "always-on-top" feature for the interface
    window, RGB16 Overlay supported again, resizing is now implemented
  * ./plugins/win32: subtitles should work, now.

    it confuses users and is not of any practical use.
  * ./src/interface/main.c: fix for sparc.
  * ./plugins/dvd/dvd_access.c: don't try to stat() the dvd drive letter on
  * ./plugins/directx/vout_directx.c: disabled YUV overlay double buffering for
    now, as it seems to actually be slower.
  * ./include/threads.h: temporary fix in vlc_cond_signal() for win32 (I really
    should use SignalObjectAndWait() on WinNT so we can avoid race conditions
    in the pthread code). This fixes a problem noticed on WinXP where vlc would
    freeze regularly and eat-up all the CPU (fun no?).
  * ./src/input/input_programs.c: when unselecting an ES, we must ged rid of
    p_es->p_pes so that it is regererated when we select this ES again. It made
    vlc segfault when switching from some stream to another, or when switching
    program in satellite input.
  * ./plugins/access/udp.c: UDP access plug-in can now receive MPTS (Multiple
    Program TS) and switch programs.
  * ./plugins/macosx/*: audio and video output go to time-constrained
    scheduling [OS X port].
  * ./plugins/gtk/gtk_preferences.c: some dirty ifdefs for a nicer gnome
    interface (gnome buttons, gnome dialogs).
  * ./po/nl.po: translation of user interface messages to Netherlands.
  * ./plugins/gtk/gnome.c, ./plugins/gtk/gtk.c: new options "gtk_hide_toltips"
    or "gnome_hide_tooltips". Tooltips are enabled by default. This option is
    only considered on module initialization.

  * ./extras/MacOSX/Resources/English.lproj/MainMenu.nib/objects.nib: deleted
    non-working fullscreen menu item [OS X].
  * ./plugins/access/http.c, ./plugins/access/udp.c: udp and http no longer
    modify p_input->psz_name.
  * ALL: various little portability fixes.
  * ./src/misc/configuration.c: changed the behaviour of the config file:
    now all the config options are saved. <string> config options which have
    no default value are also saved in the config file but as an empty string,
    and config_LoadConfigFile will ignore empty config options, which also
    means we cannot pass an empty string as a <string> config option. (this
    shouldn't matter anyway).
  * ./plugins/gtk/gtk_preferences.c: modified the gtk interface to save an
    empty <string> option as a NULL pointer.
  * ./src/misc/configuration.c: modified config_LoadConfigFile to consider an
    empty <string> option as a NULL pointer.
  * ./plugins/gtk/gtk_preferences.c: save button (inadvertently suppressed).
  * ./plugins/win32: added toolbar icons (thanks xav), we can no longer edit
    plugin names in the preferences :)
  * ./plugins/win32: the tool button for playlist is now a toggle button.
  * ./plugins/beos/InterfaceWindow.cpp: disabled controls if the playlist was
  * ./plugins/win32/*: added a win32 interface plugin, developed with Borland
    C++ Builder. To build the plugin, follow the instructions in
  * ./plugins/gtk/gtk_preferences.c: fixed an ugly structure, the tabs are not
    verticaly expanded as they were, small enhancements.
  * ./plugins/gtk/gnome.c, ./plugins/gtk/gtk.c, ./plugins/gtk/gtk_common.h: new
    Tooltips structure.
  * ./plugins/gtk/gtk_preferences.c: modifications of some widgets, the
    structure, cosmetic changes.
  * ./src/interface/main.c: typos, a couple of new descriptions.
  * ./src/interface/main.c: moved the "display" option from main to the
    relevant plugins. ( We now have the x11_display, xvideo_display,
    xmga_display and ggi_display options ).
  * ./INSTALL-win32.txt: fixed a little omission.
  * ./src/plugins/gtk/*: fixed a bug that made vlc segfault when choosing a
    program, change to another and come back to the first one.
  * ./src/plugins/gtk/*: added gtk and gnome interfaces for satellite input. We
    should find a way to hide the button if satellite support is not compiled.
  * ./plugins/beos/vout_beos.cpp: implemented correct scaling and used new
    window size variables. Beta always on top for the interface window. New
    cursor handling.
  * ./plugins/macosx/aout_macosx.c: fixed a problem in the MacOS X aout which
    caused the previously played audio frames to be played when there were no
    new frames available.
  * ./plugins/macosx/vout_macosx.c: MacOS X vout now uses the height/width
    calculated in video_output.c.
  * ./ Win32 fix.
  * ./ miscellaneous fixes for the OS X port.
  * ./src/video_output/video_output.c: the calculation for the initial video
    window dimensions is now done in video_output.c and made available into
    p_vout->i_window_height/width. This allows to get rid of duplicated code
    and unify the behaviour of the video output plugins. (not all the plugins
    have been modified because I didn't want to break anything).
  * ./src/misc/configuration.c: moved GetConfigurationFromCmdLine() into
    configuration.c and renamed it to config_LoadCmdLine().
  * ./src/misc/configuration.c: config_GetHomeDir doesn't use getpwuid_r
    anymore as this was creating some problems on solaris. This function now
    uses getpwuid and is called only once to store the home directory into the
    p_main structure.
  * ./plugins/satellite/*: added satellite input. It works with WinTV Nova
    card, and siemens 0.9.4 drivers from
  * ./src/interface/intf_msg.c: fixed stupid bug in stupid
    ConvertPrintfFormatString() function.
  * ./plugins/win32/waveout.c: fixed the "waveout not closing" bug. We need to
    reset the waveout device before closing it.
  * ./src/input/mpeg_system.c: fixed a bus error on UltraSparc.
  * ./plugins/sdl/vout_sdl.c: Win32 and Solaris compilation fix.
  * ./plugins/beos/vout_beos.cpp: improved scaling, correct aspect ratio even
    in full screen mode, duplicate code reduces and framework for Overlay and
    OpenGL modes in place.
  * ./src/misc/modules_plugin.h: kludge to allow the ALSA module to be
    compiled as a plugin. Please test.
  * ./include/modules.h: fixed a C++ warning.
  * ./plugins/vcd/input_vcd.c: VCD raw device fix, courtesy of Steven Schultz.
  * ./ better IPv6 detection. IPv6 is disabled under MacOS X (no
    inet_pton call).
  * ./src/input/input_programs.c: fixed some bugs in program management:
    selected ESs must be attached to the selected program.
  * ./plugins/aa: aalib output plugin courtesy of Sigmund Augdal.
  * ./ fixed a few bashisms.
  * ./src/misc/configuration.c: fixed build under Solaris.
  * ./TODO: updated todo list.

  * ./plugins/chroma/i420_rgb8.c: fixed a warning.
  * ./plugins/filter/deinterlace.c: fixed chroma deinterlacing.
  * ./plugins/kde/kde.cpp: the KDE interface compiles again.
  * ./plugins/mpeg_system/mpeg_es.c: fixed a segfault I introduced today.
  * ./plugins/network/ipv4.c: cosmetic fix.
  * ./src/interface/main.c: fixed a typo in the --help output.
  * ./src/misc/netutils.c: fixed a segfault in the vlcs communication; still
    unstable but solving other bugs won't do any good without rewriting the
    whole playlist code. Which I'm doing right now.
  * ./ MacOS X compile fixes.
  * ./src/input/input.c: skip "//" if we find "://" in a resource we have to
    play : this allows us touse the syntax udpstream://host.
  * ./extras/MacOSX_dvdioctl: removed outdated files.
  * ./plugins/fx/scope.c: fixed an infinite loop error.
  * ./plugins: fixed segfaults in various demux plugins.
  * ./plugins/sdl/vout_sdl.c: SDL_VIDEODRIVER can be specified from the
    command line; try "--vout sdl:aalib"
  * ./ fixed linking of the ipv4 plugin.
  * ./ DirectX plugin is now correctly detected and configured.
  * ./BUGS: updated bug list.
  * ./ ./configure --help should be a lot clearer now.
  * ./plugins/chroma/i420_rgb8.c: plain C 8 bpp transformation.
  * ./plugins/chroma/i420_rgb16.c: plain C 24/32 bpp transformations.
  * ./plugins/ggi/ggi.c: support for 8 bpp displays.
  * ./plugins/sdl/vout_sdl.c: support for 8 bpp displays.
  * ./plugins/x11/xcommon.c: support for 8 bpp displays.
  * ./src/video_output/video_output.c: fixed a segfault.
  * ./plugins/x11/xcommon.c: added an alternate fullscreen method. With this
    method, _nothing_ is allowed to be displayed on top of the video
    (especially not taskbars, etc...). Of course this can also be annoying
    sometimes, this is why it's an option.
  * ./src/misc/configuration.c: small fix for the config file. The parser
    assumes that the config file is divided into sections (a section is the
    config data for a plugin and begins with something like [foo]), so the
    comment for the beginning of the section must be after the section marker
    and not before.
  * ./plugins/beos/vout_beos.cpp: tidied code and prevented curruption on
    window not containing the video. Video window now returns to correct size
    and position after toggling full screen.
  * ./ more modules are plugins.
  * ./src/misc/configuration.c: changed ~/.VideoLan/vlc to ~/.videolan/vlcrc,
    and a few cosmetic changes (sorry Gildas for the butchery).
  * ./plugins/chroma/i420_rgb16.c: C version of the I420 to RV15/16 chroma.
  * ./src/misc/configuration.c: this the last piece of the new configuration
    module. You can now save your configuration options (only from the
    gtk/gnome interface for now). The config file will be saved as
  * ./plugins/spudec/spu_decoder.c: we now analyze the subtitle image
    data to find the border color and the inner colors when there was
    no way to find the palette data (network stream).
  * ./plugins/mpeg_system: fixed a parsing bug I introduced yesterday.
  * ./Makefile: fixed OS X compilation dependencies.
  * ./ fixed the endianness check under Solaris.
  * ./src/input/input.c: strings are now initialized to "" instead of NULL.
  * ./plugins/spudec/spu_decoder.c: we now properly support the subtitle
    palette information we get from the DVD. Subtitles rox !
  * ./src/video_output/vout_subpictures.c: removed all DVD-specific routines
    and put them into spu_decoder.c.
  * ./plugins/audio_output/aout_spdif.c: removed an ugly loop.
  * ./plugins/audio_output/aout_spdif.c: moved iec958/spdif encapsulation from
    ac3_spdif to aout_spdif. It will eventually allows to use ac3_adec or a52
    for spdif output.
  * ./plugins/dvd/dvd_access.c: fixed chapter selection at startup.
  * ./src/input/input_dec.c: p_es->p_demux_data is available in
    p_config->p_demux_data so that the input can pass information directly to
    the decoder. First application: aspect ratio for DVD is read from the ifo
    (should fix the buf with aspect ratio in anamorphic DVDs).
  * ./plugins/dvd/dvd_es.c: the DVD plugin also copies the spu yuv palette in
    p_demux_data so that the spudec can display subtitle with the right color
    (sam !).
  * ./plugins/gtk/gtk_menu.c: removed duplicate code and useless lock in gtk.
  * ./plugins/vcd/input_vcd.c: fixed EOF and Stop segfault in VCD input:
    input_BuffersEnd was being called twice.
  * ./AUTHORS: updated Tony Castley's e-mail.
  * ./plugins/beos/vout_beos.cpp: new resizing and scaling code. More in line
    with BeOS standards.
  * ./plugins/a52/a52.c: a52 plugin updated to use liba52-0.7.3 (which is now
    available in debian :)
  * ./src/interface/main.c: new configuration option to choose audio output
    format at runtime. It allows to select spdif pass-through decoder with
    --ac3_adec and to remove the ugly b_ac3 in main.h. As a consequence --spdif
    doesn't work anymore: you should use --ac3_adec pass.
  * ./src/interface/main.c: return the option name in error message for
    unknown option intead of the argument.
  * ./plugins/gtk/gtk_preferences.c: gtk config interface modified so you can
    only have one instance of a plugin config dialog box displayed at one time.
  * ./plugins/gtk/gtk_preferences.c: new GTK configuration interface. This
    interface is generated dynamically at run-time from the configuration data
    contained in each plugin.
  * ./src/misc/configuration.c: config_PutPszVariable and config_GetPszVariable
    are now thread safe.
  * ./src/misc/configuration.c: few modifications/optimizations to the config
  * ./include/config.h: got rid of all the _VAR macros in config.h.
  * ./plugins/vcd/input_vcd.c: added missing include (MacOS X port).
  * ./plugins/dvd/*: fixed EOF segfault at end of DVD.
  * ./src/input/input.c: buffer manager is renintialised at area change.
  * ./plugins/dvd/dvd_access.c, ./plugins/vcd/input_vcd.c: we now exit more
    cleanly on initialization error.
  * ./plugins/dvd/*: rewrote most functions in DVD plugin. Some old bugs might
    have been solved in the operation. The plugin some be more readable now,
    and should produce fewaer segfaults (I hope so :p)
  * ./plugins/vcd/input_vcd.c: added some tests in open.
  * ./plugins/alsa/aout_alsa.c: spdif support in the ALSA plugin.
  * ./plugins/vcd/input_vcd.c: when reaching the end of a track, moves to the
    following one.
  * ./src/interface/main.c: disabled the GNOME segfault dialog in debug
    mode. We want nice, clean segfaults, with huge core files and a lot
    of rattle noise.
  * ./plugins/dvd/dvd.c: I hope you liked this bug: DVD demux was always used.
  * ./plugins/dvd/dvd_demux.c: fixed demux plugin selection.
  * ./plugins/vcd/input_vcd.c: take the lock on stream in VCDInit. Please
    test, as I don't have any VCD to do it.
  * ./plugins/ac3_adec/ac3_parse.c: ac3dec is now less verbose.
  * ./src/interface/interface.c: fixed a deadlock when seeking the
    stream using the keyboard arrows.
  * ./plugins/gtk/gtk_display.c: removed an occurance of former angle item in
  * ./plugins/dvd/input_dvd.c, ./plugins/dvdread/input_dvdread.c: fixed a bug
    in ES management introduced lately in DVD/DvdRead.
  * ./plugins/dvd/*: beginning of reorganisation in DVD plugin source files,
    in order to try to make it easier to understand. There is some work left
    though :p.
  * ./plugins/vcd/vcd.c: decreased the score for VCD plugin, as the VCD demuxer
    was used even for DVD :p. It should make autodetection work.
  * ./plugins/vcd/input_vcd.c: modified vcd input for the new input III. Still
    have problems with end of tracks.
  * ./plugins/vcd/vcd.c: modified the command line, as stef did for the DVD.
  * ./plugins/dvd/input_dvd.c: DVD demux was no longer selected under win32.
  * ./plugins/dvd/dvd_summary.c, ./plugins/dvdread/input_dvdread.c: DVD angle
    is now handled through a program structure, so that the interface needs
    nothing specific to change angle.
  * ./src/input/input_clock.c: fixed a bug in clock management where ES without
    a program couldn't get timestamped.
  * ./plugins/gtk/*: fixed program management in gnome/gtk. Program now also
    appears in popup.
  * ./plugins/gtk/gtk_menu.c: in interface, only display ES associated with
    the selected program, or with no program at all.
  * ./src/input/input.c: fixed typo in the win32 change to the input parser.
  * ./plugins/dvd/input_dvd.c, ./plugins/dvdread/input_dvdread.c: more complete
    command line parsing for DVD, hopefully working this time.
  * ./plugins/network/ipv6.c: IPv6 network module, courtesy of Alexis Guillard
    <>, for BT.
  * ./src/interface/main.c: --6 and --4 options to force IPv6 or IPv4 (FIXME:
    it should be -6 and -4 but I don't know how to do it with the new
    configuration module).
  * ./src/misc/netutils.c: channel manager now uses a socket from the network
    plug-in and is more portable (and probably broken, too :)
  * ./plugins/mpeg_system/mpeg_ps.c, ./plugins/mpeg_system/mpeg_ts.c:
    input_ReadPS and input_ReadTS are now in mpeg_system.c to be more easily
    reused by plug-ins other than mpeg_ps and mpeg_ts.
  * ./src/audio_output/audio_output.c: we now make sure the aout plugin buffers
    always contain between AOUT_BUFFER_DURATION/2 and AOUT_BUFFER_DURATION*3/2
    worth of audio. This should solve the audio buffer underruns.
  * ./src/input/input.c: fix for the bug in input when filename contains a '@'
  * ./src/input/input.c: simplified the win32 specific changes to the input
    parser. (I think we can safely assume that no access plugin name will have
    a length of one character).
  * ./plugins/dvd/dvd.c: DVD access plugin is only called if specified under
    windows (no automatic detection).
  * ./plugins/dvd/input_dvd.c: replaced setenv with putenv.
  * ./plugins/gtk/gtk_open.c: fixed a bug in gtk.
  * ./plugins/dvd/input_dvd.c: new command line for DVD, to get rid of global
    options input_title or so.
  * ./Makefile: added network to the list of the plugins directories.
  * ./plugins/dvd/input_dvd.c: fixed DVD input under Win32.

  * ./plugins/macosx/intf_macosx.c: MacOS X intf now returns, allowing vlc to
    terminate properly.
  * ./Makefile: added a new make target: package-macosx.
  * ./plugins/gtk/gtk_playlist.c: Win32 compilation fixes (mingw includes
  * ./ configure now checks for ddraw.h and not directx.h.
  * ./plugins/directx/vout_directx.c: don't include directx.h anymore (this
    file isn't part of the directx sdk).
  * ./plugins/waveout/waveout.c: moved all the stuff from aout_waveout.c
    directly into waveout.c (I don't know what I was thinking about when I
    created these two files ;-)
  * ./plugins/waveout/waveout.c: until we fix the audio buffer underrun
    problem, waveout will be the default audio output on win32 (instead of
  * ALL: got rid of *_Probe functions because most of them were duplicates
    of the real _Init or _Create functions. That's 1000 lines of code gained.
  * ./src/misc/modules.c: we try not to keep the global lock in module_Need,
    which should speed up output spawning.
  * ./plugins/dummy/input_dummy.c: fixed vlc:quit command.
  * ./plugins/gtk/gtk_playlist.c: compilation fix.
  * ./plugins/macosx/*: preliminary fixes for the vout4 port.
  * ./plugins/gtk/*: Win32 fixes.
  * ./plugins/beos/*: BeOS fixes from Rudolf Cornelissen.
  * ./src/interface/main.c: --desync now really accepts a value in ms.
  * ./plugins/vcd/input_vcd.c: fixed a crash when not opening a VCD.
  * ./src/video_output/vout_subpictures.c: fixed subtitles under BeOS and
    other architectures which don't support overlay.
  * ./plugins/a52/a52.c: compilation fix (include stdint.h).
  * ./plugins/a52/a52.c: fixed a SEGV.
  * ./plugins/beos/vout_beos.cpp: ported the BeOS RGB video output to
    vout4. The overlay video output still needs to be written though.
  * ./plugins/a52/*: just renamed the liba52_adec plugin into a52 to comply
    with the naming convention used by the other plugins.
  * ./plugins/lirc/lirc.c: IR remote control plugin by Sigmund Augdal
    <>, activate with --enable-lirc.
  * ./ put liba52_adec in a builtin for PIC/non-PIC reasons.
  * ./plugins/liba52_adec/*: new AC3 decoder plugin using liba52 from Aaron
    Holtzman and Michel Lespinasse.  This plugin isn't used by default, you
    have to specify: --ac3_adec liba52.
  * ./src/misc/modules.c: changed module_Need to make it possible to
    have several modules with the same shortcut name.
  * ./plugins/gtk/gtk_open.c: fixed a bug in the network dialog.
  * ./src/misc/modules_plugin.h: added mstrtime() to module_symbols_t so we
    can compile the mpeg_vdec plugin with TRACE mode enabled.
  * ./plugins/ac3_spdif/ac3_spdif.c: fixed ac3_spdif which has been broken
  * ./plugins/ac3_adec/ac3_adec.c: check frequency in ac3_adec and change fifo
    if needed.
  * ./src/audio_output/audio_output.c: moved initialisation of p_aout from
    plugins to audio_output.c; if audio output rate is specified at launch
    time, we try to use it by default.
  * ./plugins/chroma/i420_rgb16.c: MMX YUV to RGB transformation for 15bpp.
  * ./plugins/directx/vout_directx.c: added double-buffering for the directx
    plugin in overlay mode.
  * ./plugins/directx/vout_directx.c: several directx bug-fixes: implemented
    the right behaviour on exit, fixed bug preventing the creation of several
    windows  (the wall filter is working now :-)), fixed unnecessary background
    redraws (it made the video flicker), fixed bug where we were losing the
    video display because of lost surfaces in video memory, when using hardware
    overlay, the output window will now specify "(using hardware overlay)".
  * ./plugins/x11/xcommon.c: we don't use DPMS functions if they are
    not available.
  * ./plugins/win32/waveout.c: added a new very simple audio plugin for
    Win32. This plugin uses the waveOut API which is a lot easier to use for
    streaming stuff than directsound. (you don't have to take care of
    underflows anymore because it doesn't use circular buffers). If you are
    having a lot of underflows, this plugin is currently better adapted than
    the directx plugin.
  * ./src/audio_output/audio_output.c: moved some initialization stuff in

  * ./plugins/mpeg_adec/mpeg_adec.c: enabled --stereo option for streams that
    pretend to be mono while they are not.
  * ./plugins/ac3_adec/ac3_adec.c: fixed an alignment issue in the ac3 decoder.
  * ./src/input/input_dec.c: decoders do not necessarily use bit stream (see
    mad plug-in).
  * ./plugins/mad/mad_adec.c: mad PTS should finally be accurate.
  * ./ some configure changes.
  * ./plugins/mad/mad_adec.c: libmad_input now takes one frame at a time (see
    mad_adec.h for defines)
  * ./plugins/mad/mad_libmad.c: audio_linear_dither() gives better sound
    quality then s24_to_s16_pcm(), but also makes audio artefacts louder so
    disabled it for now.
  * ./plugins/mad/mad_libmad.c: cleaned up libmad_output.
  * ./plugins/mad/mad_adec.c: cleaned up InitThread.
  * ./plugins/mad/mad_adec.h: made buffer size match libmad's expectations.
  * ./plugins/mad/DESIGN: updated documentation.
  * ./plugins/directx/vout_events.c: fixed crashes on exit in the directx
  * ./src/video_output/vout_pictures.c: vout_PlacePicture is now accepting
    picture width=height=0.
  * ./ added extra checks for strange compilers such as
    Borland C++ which do not support all gcc options. Note that vlc does
    not compile with bcc32 yet, but is getting closer and closer to.
  * ./plugins/win32: skeleton for the win32 interface Ipkiss is developing.
  * ./config.guess ./config.sub: latest GNU versions.
  * ./ when possible, xvideo is compiled as a plugin.
  * ./vlc.spec: fixed a few minor inaccuracies.
  * ./debian/control: vlc-gui is no longer depended on, but rather recommended.
  * ./src/interface/main.c: --spumargin flag; use this to force displaying
    subtitles at the bottom of the screen instead of putting them in the
    middle, for instance: `--spumargin 5'.
  * ./plugins/qnx/qnx.c, ./plugins/macosx/macosx.c, ./plugins/beos/beos.cpp:
    converted the plugin initialization code of the macosx, beos and qnx
    code. (please note that they should still not compile as they need
    to be adapted to the new Vout4 architecture)
  * ./plugins/directx/vout_directx.c: major rewrite of the directx video
    plugin to adapt it to the new vout4 architecture. This plugin has also
    been through a major clean-up and it is now much more robust and optimized.
  * ./plugins/gtk/gtk_playlist.c: fixed a few problems with the win32 build.
  * ./src/interface/main.c: replaced the "overlay" command line option with
    "nooverlay". The former was confusing and useless because overlays were
    used by default anyway.
  * ./vlc.spec: imported MandrakeSoft's new spec file.
  * ./debian/control: fixed build-dependencies for vlc-mad.
  * ./debian/rules: fixed the vlc-arts and vlc-mad package builds.

  * ./src/audio_output/audio_output.c: added support for S8 and U16 aout.
  * ./debian/control: fixed Debian build-depends.
  * ./include/config.h: changed RELEASE to HAVE_RELEASE because RELEASE
    is already defined in <scsi/scsi.h> under Linux.
  * ./plugins/mad/mad_adec.c: fixed issues in the PTS handling of the mad
    plug-in (incomplete).
  * ./src/input/input_ext-dec.c: more precise way to retrieve a PTS from the
    bit stream.
  * ./INSTALL.libmad: configure, build and install instructions for libmad
    library and mad plugin.
  * ./plugins/mad/mad_adec.c: smooth sound (not tested on iPaq).
  * ./src/audio_output/aout_common.c: le coup de grce: all the code in audio
    output is now factorized (except for ac3 spdif) in aout_common.c/.h.
  * ./src/audio_output/aout_common.h: aout thread functions are declared with
    a macro.
  * ./src/audio_output/audio_output.c: HUGE cleanings in audio output: removed
    AOUT_INTF_*_FIFO, which where not used.
  * ./src/audio_output/aout_common.c: factored S16StereoPlay, U8MonoPlay, and
    so on.., in a single function aout_FillBuffer (unsigned 8bit may be broken,
    but I have no stream to test with :(
  * ./ a few fixes for the Win32 build.
  * ./src/video_output/video_output.c: fixed all the problems related to
  * ./src/misc/modules.c: fixed a compile issue under platforms without
  * ./src/interface/intf_eject.c: MacOS X port.
  * ./plugins/chroma/i420_rgb16.c: 24/32 bpp software YUV.
  * ./plugins/ggi/ggi.c: activated double buffering.
  * ./src/video_output/vout_pictures.c: we create more Xv pictures to
    get smoother rendering.
  * ./plugins/mad/mad_libmad.c: removed aout_CreateFifo from mad_adec.c
    InitThread() and added it to mad_libmad.c.
  * ./src/interface/intf_eject.c: BSD compilation fix suggested by Steven M.
  * ./src/audio_output/aout_s16.c: beginning of code factorization in
    aout_s16 (more cleaning will come). As for libmad, I have tried to create
    the aout fifo in libmad_output, to open it with the right sample rate, but
    strangely it didn't work.
  * ./src/input/input.c: fixed a few segfaults caused by the dummy plugin.
  * ./plugins/mpeg_adec/mpeg_adec.c: fixed a segfault due to misuse of
  * ./plugins/x11/xcommon.c: replaced XFlush with XSync. This must be the
    fourth time someone has to commit this, so I added a reminder :-)
  * ./plugins/mpeg_system/input_ts.c: hopefully fixed a bug in TS input, that
    caused a segfault when there was no network stream.
  * ./src/interface/intf_eject.c: BSD/OS port by Steven M. Schultz.
  * ./include/modules_inner.h: replaced _X with __VLC_SYMBOL because _X was
    already a system macro under MacOS X.
  * ./plugins/dummy/dummy.c: fixed vlc:loop, vlc:quit, etc. entries.
  * ./plugins/glide/glide.c: activated double buffering.
  * ./plugins/mga/xmga.c: started writing an xmga plugin; doesn't work yet.
  * ./src/input/input.c: fixed the input memory leak, and the insane thread
    spawning we got with vlc:loop.
  * ./src/misc/intf_eject.c: disc ejection routine courtesy of Julien Blache,
    currently Linux-only.
  * ./src/audio_output/aout_ext-dec.c: better communication between audio
    decoder and output: aout plugins are now opened directly in the right
    mode (works with mpeg_adec and ac3_adec, not tested with mad).
  * ./src/audio_output/audio_output.c: first attempt to implement mono output
    (doesn't work yet).
  * ./plugins/dvdread/input_dvdread.c: DVDRead plugins works again more or
    less ; major bugs remain but it is usable. It is selected by default if
    you have it compiled.
  * ./plugins/mpeg_vdec/vpar_headers.c: fixed a bug in QuantMatrixExtension,
    many thanks to "Thomas L. Wood" <> !
  * ./debian/control: updated list of supported architectures.
  * ./share/*: added 16x16 and 32x32 versions of PNG icons.
  * ./plugins/mga/mga.c: removed the mgammx module and put the code in
    the chroma_i420_ymga module instead. This introduces a slight
    performance issue as we now need to memcpy() the Y plane, but I have
    some vout4 enhancements on their way which make this point moot.
  * ./debian/changelog: imported official Debian changelog.
  * ./debian/control: activated the vlc-mad and vlc-arts packages; package
    builds should now work again.
  * ./plugins/dvd/dvd.c: solved a symbol resolution issue when vlc was
    compiled without libdvdcss which overflowed the return stack.
  * ./plugins/ggi/ggi.c: ported the GGI plugin to vout4.
  * ./plugins/glide/glide.c: ported the Glide plugin to vout4 (untested).
  * ./src/input/input.c: prepared everything for multi-input mode; since
    no interface is yet prepared to handle this, I changed them so that
    they just use the first available input for now. This may break other
    things, but I promise I'll eventually repair everything :-)
  * ./plugins/mga/mga.c: pipeline and cache optimizations.
  * ./plugins/mga/mga.c: MMX-accelerated version of the MGA plugin.
  * ./plugins/mpeg_vdec/Makefile: little workaround for PA-Risc compilation.
  * ./plugins/mad/mad_libmad.c: optimized libmad_output() for smoother sound.
    It is still not optimal.
  * ./plugins/fb/fb.c: ported the framebuffer video output to vout4.
  * ./src/audio_output/aout_s16.c: fixed a segfault. It may have unexpected
    side effects because I don't know this part of the code, but at least
    it doesn't crash anymore.
  * ./plugins/beos/beos.cpp: first attempt at porting the BeOS plugin to the
    new video output and module systems. Doesn't work nor even compile yet.
  * ./ we now check the gtk-config version.
  * ./plugins/mga/mga.c: we use the MGA_VID_FSEL ioctl to select the
    frame to be displayed. Unfortunately, increasing the number of
    frames doesn't seem to work and makes the picture stutter...
  * ./Makefile: fixed a bug when no builtins were selected.
  * ./plugins/mga/mga.c: ported the MGA video output to vout4. Only does YV12
    for the moment, and there is a strange bug with some streams which gives
    only a green image. Needs to be looked at.
  * ./plugins/x11/xcommon.c: fixed a few typos.
  * ./plugins/mad/DESIGN: updated documentation.
  * ./plugins/mad/TODO: updated TODO list.
  * ./plugins/mad/BUGS: updated documentation.
  * ./plugins/mad/mad_libmad.h: removed unused prototype from headerfile.
  * ./ fix for obscure architectures like hppa where target_os
    isn't properly detected.
  * ./include/video_output.h: got rid of pf_setpalette; I'll find a nicer way.
  * ./plugins/mga.c: fixed MGA module compilation. Doesn't work yet, though.
  * ./include/common.h: hton64 is now an inline function.
  * ./src/video_output/vout_pictures.c et al.: vout4 now automatically
    detects when two chroma formats are the same, such as UYVY/Y422, or
    roughly equivalent, such as I420/YV12. Plugins need not worry about
    conversion anymore.
  * ./BUGS: added a list of known bugs. Please add your findings!
  * ./MODULES: added a short description of each module. Maybe we should
    add more details to make this file really useful.
  * ./doc/bugreport-howto.txt: wishful thinking...
  * ./Makefile: added a workaround for the fact that .c files don't depend
    on <videolan/vlc.h>.
  * ./plugins/memcpy/memcpy.c: all memcpy modules are now built from the same
    single file.
  * ./src/interface/main.c: added the --nommx, --no3dnow, --nommxext, --nosse
    and --noaltivec options to vlc.
  * ./ removed the --disable-mmx option, now useless because
    of the vlc --no* options.
  * ./src/interface/main.c: fixed a crash caused by the memcpy module
    being released too early.
  * ./include/video.h: more vout4 changes, including margin support, more
    FOURCC formats recognized, transparent support of identical or almost
    identical FOURCC formats.
  * ./include/video_output.h: added a vout_Render function to video output
    modules which is to be executed before vout_Display.
  * ./include/common.h: this header is back.
  * ./plugins/chroma/i420_rgb.c: planar YUV 4:2:0 to packed RGB conversion
    functions, mostly taken from vout3's yuv functions, but heavily modified
    to use FAST_MEMCPY and to handle image dimensions which are not multiples
    of 16. Not all functions have been written yet, though.
  * ./plugins/chroma/i420_yuy2.c: planar YUV 4:2:0 to packed YUV conversion
    functions, various targets such as 4:2:2 YUYV, YVYU, UYVY, or 2:1:1 YUYV,
    with accelerated MMX versions.
  * ./plugins/chroma/i422_yuy2.c: same as i420_yuy2.c but takes planar YUV
    4:2:2 pictures in input. With accelerated MMX versions as well. This plugin
    makes it possible to display 4:2:2 files on most video cards without the
    quality loss of 4:2:0 downsampling.
  * ./plugins/filter/*: thanks to the vout_Render function, all filters now
    output their data perfectly in sync.
  * ./plugins/dvdread/Makefile: fix to prevent unnecessary target rebuilds.
  * ./plugins/sdl/vout_sdl.c: support for YV12, UYVY, YUY2 and YVYU overlays.
  * ./plugins/x11/xcommon.c: support for I420, YV12, YUY2 and Y211 overlays.
  * ./ChangeLog: imported the 0.2.92 changes, unrolled current CVS changes.
  * ./include/config.h et al.: this file is no longer generated.
  * ./include/video.h: we use the FOURCC definition of a chroma format to
    describe picture types (see
  * ./plugins/dvdread/input_dvdread.c: compilation fix by Eyal Lebedinsky.
  * ./plugins/x11/xcommon.c: fixed the XShm operations order.
  * ./plugins/x11/xcommon.c: small optimizations.
  * ./plugins/x11/xcommon.c: removed unused code.
  * ./plugins/x11/xcommon.c: your old window position and size are now restored
    when you come out of fullscreen mode.
  * ./plugins/esd/esd.c: fixed detection of the esd plugin.
  * ./plugins/mpeg_system/input_ts.c: fixed the ts plugin's input type
  * ./plugins/x11/xcommon.c: fixed the BadCursor error in the x11 and xvideo
    plugins. For real this time (unlike my 2001/08/03 fix :p).
  * ./plugins/filter/wall.c: made the wall filter work a bit better. It now
    spawns a 3x2 mosaic, but this will eventually be configurable,  la
    `--filter wall:3x3'.
  * ./plugins/arts/arts.c: fixed the aRts audio output plugin.
  * ./ removed duplicate function checks.
  * ./Makefile.modules: added extra magic so that the module Makefiles are now
    ridiculously simple. And I mean *simple*. Check it! This will make a
    possible switch to full autoconf/automake a lot easier.
  * ./include/modules_inner.h: added the vlc version name to the plugin
    symbols, to be sure we only load plugins with the same version number. A
    nasty consequence is that you need to rebuild your tree after midnight if
    you are using a CVS tree :-)
  * ./include/modules_export.h: got rid of modules_export.h by #defining
    exported functions in the same header as their prototype.
  * ./include/videolan/vlc.h: added modules_inner.h and other commonly used .h
    files to common.h so there are less and less files to include, and renamed
    common.h to <videolan/vlc.h>.
  * ./src/misc/tests.c: first modifications to the module handling system
    towards my ultimate goal to get rid of the *_Probe functions. Got rid of
    TestMethod and TestCPU, as well as src/misc/tests.c.
  * ./plugins/chroma/yv12_rgb8.c, ./plugins/chroma/yv12_rgb16.c: wrote the
    chroma plugin handling functions. No YUV functions have been ported yet
    because it'ls a lot of work, but the core system works, I tried it with a
    naive yv12->rgb16 plugin (which will disappear when the real functions are
  * ./plugins/dvd/dvd_summary.c: made a lot of functions one-liners to avoid
    wasting too many output lines.
  * ./plugins/dvd/input_dvd.c: fixed a segfault in DVDInit.
  * ./plugins/gtk/ Added a script to be run after Glade
    has generated its C files.
  * ./plugins/kde/*: did some work on the KDE interface to make it suck a bit
    less. It still segfaults, but at least it runs and it looks less ugly.
  * ./plugins/sdl/vout_sdl.c: RGB SDL rendering works again, though in 16bpp
  * ./plugins/vcd/linux_cdrom_tools.c: made this file independent of any vlc
    structure so that it'll be easily put in a library. Maybe libdvdcss?
  * ./plugins/vcd/input_vcd.c: fixed VCD date display.
  * ./plugins/x11/*: merged vout_xvideo.c, vout_x11.c and vout_common.c into
  * ./plugins/x11/xcommon.c: wrote non-Shm XVideo output.
  * ./plugins/x11/xcommon.c: made X11 output work again. Still pretty unstable,
    only works for 16bpp.
  * ./po/fr.po: additional french translation. Any taker for the rest?
  * ./src/video_output/video_output.c: fixed a segfault when the allocated
    pictures were not direct buffers.
  * ./share/*: replaced 48x48 .xpm images with 32x32 ones to conform to Debian
    policy (Closes Debian bug #126939).
  * ./Makefile: removed the automatic ./configure launch when running
    `make all' for the first time.
  * ./plugins/filter/distort.c: --filter distort:ripple (Ok, ok, I promise it's
    the last one !! :-)
  * ./ fixed compilation with dvdcss disabled.
  * ./ fixed compilation with plugins disabled.
  * ./plugins/dvd/input_dvd.c, ./plugins/vcd/input_vcd.c: removed useless
    variables in the VCD and DVD plugins.
  * ./plugins/vcd/input_vcd.c: fixed a function which was returning
    "struct foo" in the VCD plugin.
  * ./plugins/x11/xcommon.c: fixed the old  XVideo eats more and more CPU 
    bug I mistakenly reintroduced in my first vout4 commit.
  * ./src/misc/modules: we now stop at the first ':' when looking for a module
    name, to easily pass information to the modules. Possible example:
    --vout sdl:software, implementation of such an option is left as an
  * ./plugins/filter/filter.c: merged filter_bob and filter_bob422 into
    filter_bob. Use --filter bob to deinterlace 422 into 420 as well.
  * ALL: factorized code common to most filters and the video output, optimized

  * ./plugins/filter/transform.c, ./plugins/filter/distort.c: two new
    absolutely useless, CPU-eating, resource-wasting, but fun filters: enjoy
    `transform', which performs flips and 90 rotations, and `distort', which
    performs animated image effects (currently only a naive sine wave is
    implemented). Usage examples: --filter transform:hflip,

  * ./plugins/x11/xcommon.c: added missing XSync() in the XVideo plugin.
  * ./plugins/filter/deinterlace.c: pathetic attempt at a 4:2:2 renderer and
    deinterlacer, combining the most awful line dropping techniques of both BOB
    and 422 to 420 downscaling. Don't worry, it should only survive for a
    couple of days.
  * ./plugins/filter/wall.c: new stupid plugin: "--filter wall" for split-image
    playback :-) (will evolve into a real image wall plugin when I have time)
  * ./plugins/filter/bob.c, ./plugins/filter/invert.c: filter plugins. Not very
    polished (please don't look at how the dates are calculated!), but worth a
    try. Use the following flags: "--filter invert" for inverse video,
    "--filter bob" for BOB deinterlacing
  * ./src/video_output/vout_pictures.c: buffer choice optimizations - vout4
    should eat even less CPU now.
  * ./src/video_output/video_output.c: fixed aspect ratio handling.
  * ./src/interface/main.c: additional fixes for OSes with no gettext (thanks
    to ej0).
  * ./ don't try to use gettext if we don't have GNU gettext. This
    may change in the future though (most GNU software seems to include a local
    copy of gettext in case the operating system doesn't provide it).
  * ./debian/rules, ./debian/control: added vlc-arts to the debian package
  * ./po/ru.po: (very old) russian translation courtesy of Valek Filippov
  * ./po/fr.po: fixed a charset issue in the french translation.
  * ./config.guess, ./config.sub: updated these files from GNU's latest
  * ./po/vlc.pot: added vlc.pot skeleton for translators.
  * ./src/interface/intf_channels.c, ./include/keystrokes.h: removed unused
  * ./include/common.h: put common_win32.h back into common.h -- it wasn't that
    big and we should not multiply header files.
  * ./src/interface/main.c: added gettext support by Thomas Graf
    <>, may be broken on other platforms but we'll only see
    it when I'm finished with vout 4 :-)
  * ./src/video_output/*: new video output version 4, featuring direct to YUV
    buffer decoding, non-ugly subtitle blending, XVideo and SDL video output.
  * ./plugins/spudec/*: renamed spu_dec to spudec and mad_adec to mad to stay
    coherent with other plugins. Also, renamed mpeg to mpeg_system.
  * ./AUTHORS: added jobi.

  * Fixed a segfault in the aRts plugin.
  * Fixed a bug in DecoderError.
  * Next Generation Buffer Manager.
  * All decoders enter DecoderError() in case of error, even if they
    haven't allocated all their data. This prevents the input from getting
    stuck if a decoder has failed its initialization.
  * Backported lool's fix for the Gtk+ playlist crash.
  * If $DISPLAY isn't set, don't try to run the Gtk+ interface.
  * Fixed a segfault in input_dvd.c:DVDInit.

  * Initialize SDL before opening the SDL audio output.
  * Prevent two SDL video outputs or audio outputs to be spawned at the
    same time to avoid ugly crashes.
  * TS input: bugfix in DecodePAT and minor optimizations elsewhere.
  * TS input: we now check that the contents of the PAT has changed
    before updating it, instead of just relying on its version number.
  * Disabled broken ALSA audio output. Closes Debian bugs #110869 and #119846.
  * Fixed build dependencies on libasound2-dev. Closes Debian bug #121057.
  * Changed so that libXv_pic is used instead of libXv.a when
    available. Closes Debian bug #111790.
  * CPU detection under BeOS.
  * Fixed XVideo port selection.
  * Fixed 4:2:2 software rendering.

  * Fixed unnecessary target remake (recursive make is harmful !).
  * Fixed a potential BeOS linking issue.
  * Fixed a minor bug in input.c.
  * Fixed an issue in Makefile.dep causing to rebuild unnecessary files
    in the gtk/gnome plugins.

  * Borrowed MPlayer's fast memcpy() routines. Best is autodetected, choose
    "--memcpy <whatever>" to choose one from c, mmx, mmxext or 3dn.
  * Added versioned build-dep to libasound2-dev (Closes Debian bug #121057).
  * Updated Gtk/GNOME interfaces to use "udpstream" instead of "ts".
  * More checks for GTK headers.
  * Fixed a crash when pausing.
  * Fixed numerous bugs in ES selection.
  * Fixed stupid bug in vout_Manage. It sometimes called SetDSequenceMatrix
    when there was no valid sequence.
  * Hopeless fix for the input netlist corruption bug.
  * Implemented simple BDirectWindow (DMA) support.
  * DeleteDecoderConfig wasn't freeing (anymore) the packets left in the
    decoder fifo. This bug was creating an io_vec starving on title change
    when playing DVDs.
  * Removed a bug in the Makefile that made the CVS-snapshots building fail.
  * Added "#include <string.>" to include/threads.h.
  * Removed the mutex the vout and intf thread (were supposed to use)
    for syncronizing acces to the p_vout->p_sys structure.
  * Added error checking in pthread wrapper; as a result, intf_msg.h must
    now be included *before* threads.h.
  * Changed all files to include intf_msg.h before threads.h; while I was
    at it, I update the copyright notices.
  * Removed the obsolete darwin plug-in.
  * Fixed a deadlock (bug reported by marcari).
  * Various (sometimes hopeless) fixes to try to improve xvideo stability.
  * Documentation updates.
  * Updated man page.
  * dvd:<device>[@<raw device>] to avoid device namespace collision under
  * Fixed a compilation issue under Win32.
  * Fixed a potential packet corruption in the DVD input.
  * Changed the protocol version for communication between vlc and vlcs
    from 12 to 13 (due to change from ts:// to udpstream://)
  * Big clean-up to allow compiling every module as plugins.
  * Added bytes_swap.h to provide ntoh() and htol() on Win32. With this
    change we don't have to link winsock2 with every plugin anymore. This
    should also give us a slight speed increase.
  * Added #define WIN32_LEAN_AND_MEAN in threads.h to speed-up compilation
    on Win32.
  * Modified ac_downmix_3dn and sse so they compile with the latest gcc for
  * Support for libdvdread.
  * Added "Video" menu hint to debian/*menu (Closes Debian bug #121036).
  * Major rewrite of the network layer. only supported syntax is:
  * Don`t use long long, use u64/s64 (int_types.h).
  * Fixed a stale pointer in mpeg_vdec_Run().
  * (Hopefully) fixed the network connect() bug under UNIX.
  * aRts audio output courtesy of Emmanuel Blindauer <>.
  * Fix to the esd plugin when esd-config --cflags is nonempty.
  * --channels puts gtk/gnome in multi-channel network mode.
  * The network window of the interface reports the values of the environment
  * Channels mode excludes vls configuration.
  * The vlc does not try to bind by default when you select
    channels mode.
  * Fixed MacOS X 10.1 network input, thanks to Mathias Kretschmer
  * Fixed a few crashes due to race conditions in the decoder spawning.
  * Removed unused code here and there.
  * Fixed a bug in altivec detection on MacOS X.
  * It seems that the 'focus' bug under WinME is solved.
  * Updated the INSTALL-win32.txt file.
  * The ./configure script is more friendly for Win32 users.
  * Moved warning message to debug message in spdif pass-through plugin.
  * Changed a bit the wait time. It works better here, please test.
  * The default file-translation mode was not being set under win32.
  * Fixed heap corruption issues in ac3dec (thanks reno).
  * Fixed a crash when using `--input dvd /dev/dvd' instead of `dvd:/dev/dvd'.
  * configure should no longer assume AltiVec is supported when it actually
    isn't with buggy compilers and/or pre-set $CFLAGS.
  * Commited my little release-howto (only useful to core vlc developers).
  * Closing Debian bug #119369 which was fixed a while ago.

  * Added FAQ.
  * New --channelserver switch.
  * Documentation updates.
  * ipkg script for Familiar Linux 0.5 & bug fix in debian/rules.
  * Disabled DirectX audio output for the time being.
  * Added Oct's NSIS installer script. It will probably not work for you,
    but I need it to build the Win32 auto installer.
  * Automatic handling of the Channel Server's response in network mode.
  * GetMACAddress takes the interface defined in the environment variable
    vlc_iface instead of eth0.
  * Fixed bug with MPEG audio in TS streams.
  * Fixed compilation (and quite probably runtime) issues under IA64
    due to mixed int/void* casts.
  * Merged DVD netlist with input netlist to remove duplicated code.
  * BSD/OS VCD patch, courtesy of Steven M. Schultz <sms@TO.GD-ES.COM>.

  * Fixed some win32 64-bit issues.
  * Fixed some win32 compile issues.
  * Don't use long long, use u64/s64 (int_types.h).
  * Move function that translates language codes into country name in src/misc
    so that every plugin can use it.
  * Changed the name of a function in dvd_udf.c to fit with the forthcoming
    libdvdread plugin.
  * Corrected  long time bug (around 0.2.81 I think), that created a
    corruption in ifo data. This was the reason why some DVDs that worked with
    0.2.80 no longer worked with newer version of vlc. They should work again
  * New --enable-release config option.
  * Removed deprecated code and structures.
  * Maybe corrected aspect ratio issue in fullscreen xvideo.

    pf_init fails.
  * Changed chapter selection buttons aspect to try and differentiate them
    from title selection ones.
