      - Added command line option '--stdout <filename>' which redirects stdout
          and stderr to the specified file. This option should mainly be useful
          on Win32.
      - On Win32, vlc now has an icon associated to the .exe file, and is a full
          GUI application (you don't have this annoying dos command box anymore)
      - Added INSTALL-win32.txt for specific details to the Win32 port.
      
      I've tested these changes on Win32 and Linux, let's hope I didn't break
        vlc for other platforms.

        * Added gprof profiling support with --enable-profiling.
      
          It works at last! configure with --enable-profiling, build, run
       vlc (you may want to add --noaudio, it currently segfaults with sound
       here) and launch "gprof vlc" when finished.
      
          To make gprof work with multithreaded programs, one needs to set the
       internal ITIMER_PROF timer for each new thread launched. I did this
       through a wrapper in vlc_thread_create (see include/threads.h).

        * DirectX enhancements by Gildas Bazin, such as software rendering.
        * Merged dvdcss_init and dvdcss_open into dvdcss_open, and dvdcss_close
          and dvdcss_end into dvdcss_close. libdvdcss API now has 7 functions.
        * Another failed attempt at profiling vlc under Linux: ported the
          threads API to GNU Pth. Activate with --enable-pth. It doesn't seem to
          spawn new threads for me, maybe someone will have better luck.
        * Makefile optimizations.
        * Automatic build of libdvdcss if not found.

        * Put most builtins in plugins again due to performances issues (more
          about this in a forthcoming post here).
        * Fixed the painfully slow build process (at last!).
        * Moved the null plugin together with the dummy one.
        * Added new dummy input plugin.
      
         More on the dummy input plugin: we'll use it to insert commands in
        the playlist. Currently implemented are the "quit" and "pause" functions,
        here are examples on how they are used:
      
          vlc file.mpeg vlc:quit                # exit after file.mpeg has been read.
      
          vlc file1.mpeg vlc:pause:3 file2.mpeg # pause 3 seconds before playing
                                                # the next file.
      
         From now we can more efficiently benchmark vlc. For instance, to test
        the video output changes I am doing, I use such a command:
      
          time vlc -I dummy --noaudio file.mpeg vlc:quit
      
         Future extentions might include more interesting stuff like "switch
        to full screen", "repeat next file 3 times", "switch to SDL video
        output"...

        * DirectX plugin by Gildas Bazin <gbazin@netcourrier.com>.
      
          Notes: o I called it 'directx' instead of 'windx' because it
                   made a lot more sense to me.
                 o Completely untested. I didn't manage to compile it yet.
                 o Code in vout_directx.c will go through a big rewrite when
                   vout 4 is finished. Xav is already working on this.

        * Fixed the BeOS compile typo.
        * The ALSA plugin is back.
        * A gift for Gildas: plugins don't rely on backlinking any more. The
          drawback is the dirty magic in include/modules_export.h which has to
          be included whenever a module needs one of the functions in it. But
           a) we should less and less rely on those functions
           b) no plugin code modification was needed
      
         The BeOS and MacOS X modules may be broken when compiled as plugins,
         I'll check this later when I can reboot under BeOS.

        * Mandatory step for video output IV and the audio output quality
          fix: the output threads are now spawned when a decoder needs one,
          so it can decide the audio frequency or the video window size. Still
          under heavy construction, so don't get too excited at finding bugs
          in it yet.
      
          Note: this change broke the XVideo module, so I made its score much
          lower than before. I suspect xvideo.so had a bug before which only
          appears now. Other video output plugins may be broken as well, but
          again this might be due to old existing bugs showing their ugly head.
      
        * Fixed a few buffer overflows in the Gnome interface.
        * The module bank is now a global variable. The video output bank and
          the audio output bank might follow (when they exist).
        * Coding style and organization fixes to the spdif decoder.
        * autoconf and Makefile changes by Arnaud Gomes-do-Vale
          <arnaud@carrosse.frmug.org>.

        * Updated TODO list with Henri's Apr 6th post.
        * Built-in modules support almost finished.
      
          Now you can compile any module within vlc, even the Gnome, Qt, SDL
        and GGI modules at the same time, resulting in an awful extra fat
        vlc binary with gazillons of library dependecies.
      
          The only exception is that the Gnome and Gtk+ modules can't be
        compiled together into vlc. But you can have one compiled built-in
        and the other as a plugin.
      
          Another consequence is that libdl should no longer be needed under
        MacOS X. I'll check this as soon as possible.

        * Beginning of the built-in modules support.
      
         A few words about the changes:
      
        - heavy Makefile butchery has taken place, each plugin now has its own
          Makefile. I know recursive make blablah harmful, but it was just so
          much easier to do this way.
      
        - Makefile.in has disappeared, we now generate Makefile.opts with
          the overall configuration options, and Makefile.modules which is
          specific to module compilation.
      
        - After ./configure has been run you may want to modify Makefile.opts
          to check which modules will be compiled built-in or as plugins.
      
        - Some modules cannot be compiled built-in right now because proper
          linkage doesn't work yet. We don't really care since they're the
          interface or video output modules. The most important stuff works
          (iDCT, motion, YUV, input).
      
        - It's perfectly valid to compile a module both as built-in and as a
          plugin. vlc will only load the built-in one, but I'll add an option
          to ignore built-in modules for testing purposes.
      
        - We *should* see a performance increase here. I didn't have much time
          to test it, but if anyone can confirm and perhaps give a rough
          estimate of how much we gain...
