Platform support changes:
 * 3.0.x will be LTS (on a best-effort basis) that will be the last
   working version for a lot of systems.
   Indeed 3.0.x will be the last releases running on:
     - Windows XP, Vista, and the servers equivalent of those releases
     - macOS 10.7, 10,8 & 10.9, iOS 7 & 8
     - Android 2.x, 3.x & 4.0.x
     - Compilers before gcc 5.0 and clang 3.4

 * For 3.0, please note:
     * The Windows XP/2003/2003R2 support for VLC is now on a best-efforts basis:
       it should work, but not without limitations.
       libVLC support for Windows XP is deprecated.
       You _really_ should upgrade.
     * Windows Vista (all versions) without Platform Upgrade is not supported.
     * Linux support requires now a kernel newer than 2.6.26
     * Mac OS X 10.6 support is now removed. You need OS X 10.7.
