    VLC Media Player v1.1.0 (Final) Has Been Released

    VLC Media Player v1.1.0 has now been released.

    Download Links
    Windows: EXE / 7zip
    Mac: DMG

    What's New?
    Code:
    Ready for HD
    * GPU decoding on Windows Vista and 7, using DxVA2 for H.264, VC-1 and MPEG-2
    * GPU decoding on GNU/Linux, using VAAPI for H.264, VC-1 and MPEG-2
    * DSP decoding using OpenMax IL, for compatible embedded devices
    * Improved support for MKV HD, including seeking fixes, and 7.1 channels codecs
    * Support for new codecs, like Blu-Ray subtitles, MPEG-4 lossless and VP8
    NB: so far, on Windows, VideoLAN is quite sad to be forced to recommend nVidia® GPU, until ATI® fixes their drivers on Windows, and until VLC developer get access to some Intel® hardware supporting GPU decoding.
    
    Extensions
    * New add-ons and script framework so one can personalize its vlc.
    * Written in lua
    * 2 main types of scripts:
      - content add-ons, integrated in the playlist
      - functionnalities extensions, like metadata searching on the web, or subtitles look-ups
    * Very Simple
    
    Web improvements
    * Support for WebM decoding and encoding
    * Improved web plugins
    * Better streaming capabilities
    
    Better Audio experience
    * Integrated playlist in the Qt4 interface
    * Multiple views (like album art) in the playlist in the Qt4 interface
    * Support for AMR-NB, Mpeg-4 ALS, Vorbis 6.1/7.1, FLAC 6.1/7.1 and WMAS
    * CDDB and CD-Text works now on the Windows port when listening to CD-Audio
    * Support for DVD-Audio files (.aob)
    * Improved meta-data and album-art support
    
    Faster, Lighter
    * Faster decoding, with up to 40% speed-ups, in HD resolutions
    * First part of the Video Output core rewrite
    * Removal or rewrite of dozens of modules, code simplification and tens of thousands of lines of code removed
    * Some functionalities that are less used are now moved to extensions
    * More assembly optimizatinons, especially SSSE3/SSE4 and ARM Neon
    * Fewer threads used
    
    Better for developers
    * Simplified and improved libVLC, removal of exceptions for better C integration
    * New phonon-backend for Qt applications, on all platforms
    * New C++ bindings

    Changelog
    Code:
    Changes between 1.0.6 and 1.1.0:
    --------------------------------
    Important changes for users:
     * On Linux, known bugs in the ALSA library might prevent audio output.
       Update to alsa-lib v1.0.23-2-g8d80d5f or later, or use the libpulse audio
       output plugin instead of the ALSA one (if you have PulseAudio).
    
    Important changes for packagers:
     * The module cache has moved to ${libdir}/vlc/. The module cache can now be
       generated at install time except if you use staged installation. In the
       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.
     * 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.
    
    
    Access:
     * Support for the sftp protocol
     * Support for CDDB servers for Audio-CD on the Windows port
     * New memory input (imem) access and access_demux module to feed VLC from data in memory
     * New avio module to use libavformat capabilities for network streams, like rtmp://
     * Port of the screen module from Xlib to XCB
     * Port of the dc1394 module from libdc1394 to libdc1394 v2.0
    
    Decoders:
     * Support for DxVA2 for H.264 decoding on GPU on Windows Vista and 7
     * Support for VAAPI for H.264 decoding on GPU on GNU/Linux
     * Support for Audio/Video decoders and encoders using OpenMAX IL components for DSP
    
     * Support PGS subtitles for Blu-Ray
     * Support for HD-DVB subtitles - Display Definition Segment
     * Invmem module improvements
     * Support for Atrac1 audio codec
     * Support for SSE3 and SSE4 capabilities in some codecs
     * Multiple improvements for subtitles styles in .SRT and .SSA
     * Support for native decoding of Windows Media Speech (Voice) audio codec
     * Support for AMR-NB audio codec on the Windows and Mac port
     * Support for Indeo5 video codec
     * Improvements on the FLAC format (7.1 channels and 88.2/176.4/192 kHz support)
     * Direct rendering is used more often with H.264 in avcodec module
     * Support for MPEG-4 ALS lossless audio codec
     * Support for VP8 codec
     * Support for 7.1 channels in vorbis audio
    
    Demuxers:
     * Many fixes on Matroska support (notably seeking) and support for Webm format
     * Support for .aob files from DVD-Audio (MLP and LPCM) (Full disc support is NOT present yet)
     * Support for ADPCM in .flv streams
     * Support for TwinVQ (.vqf) and AMV (.amv) files
     * Various EGP improvements
     * Support for embedded subtitles in OpenDML and legacy .avi files
     * Metadata and cover art improvements
    
    Video Output:
     * Rewrite of the video output core and most video outputs
     * Added desktop mode to the Direct3D output module. It differs from DirectX
       desktop mode, because it hides the desktop icons, but reacts to mouse clicks.
     * New x11, glx and xv modules based on XCB
     * New deinterlacing modes based on yadif and yadif(x2)
     * New audio/video filter to show audio level on the video output
     * Enhanced AtmoLight filter with hardware support for
         Classic AtmoLight (http://www.vdr-wiki.de/wiki/index.php/Atmo-plugin)
         Quattro AtmoLight (use just 4 Classic AtmoLights as one)
         MoMoLight (http://www.ambilight4pc.com/momolight/momolight.html)
         Simple serial DMX controller (http://www.ulrichradig.de/ search for DMX)

     * Podcast images are now displayed
    
    Service discovery:
     * Service discoveries can now be written in lua
     * Service discovery for Picture/Music/Video user directories
     * Service discovery based on libudev
     * Shoutcast Service discoveries are now removed
    
    Encoders:
     * x264, add psy-rd parameter and change default settings
     * x264, add profile-limitter same way as x264.exe has, for example
        #transcode{vcodec=h264,venc=x264{profile=baseline,level=1.2},vb=384,width=320,height=176}
     * x264, defaults to crf=23 as x264.exe-does, if bitrate is given,
       uses ABR and if qp-value is set uses CQP

    Interfaces:
     * Renamed the legacy rc, telnet and http interfaces to oldrc, oldtelnet

    See changelog above for specifics. Other than that, everything else mentioned should apply to all versions.

    It's still beta (I think), but keep an eye on it as it's sure to be good.
    Yes VLMC does look promising. I have been nagging the developers to get an updated Windows build out but they said they been waiting for VLC 1.1.0 which is now out, so hopefully they should release the next Win build for VLMC soon. It's actually pre-alpha which is before alpha and way before beta, but even so videolan are quickly becoming my favourable developers of software!
