I normally don’t post info about version bumps, but since the last MPlayer one was a while ago, and since I’ve been way too busy lately to work on anything Gentoo related, I thought I’d make mention of this one.
Not much to say, though, really … there’s a new snapshot in town (media-video/mplayer-1.0_rc2_p25993). It fixes some security issues in older versions, which was the reason for the bump. I’ve tried to change my approach of bumping the package every month or so and instead just focus on getting one release working really well and as many bugs fleshed out as possible in that release. So far the approach has worked well.
Normally I’d have a good idea of what’s changed between releases, but since I haven’t had time to keep an eye on mplayer-dev either, I couldn’t really say. I think there’s a few DVD fixes, but I’m not sure. Sorry.
Anyway, as usual, let us know if you have any issues. Should hit the tree shortly. Enjoy.
