Dear VideoLAN users, On the heels of 0.9.2 the VideoLAN team presents version 0.9.3, the first bugfix release of the 0.9 series. We are also putting a call out for new Windows developers for our team. == 0.9.3 improvements == Some of the improvements from 0.9.2 to 0.9.3 include: * Fixed sensitivity of the Windows Fullscreen controller * Major performance improvements for Mac OS X (both Intel and PPC) * Fixed DTS channel order * Fixed passthrough of digital audio * Improved pure text subtitle rendering on Mac OS X * Many fixes for the Qt4 Linux and Windows interface * Fixes for various crashes (PS, SSA, mkv, xspf, freetype) * and more... The complete release notes for this version can be read at <http://www.videolan.org/developers/vlc/NEWS >. Binary packages for Windows and Mac OS X, as well as source code tarballs are available for download at http://www.videolan.org/vlc/. Help is available, as usual, in many places: * The documentation (we need help keeping it up to date!): http://wiki.videolan.org/Documentation:Documentation/ * The forum: http://forum.videolan.org * Mailing lists: http://www.videolan.org/support/lists.html * IRC: #videolan on Freenode We'd like to thank all our contributors, testers and users around the world for their support and help making this release possible. Also a big thanks to all Mac OS X users who submitted their crashlogs. These crashlogs have proven to be invaluable for this bugfix release. == WANTED: Windows developers == We are putting out a call for NEW Windows developers. At the moment, our Windows-port is sorely missing some much needed love from a true Windows developer. Our team has been without a Windows developer for several months now, which is blocking us from supporting our largest usergroup in the manner we want to. We are therefore looking for developers to help our team in the areas of debugging crashes, Direct X, A/V capturing, ActiveX and Windows integration, so we can hopefully resume supporting our, largest group of users in the best possible way. If we are unable to find new developers, new versions of VLC media player for Windows might become less frequent and severely out of sync with the Linux and Mac OS X versions. So, no donations for work on the Windows version, no "opportunities"- emails, for Windows we only require: Developers, Developers, Developers !!!!!
