VLC media player release: 0.8.6e and coverity
We just released a new stable version.
This version is ONLY focused on security vulnerabilities and minor bugfixes.
0.9.0 version is in the work, and an alpha preview is due soon. :D
I am quite unpleased with Coverity, that does a free scanning of open source projects. We applied many times for VLC, and they always replied that they would do it soon, but they actually never done it. :'(
This is a bit bad, because VLC is one important Open Source project, and more used that some of the projects they already scan...
Anyway, this is a bit problematic, because we need help in finding security issues and do some auditing of the VLC media player code. And since there are web plugins on VLC, this is dangerous.
