So, we are working quite actively on VLC 1.2. Many improvements were merged into VLC 1.2, notably for DVD and Blu-Ray playback.

Therefore, there were a few releases of libraries used by VLC, lately.

libbluray 0.2.1

A contrario of this weird number, this is actually the first release of libbluray that is usable.

libbluray is an open-source library designed for Blu-Ray Discs playback for media players, like VLC, xine or MPlayer.

It could be seen as the equivalent to libdvdnav, but for Blu-Ray Discs.

libaacs 0.3.0

In spite of this weird number too, this is actually the first release of libaacs.

libaacs is an open-source library implementing the AACS specification, for all systems, for interoperability.

True, stand-alone, it is of very little use :D

libdvdcss 1.2.11

I am, de facto, the new maintainer of libdvdcss. Congratz to me!

Therefore, I've done a release: 1.2.11.

This is just a boring release, just to incorporate patches and small maintenance, but shows that the project is still alive.

Other libraries

I just wanted to mention that:

  • libdvdnav 4.2.0
  • libdvdread 4.2.0
  • libdvbpsi 0.2.2 (not disc related)

were released too, in the last weeks.

Those projects are still alive and maintained. Cool.
