   The VideoLAN team is trying to bring back the OpenSource "release
early, release often" tradition we had lost for a moment. So you
probably haven't had time to compile 0.2.71, and here is already vlc
version 0.2.72, codenamed "tromag sucks". Mostly a bugfix release
correcting problems introduced in 0.2.71.

   Major changes:

  * Fixed a bug introduced in 0.2.71 preventing to read some DVDs.
  * Fixed the BeOS "window sometimes doesn't appear" bug.
  * Fixed the MacOS X "vlc crashes when run withoug arguments" bug.
  * Modules can now be built into the application. As a result,
    performances are probably improved. Also, the MacOS X port no
    longer needs the dl library and the BeOS port doesn't need to
    find plugins.
