   The VideoLAN team is happy to deliver version 0.2.82 of vlc,
codenamed "renater sucks". It is mostly a bugfix release which fixes

  * Win32 fixes - DirectX audio output, DVD input.
  * X11 fixes - better XVideo detection, fix for bad cursor error.
  * Misc fixes - crashes fixed in ac3dec, spudec, input_ps, intf_rc, yuvmmx...
  * Environment detection improvements at build time.
