   On the road to the stable 0.3.0 release, the VideoLAN team is proud
to announce version 0.2.80 of vlc. It's been a long time since last
release, because most students here are dealing with their end-of-year
duties, but there are a few excellent new things in this release

   Major changes:

  * A very promising Windows port, using the Gtk and SDL libraries.
  * Network support is back.
  * MMX and 3D Now! routines in the AC3 decoder.
  * BeOS interface improvements, Gnome/Gtk interface merge.
  * DVD support enhancements.
  * Lots of bugfixes, as usual.

   Binaries are available for Debian x86, BeOS x86, and Windows. Builds
