A release would indeed be welcome.
What is the state of vlc right now? I mean what needs to be fixed before a 
release and what is currently worked on?
Could we make a little todo list for the release?

I will begin with what I'm working on:

- complete rewrite of the configuration module (which was almost inexistant 
anyway ;-). It will make plugins specific configuration a breeze and will 
finally implement a config file :) (will hopefully be ready in about 2 weeks)

- a couple of bugs needs to be fixed on the win32 port (I will update the 
BUGS file)

- directx plugin needs a little bit of performance tuning.

- it would also be nice to have a little bit of testing on the win32 port 
before doing a release. The problem is that nobody wants to bother compiling 
the win32 port so it gets only tested after the release.
