I can only comment on the BeOS port. Currently, what the user sees
- we can play more file formats (mp3, mp4, ogg etc)
- we have dvd menus -> not reliable, so only "half-there"
- settings window (I haven't tried Erics recent commit with
"on the fly" changes of filters, currently,
it is confusing when and if settings actually
- snappier playback control thanks to aout3
- message window (with tons of cryptic message only useful for
developers or maybe people wanting to report a
- huge increase in launch time -> major regression
- not so well tested as of yet
- no improvements to playlist handling (before I finish+commit what
I'm doing now)
I have a hard time being involved with vlc development, since my dev
machine has no access to the net. In my experience, I cannot keep a
tree up to date by simply invoking "cvs update". Most of the times, I
have to check out into a clean folder, or my tree will somehow be
broken (missing files added in the meantime or something else, I have
no idea). However, I have fixed quite a bunch of bugs and memory leaks
(in the BeOS port) additional to my work on the playlist handling.
That's why I would like to get a chance to commit my work before the
next release, but I'm going to do it all at once (since it's such a
hassle), when I have finished the playlist stuff.
