Hi everybody.

The first version of dtsdec, a free DTS Coherent Acoustics decoder, has been 
released: http://www.videolan.org/dtsdec.html

DTS Coherent Acoustics is a high quality multi-channel (5.1) digital audio 
format in use in DVD's and DTS audio CD's and until know (as far as I know) 
there was no Open Source implementation of this codec.

Of course there is still much work to be done on dtsdec and a few things are 
still not implemented but it is nonetheless working quite well on all the 
samples I could get my hand on (not a lot though, I have to admit).

VLC media player also becomes the first Open Source application able to play 
DTS audio. You can find pre-compiled versions of VLC with DTS support over 
here: http://download.videolan.org/pub/testing/vlc-0.7.1-test1/
