The VideoLAN team is happy to announce version 0.2.4 of miniSAPserver.

This new release is mostly a bugfix release to fix an important problem 
with the SDPs miniSAPserver announces, which were simply incorrect.

Bugfixes and new stuff includes:
* Bugfix in RTP payloadformat announce (now uses 33 [MPEG TS] instead 
of 14 [MP3])
* Added a config option to set the SAP delay
* Added a=tool SDP parameter so miniSAPserver announces can be more 
easily recognized
* Added a=mux:m2t and a=packetformat:RAW SDP parameters (not required, 
but some players like these. VBrick player comes to mind.)
* Changed a=plgroup to a=x-plgroup because it is a non standardized 
parameter (new style will be supported by VLC 0.7.3 and up)
* Updated the manpage
* Clarified that miniSAPserver is only supposed to work for MPEG TS 
* Fixed a missing newline in the -h help

Many in the VL team have come to recognize that miniSAPserver is 
essentially a very bad piece of software. Work may therefore not 
continue on it, since it would require quite some work to make it more 
useful then it is now. Since VLC provides most with the desired 
functionalities already, there seems little point in this.
