Dear VideoLAN users,

The VideoLAN Team is pleased to announce the release of
VLC media player 0.8.6f.

This version is aimed at fixing security vulnerabilities in the
Subtitle demuxer, Real RTSP demuxer, MP4 demuxer and Cinepak codec
which affect VLC media player 0.8.6e and earlier.

We would like to credit Luigi Ariemma for reporting the Subtitle
issue (which was only partially fixed in 0.8.6e) and Drew Yao of
Apple Product Security for reporting the Real RTSP demuxer,
MP4 demuxer and Cinepak codec issues.

This release also includes improved video output on multi-screen
setups running Mac OS X and compatibility with Windows 9x/ME
has been restored.

We strongly recommend all users to update to this new version and as
always to only download from the main VideoLAN website.

Enjoy this release,

The VideoLAN Team
