	Hello everyone,

Following up on the early August notice, I am sorry to inform or remind you 
that the VLC version 0.8.6 revision releases process is now to its end, after 
over a year and a half.

It has become increasingly difficult and time consuming to maintain VLC 0.8.6, 
and we anyway need to refocus our scarce and variable resources on 
maintaining VLC 0.9.x and further developping VLC 1.0. At this point in time, 
there are no plans for VLC 0.8.6j and further formal revision releases. We 
will continue to accept and apply critical fixes to the 0.8.6 tree for the 
benefit of "downstream" integrators and distributors, as source code only.

Note that there are widely published security issues with VLC 0.8.6i. If not 
already done, please upgrade to VLC 0.9.x or apply the fixes from the 0.8.6 
source tree.

Sorry for the inconvenience, thanks for your interest,
Best regards,

Rémi Denis-Courmont
