What's new in 1.1.3

A bit after the 1.1.2, we had to fix some important crashing bugs and you deserve a new release!

What's new in 1.1.2

Quite soon after the 1.1.1, we were able to squash more annoying bugs, hence a new release for you!

  • Audio filters fixes to solve the "mono" bug
  • Fix of the direct3d output module that display nothing on older nVidia and ATI cards, when overlay was activated
  • Extensions and scripts updates
  • Miscellaneous fixes in interfaces
  • Updated translations
  • Various crashes and errors fixed

What was new in 1.1.1

After more than 17million downloads of VLC 1.1.0 in one month,
this is a release focused on numerous fixes and small improvements:

  • Multiple libVLC improvements and fixes
  • Windows video output fixes
  • DxVA2 decoding on ATI GPU, with Catalyst 10.7
  • Various crashes and errors fixed
  • Multiple fixes for interfaces
  • Various decoders and demuxers fixes
  • Updated translations

What's new in all 1.1.x releases?

Ready for HD

  • GPU decoding on Windows Vista and 7, using DxVA2 for H.264, VC-1 and MPEG-2
  • GPU decoding on GNU/Linux, using VAAPI for H.264, VC-1 and MPEG-2
  • DSP decoding using OpenMax IL, for compatible embedded devices
  • Improved support for MKV HD, including seeking fixes, and 7.1 channels codecs
  • Support for new codecs, like Blu-Ray subtitles, MPEG-4 lossless and VP8

NB: so far, on Windows for GPU decoding, VideoLAN is recommending nVidia® GPU, or ATI® GPUs, with the Catalyst 10.7. Intel® GPU support will come when VLC developers get access to some Intel® hardware supporting GPU decoding.
