    About bloody time. I'm tired of having my AppUpdate Widget constantly telling me to update to 1.0.0RC4 when I already have RC4 installed.

    Because 1.0 is newer than 0.92 ;) Seriously, as a rule-of-thumb, it's a good idea to use the latest version of an app. At the very least, bug fixes are usually integrated in later releases. Here are some of the features of 1.0 (from the VLC homepage):

    • Free, Open Source and cross-platform
    • Independant of systems codecs to support most video types
    • Live recording
    • Instant pausing and Frame-by-Frame support
    • Finer speed controls
    • New HD codecs (AES3, Dolby Digital Plus, TrueHD, Blu-Ray Linear PCM, Real Video 3.0 and 4.0, ...)
    • New formats (Raw Dirac, M2TS, ...) and major improvements in many formats...
    • New Dirac encoder and MP3 fixed-point encoder
    • Video scaling in fullscreen
    • RTSP Trickplay support
    • Zipped file playback
    • Customizable toolbars
    • Easier encoding GUI in Qt interface
    • Better integration in Gtk environments
    • MTP devices on linux
    • AirTunes streaming
    • New skin for the skins2 interface

    Thanks for the heads up! VLC is always the one I use to handle WMV files. Hope it outperforms the previous versions.

    VLC is very stable with the version 1.0 release. Lots of other things have also been fixed. You can do live previews like Quicktime.
