The team behind VLC have announced that the v1.0.0 release, dubbed Goldeneye, is now available to download after 13 years of work.
There are a bunch of new features in the release, including instant pausing; frame-by-frame support; better video scaling; new formats (Raw Dirac. M2TS); new HD codecs; new skins, and live recording.
The Windows 32-bit version can be downloaded from here, and other operating systems here.
What we'd like to see is GPU-based decoding of certain high-definition codecs, as provided by MPC-HC, for example. Anyway, let us know what you think of v1.0.0.
