I have one line fix for bink audio decoding in mplayer. (ffplay itself
is not affected, probably). I'll send it right away.

I have a proposal for a numbering scheme.
Let's release:

0.7 - old abi
1.7 - new abi.

The meaning is simple. The major number indicates abi/api
compatibility. While the minor number indicate feature completeness.
This way user could easily compare different abi interfaces without
getting in confusion what is newer and what is older.

Aka in future 0.7.1 may be 0.7 with just security patches, while 0.8
would be oldabi with new features (if we still support it).

Best Regards.
