-rc4 has arrived.
+Yes, we can!
+MPlayer 1.0rc4 continues the tradition of long overdue, but better late
+than never releases. It has been tested thoroughly to work with the FFmpeg
+0.6 branch. It will be useful to distros and other users relying on FFmpeg
+0.6. To get the latest and greatest in features and bug fixes, Subversion
+HEAD should be a better fit.
+1.0rc4 once again adds a slew of new binary codecs and leverages all the
+stuff added to FFmpeg. Notable additions are VP8 decoding, H.264 bug fixes
+and speedups, unencrypted Blu-ray support. Network streams can now be played
+through FFmpeg, there has been quite a bit of subtitle work and Ogg and
+Matroska demuxer defaults were switched to libavformat. The window position
+is now decided by the window manager.
+Our constant efforts to clean up the codebase continue as usual. A ton
+of compiler warnings disappeared and there have been refactorings all
+around. External library copies have been synchronized with upstream.
+The internal liba52 copy is gone and it is now possible to build against
+external libmpeg2 and libmpg123.
