Well, "This is 2.4" and "This is stable code" are two different things. We 
still have some patches to review, etc. Whether you want to pull stuff in now 
or later is up to you. Obviously the big new features that have been added 
(mainly RTMPE9) work just fine; whether there are any other interesting bugs 
that need fixing is the other question.

In particular we need Kazakov Viktor to quit forking us and submit his latest 
patches. And we need Steven Penn to quit putting up unauthorized clones of the 
project. If you guys want to help, then help - that means working within the 
project, not outside it. If you want to fork, then quit calling it rtmpdump, 
because you don't have any right to that name.
