VLC 1.1 released, Hardware Acceleration along with new Codec support.
VLC v1.1 was just released and comes with hardware acceleration compatible with Windows 7, Vista and Linux while no official support with MAC. The new version also brings a general 40 percent speed boost from a massive code cleanup. VLC v1.1 includes a new addon and script framework which enables extensions and the VP8 and MEPG-4 lossless codecs have been added to it along with container support for MKV HD and Google's open-source WebM format. The new VLC seems to offer improvements over the previous ones due to hardware acceleration support and the new Codecs.
