Phoronix: Theora 1.1 Thusnelda Is Released

Theora, the open and royalty-free format that comes from the same folks that work on the Ogg audio formmat, has officially reached version 1.1. Theora 1.1 (codenamed "Thusnelda") is much-improved over version 1.0, which was reached last November.

A description of the major changes in Theora Thusnelda along with source download links to libtheora 1.1 are available from the Xiph.org mailing list...
