MPlayer 1.1 Magically Surfaces With New Features
Phoronix: MPlayer 1.1 Magically Surfaces With New Features
The last official release of MPlayer was version 1.0-rc4 and it came in January of 2011. Since then there's been no official releases so after more than a decade, MPlayer 1.0 has yet to be released, but being quietly available now is... MPlayer 1.1...
It would be interesting to have an article on what's the status between MPlayer and mplayer2, FFmpeg and libav and maybe even MythTV and Torc.
vaapi still not merged?
Did you update the code for svn and post it to their mailing list? Vaapi won't magically happen, someone needs to do that.

There is a “mplayer-vaapi” package under Arch Linux, so isn’t the work already done?

Well, mplayer-vaapi isn't that old, but still, someone needs to port the vaapi bits to latest svn and post to the mplayer-dev-eng mailing list. Bonus points if you also port it to mplayer2.

Yes, this insane forking mess should be correctly explained. Differences, activity stadistics, tests and more.

I'm a little puzzled with the re-inclusion of FAAC into mplayer because if you wanted to keep free-licence codecs (like Gentoo does using the branding USE flag) you had to favour FAAD over FAAC. Why this turn-over?
