VLC media player 0.8.6f release for Ubuntu Linux


We are pleased to announce the release of VLC media player 0.8.6f.

This is a bugfix release. VLC media player 0.8.6e and earlier versions suffer from security vulnerabilities in the Subtitle demuxer, Real RTSP demuxer, MP4 demuxer and Cinepak codec.

This release also includes improved video output on multi-screen setups running Mac OS X and compatibility with Windows 9x/ME has been restored.

We strongly recommend all users to update to this new version.
More information can be found in our Security Advisory and in the Release Notes.
