VideoLAN (VLC) 1.0.5 Changelog / Impressions

The VideoLAN devs have released another version of their downloadable freeware multimedia player, bringing it up to VLC 1.0.5.

Impressions and the changelog after the jump.

VideoLAN 1.0.5 produces minimal audio quality improvements over the previous versions though I've noticed that lower frequencies now have more force. The change is minimal, but it's there.

From the VLC site:

Changes between 1.0.4 and 1.0.5:

* SubRip extra styles improvements
* Fix potential crashes in SSA and svg decoders

Mac OS X Interface:
* Improved support for the 2009 Apple Remote

Windows port:
* Use of gcc 4.4.2 to compile instead of gcc 4.2. This might slightly
increase performance and fix x264 issues

* Portuguese Brazilian, Lithunanian, Romanian, Ukranian, Japanese, Bengali,
Walloon, Galician, Danish, Khmer, Polish, Slovenian, Vietnamese, Finnish
Russian, Slovak translation updates
* New Malayalam, Macedoninan, Nynorsk translations
