Another update for VLC will be available shortly. Here are the Mac-specific improvements with a main focus on full compatibility with Mac OS X Lion. While some GUI fixes and improved handling of the Apple Remote were already silently added to VLC 1.1.9 and 1.1.10, here are some more noticable:
- Fixed scrolling direction if the input device’s signal is inverted
- Updated the auhal audio output to the latest API
- Disabled window restoration for privacy reasons
Regrettably, the screen input module will remain unavailable in VLC’s 1.1 series for Mac OS X Lion.
Additionally, this update will include these fixes for all Mac OS X versions:
- Resolved conflict between iTunes and VLC with regard to Media Key handling
- If enabled in VLC, it will respond to the keys as long as it is the front application. If not, iTunes/QuickTimePlayer will.
- If disabled in VLC, iTunes/QuickTimePlayer will always respond to the keys.
- Fixed playback of MPEG TS files in the ports for PowerPC and Intel (32-Bit)
- VLC’s 64bit port was not affected
- Fixed images disappearing on the interface
- Reduced installation size by up to 30 MB
- Updated codecs
For more details on this update and the important cross-platform changes, please have a look at the release notes, which will be available upon public release.
Update (July 16th): VLC 1.1.11 is now available from videolan.org or through VLC’s internal updater.
