   A bit longer than actually expected, but finally, we are proud to
   announce a new release: FFmpeg 0.6. Check out the release notes
   and changelog.

   It is codenamed "Works with HTML5" as the special focus on this release
   were a lot of improvements that are relevant for HTML5 video. The H.264
   and Theora decoders are now significantly faster and the Vorbis decoder
   has seen important updates. This release supports Google's newly
   released libvpx library for the VP8 codec and the matroska demuxer was
   extended to support to WebM container.

   This release includes again an extensive number of changes; some of its
   highlights are:

     * Significant work to support at least decoding of all widespread
       mainstream proprietary codecs, and as usual broad coverage of
       widespread non-proprietary codecs, such as:
          + decoders and encoders
               o VP8 (via Google's libvpx library)
          + decoders
               o AMR-NB
               o Atrac1
               o HE-AAC v1
               o Bink
               o Bluray (PGS) subtitle
               o MPEG-4 Audio Lossless Coding (ALS)
               o WMA Pro
               o WMA Voice
     * Highlights among the newly supported container formats:
          + demuxers and muxers
               o Adobe Filmstrip
               o SoX native format
               o WebM support in Matroska de/muxer
          + demuxers
               o Bink
               o Core Audio Format demuxer
               o Dirac in Ogg
               o IV8
               o QCP
               o VQF
               o Wave64
          + muxers
               o IEC-61937
               o RTSP
     * faster AAC decoding
     * faster H.264 decoding
     * numberous ARM optimizations
     * important updates to the Vorbis decoder
     * RTP packetization support for H.263, and AMR
     * RTP depacketization support for AMR, ASF, H.263, Theora and Vorbis
     * RTMP/RTMPT/RTMPS/RTMPE/RTMPTE protocol support via librtmp
     * the new ffprobe tool
