[FFmpeg-user] Release notes: Gif Parser (Info?)

In the list of things added to the last ffmpeg release one of the items
mentioned is 'gif parser'.  I was hoping a search would satisfy my
curiosity but I haven't been able to see what specific changes related to
the gif format were incorporated.  After some time I thought I'd turn to
the ffmpeg mailing list.

If anyone has any links, information or insights it will be appreciated.
In the meantime I will look closer at the likely places I've missed in
searching for information.

Note.  I'm not having any issues with ffmpeg and gif formatting in fact
quite the opposite as I've been playing with gif animation with full
transparency out of ffmpeg since this past January.  I was aware of some of
the previous issues related to gif format... especially frame/image
replacement... and perhaps it is those that have as of the last release
formally had solutions implemented.

Thank you.  I've really enjoyed watching the ffmpeg list and have learned a
lot from everyone posting and the feedback given.  (and no... I do NOT have
any plans to top post!)
