VLC 1.0.2 Security and Maintenance Update


The popular open source media player VLC gets a maintenance release to fix bugs found in previously released VLC 1.0.1. VLC 1.0.1 that was rolled out about two months ago had a number of bugs and security vulnerabilities that have been fixed in VLC 1.0.2. VLC 1.0.2 fixes issues in subtitles, Theora video compression format and Ogg, it addresses dvb-c channels-scanning and fixes some playlist sorting issues.

Mac OS X Port users benefit most from this update that addresses issues like, VLC crashing during an update, a newly added “Quit after Playback” feature and a full 64bit runtime compatibility on both Mac OS X 10.5 and 10.6 amongst other feature. See the changelog.

Because of the security issues addressed in this release, the VLC team strongly recommends everyone to update to VLC 1.0.2.
