Some VLC 1.1.0 Facts
With VLC 1.1.0 on its way, one of its developers, Jean-Baptiste Kempf, decided to share some cool facts about this new release. And since we have always kept you updated with most of the news about VLC, I thought it would be good to share these facts with all you linuxers.
The great new features in VLC 1.1, visualizations, extensions etc are no doubt going to make VLC way better than ever. This is going to be a major VLC release since VLC 1.0.0, released in July, last year.
VLC 1.1. is going to be codenamed The Luggage, because of the novel series DiscWorld. The Luggage, is a large chest which follows RinceWind the wizzard, a fictional character of the series. May be the developers got inspired from the The Luggage's power and usefulness to its master, RinceWood .
This one is considered as a big change, since all of VLC's previous codenames were based on the characters in James Bond movie GoldenEye.
