A new release
Today, you should see a new release of VLC for WinRT on the Windows Store: 0.1.0.
This is the second major release of this application. While still beta, it should be way more stable than the previous one.
The major changes are:
- using libVLC 2.2.0 core,
- redesign of the interface,
- huge performance improvements,
- use of Winsock for networking instead of WinRTsock,
- use of Windows 8.1 widgets,
- move the interface code to Universal to prepare Windows Phone 8.1 port.
To get more stability, the performance improvements and the preparation to port for WP8.1, we had to move the application to Windows 8.1-only.
Be careful, this is still not as perfect and stable as the desktop release.
While this release is still x86-only, we've made great advances on the ARM port. More news soon.
New release :)
So, we've worked quite a bit to fix the numerous crashes that some people had and we've released again, less than 4 weeks after the previous one.
It notably should fix the crashes on start, the crashes on audio indexing and the issues with DLNA servers!
We're working on a new release soon, to fix more bugs.
And we're working, of course, on the ARM compilation.
