I'm really getting sick of 'rushed' releases with open source / free software. I found an issue with VLC player's RC3 release (the issue was around for RC1&2 as well, but I reported it during RC3). It was acknowledged, and confirmed by another user. RC4 got released, I bumped the thread saying the problem still existed in RC4. Now VLC 1.0 has been released, and the issue still stands. It's a problem with WMV's audio skipping/glitching up. It's not a complaint about VLC. VLC is really great. It's just really about practices of software releases that seem to be getting worse and worse lately. Rushing through the beta phase, and ignoring pretty big functionality problems just to get a new release out in time. I understand these guys are usually not getting paid for their work, but it makes more sense to make good solid releases rather than just releasing, and then patching a few weeks later. Having said that, VLC's newest release does fix major gripes I've had with the previous versions of the application, and I look forward to new releases.
