    http://sourceforge.net/project/showfiles.php?group_id=24405&package_id=35144&release_id=624383

    Major Changes from v1.1.2 to v1.1.3

    Platforms:
      Added support for Microsoft Visual C++ 8.0 compiler
      Added support for Microsoft Visual C++ 9.0 compiler
        Note. MSVC 7.1, 8.0 & 9.0 each have a sub-directory under AAFWinSDK.
        This is a change to the previous support for MSVC 7.1.
      Added support for Microsoft Vista

    Plugin codec changes:
      Added Avid DNxHD and SMPTE VC3 plugin codecs
        Note. As supplied, these AAF codecs provide wrapping capability.
        With an additional library, they can provide compress/decompress capability.
      Use MSVC project configuration to control linking with optional VC3 library
      Added IAAFEssenceDataStream2 for access to MXF Essence Element Key
      Added setting of MXF Essence Element Key in CDCI, JPEG, DNxHD & VC3 codecs
      Added simple fallback strategy to select which codec to use when reading essence
        from a file without a codec definition on its file descriptor.
      Correctly open AAF files containing internal VC3 essence with legacy ULs

    Existing API changes:
      RGBADescriptor::PixelLayout and RGBADescriptor::PaletteLayout changed to
        accept both '0' and 0 as terminator.
      Change FileDescriptor's GetContainerFormat and GetCodecDef to check if
        the weak reference can be resolved before getting the referenced
        object.  MXF files may have references to container and codec
        definitions that are not present in the dictionary.

    Memory usage:
      Fix memory leaks
      Reduce memory footprint
      Add MemoryLeakTest test
     
    Utilities:
      AAFAnalyzer updated for use with AMWA registration website
      Updated AAFAnalyzer to build with updated AAFWinSDK/vs7 platform
      Added AAF-XML XSD generation stylesheets
      Moved CAAFBuiltinDefs.h from the public API in ref-impl/include to
        Utilities/Include to make it clear that it's only an example or utility.
      Replaced deprecated CAAFBuiltinDefs.h macro usage with COM API calls
      Fix writing past the end of string bug in aafembed

    Documentation:
      Updated README.TXT to reflect updated AAFWinSDK/vs* structure

    Thanks everyone!
