Version 0.6 A.K.A. 1.0RC1 Imminent

With the latest commit (rev.30) to the SVN, DragonOgg moves one step closer to version 1.0. The new OggPlayerVBN class is undergoing the final bit of testing before it's ready for the 0.6 release, and I'm finishing up the last couple of parts of OggPlaylist and it's supporting infrastructure.

I'm loath to give a timescale because if I do I know something will go catastrophically wrong and cause me to miss it, but hopefully Version 0.6 should be released in early July, and as long as no absolutely evil bugs are found, V1.0 can be tentatively pencilled in for mid August!

Version 0.5 released

Version 0.5 Released -
