xine-lib is a free multimedia engine, released under the GNU GPL. See COPYING
+If you're reading this and you maintain an application which uses xine-lib
+1.1, you should be considering moving to xine-lib 1.2. You may need to
+adapt your software a bit: various deprecated/obsolete interfaces, present
+in 1.1, have gone in 1.2.
+The 1.1 series is, as of early 2012, receiving bug fixes only. It is
+regarded as deprecated, and is likely to become obsolete and (mostly)
+unmaintained in 2013, or possibly a little sooner.
see the doc/ directory for more information about xine-lib. You will find
various README files, FAQ and developer documentation (xine hacker's guide)
there. Developers will find additional documentation for xine interfaces
