Little update

It's small, but it's the first update since a long time so worth mentioning. I reviewed and applied two patches: one from Stanislav Brabec (SuSE) fixing a little compilation warnings, one from Rémi Duraffort (VLC) fixing memory leaks.

Notice also that the project is switching from CVS to Bazaar, so new version can now be found here:

Christmas Goom

As promised, I worked to make goom 2 ready for a public release for Christmas, the main problems are fixed I think : goom2k4-rc1 is available for download in the file section.

Of course many things I wanted to be ready for this version are not: wide usage of goomsl and a better API for libgoom will wait for goom2k5.

Thanks for feedback.

- the rotozoomer is now nicely integrated (maybe it appears to much... we'll see)
- I also made less disturbing fireworks and rain effects by making them only appears on screen's borders.
I'm now trying to fix a strange behaviour of the xmms plugin: sometime it does not cleanup when xmms is closed. strange strange strange...
