Libvisual 0.4.0

Heya, finally after a year of hacking, rewriting, refactoring and plain coding. Libvisual 0.4.0

Remove old plugins when upgrading to 0.1.6

I've been writing this everywhere, but people still seem to overlook. I can't stress this anough. Remove the old plugins before installing libvisual 0.1.6. Libvisual plugins are located in "%prefix/lib/libvisual/" that is often "/usr/lib/libvisual/" or "/usr/local/lib/libvisual/". Simply remove this directory and reinstall everything from scratch.

Libvisual-0.1.6 released!

After a serious while of work, we present you
a new release of libvisual!!!

Check the individual file releases for more
information about changes and such!

It's very important that you remove the old
plugins before installing libvisual. This
can be done by removing %prefix/lib/libvisual/*
(where prefix is /usr or /usr/local or wherever
you installed libvisual).

Also note that in order to render any visuals
you also need to download libvisual-plugins
and you probably want libvisual-xmms for
the xmms support as well!... read more

libvisual-0.1.5 released!

We've done a new libvisual release!!

Most important in this release is that the package
screw up is fixed. The buildtrees have been ported
to automake-1.8 and many cleanups have
gone in.

Thanks to our new developer Duilio for most
of this work!!!

Libvisual-0.1.4 released

Libvisual-0.1.4 is released together
with libvisual-plugins libvisual-xmms
and libvisual-nebulus.

Some work has gone into portability
but most noticeable are the API docs
that can be generated using doxygen.
