dedication from G=FCnter.
And of course,you will earn your place in the xine galleries.
The other news item is about new releases:

prereleases before xine-lib 1.0. This release includes experimental
support for QuickTime and Windows Media binary codecs, and lots of bug
On the front-end side, we have xine-ui 0.9.16, which comes with some
usability improvements, as well as another bunch of bugfixes.
Both can be downloaded from our new download page at
A new release of gxine (0.2.1) is already in preparation and will be
