totem 0.99.0


Totem "Keep on dancing" 0.98.0 is out.

Totem is movie player for the Gnome desktop based on xine. It features a
playlist, a full-screen mode, seek and volume controls, as well as a
pretty complete keyboard navigation.

It comes with added functionality such as:
- Video thumbnailer for GNOME
- Webcam utility
- Nautilus properties tab


- GNOME 2.2

And for the backend:
- xine-lib 1.0 beta 12 or better
- gstreamer 0.6.x from CVS or 0.7.x

It is advised that distributors ship the xine backend by default.

If Totem locks up on startup, before showing the main window, please
and for possible work-arounds:

The upstream bug is:

* Added support for error messages coming from the xine engine itself
* Fixed playbacks of DVDs and other media in the movie menu
* Speed up playlist loading
* Worked around a bug in egg-recent that would add a '/' to local filenames
* Read links in .desktop files to be able to use the drag'n'drop of the video
  as a bookmark system
* devfs support, FreeBSD support and misc. parsing fixes for the CD
  selection widget
* moved fullscreen code out of the video widget and into totem (enables
  fullscreen to work on the gstreamer backend)
* Automatic GNOME-based Proxy configuration
* Make the visual quality option menu actually work
* Add the /apps/totem/debug entry to enable debug in the playback engine
* Fixes concerning the colliding error and buffering dialogs
* Added a --disable-lirc argument to configure
* Fix handling of Recent Files and URIs


A big thanks to the translators as well, Totem is now available in 29
