FFmpeg 0.10 is now available with several new filters, MUXers, encoders, and decoders for this very popular audio/video library.

The release announcement has yet to hit the wire or the project's home-page, but FFmpeg 0.10 was tagged a few hours ago in Git. FFmpeg 0.10 is codenamed "Freedom" and it brings a fair amount of changes since the 0.9.1 release earlier in the month.
