The FFmpeg project has moved closer to its 1.0 release with the Sunday release of FFmpeg 0.9.

There's quite a lot of changes for FFmpg 0.9 since the 0.8 series. Among the changes is a native Dirac decoder, MMSH seeking support, support for reading MPO fils, a libass filter, FLB sample-rate change support, many ARM optimizations, libspeex encoding support, hardware accelerated H.264 decoding for Google Android, libswresample support, and much more. There's also many bug-fixes as part of this new release.

The FFmpeg project encourages everyone to upgrade to version 0.9 unless they are followers of Git master.
