VDPAU Library 0.8 Released
NVIDIA's Aaron Plattner has announced the release of libvdpau 0.8 as the library for the VIdeo Decode and Presentation API for Unix.
Version 0.8 of libvdpau is quite a basic update for this library used for offloading video playback decoding to GPUs for NVIDIA's proprietary Linux graphics drivers and the open-source Radeon/Nouveau Gallium3D drivers via the VDPAU state tracker. The 0.8 changes include a fix for VdpPictureInfo and adding the VDPAU_DRIVER_PATH environment variable for overriding the default search path for back-end driver interfaces.
More details on the libvdpau 0.8 release can be found via the mailing list announcement.
