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.
