Theora 1.0 Video Codec Released
The Xiph.Org Foundation has announced the 1.0 release of the Theora video codec. This leading free software video codec is free of patents and any royalties. As another win for open standards, Theora 1.0 will be integrated with full support into future releases of the Mozilla Firefox and Opera web-browsers.
The Theora 1.0 source package is put out under a 3-clause BSD license and also includes a 190 format specification. With Theora 1.0 now out the door, Xiph.Org and Red Hat are working together on a new next-generation encoder currently codenamed Thusnelda.
The press release announcing Theora 1.0 can be found at Xiph.Org. Additional information on the Theora video codec is available at Theora.org.
